Has there ever been a better-timed commercial than the Nike one involving Tiger and Rory?

Remember that awesome commercial/mini-movie that Nike released last week? You know, the one that's so cool it even has its own title, "Ripple," and involves Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy?

Here it is, in case you don't. And yes, it's worth watching all two minutes of it:

If you don't remember or don't care to watch, we'll summarize: A young Rory grows up wanting to emulate Tiger as he takes over golf and by the end of the ad, he's teeing it up alongside his idol at a PGA Tour event. And now, just days after the commercial's release, the two will play together in a late Sunday pairing at the Masters.

How's that for timing? Are Nike's ad people psychics?

It's only the second time Tiger and Rory have been in the same group at a major (The 2013 U.S. Open at Merion), but chances are, it won't be the last. Even more certain? We'll be seeing this commercial a lot more in the near future.
