Woods Palmer Thugs: Golfers Beat Up Thugs In ‘PGA Tour 14’ Commercial

Tiger Woods and Arnold Palmer fend off some thieving thugs in a new commercial for the video game "PGA Tour 14."

AS NESN notes, the ad begins with the duo walking to a private jet. A group of thugs then confronts them, wanting to steal the trophies the golfers miraculously have hidden in their jackets. Woods and Palmer refuse, and some kicking and punching ensues.

After a quick fight sequence (in which Palmer proves particularly fearsome at his old age), it looks like Woods and Palmer have disposed of all the thugs. But as the two prepare to board their flight once again, another large man appears, seeking their trophies. Palmer gives the man all the punches he can, but the thug does not even budge.

Then, when all hope seems lost, fellow golfer Lee Trevino zip-lines in to save the day. A few quick slaps on the inner thigh are all he needs to bring the thug to his knees.

While "PGA Tour 14" is associated with Tiger Woods, the inclusions of Arnold Palmer and Lee Trevino in the commercial make sense as well. Per the EA Sports website, both the XBox and Playstation versions of the game allow players to golf on classic courses and face off against the all-time greats, including Palmer and Jack Nicklaus.

"I think it's a wonderful thing," Palmer told Yahoo Sports. "With modern media, what they've done, and how this game is something that people can really get into and play, it's going to really capture a lot of the imagination of the golfers, the young people, the older people."

As Golf Digest notes, this is not the first time the ad for the "PGA Tour" series has features fighting. Last year's commercial shows Tiger Woods and Shaquille O'Neal performing martial arts moves. Sadly, however, the two performed these kicks and punches in separate rooms rather than on actual thugs.

When Woods is not beating up thugs with Palmer, he has actually been playing well on the golf course as of late. As USA Today notes, Woods picked up his 77th PGA Tour victory on Monday at, ironically, the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The win means Woods is now the top-ranked golfer in the world for the first time in 29 months.

The victory is historic for Woods in other ways as well. Per Golf Channel, the win marked the 41st time in 43 tries that he won an event when holding the outright lead after three rounds. It is also his sixth win in his last 20 starts on the PGA Tour, and his 15th career victory in Florida.

You can watch the video of Woods and Palmer beating up thugs here, courtesy of the EA Sports YouTube page.
