Tiger Woods may be back on top of the golf world, but he hasn't put all controversy to rest, thanks to his "winning takes care of everything" Nike ad.

The new ad congratulates the golf legend's return to the No. 1 ranking with a phrase often used by Tiger himself ... one that's viewed differently now.

Tiger Woods Winning

The main takeaway: Some feel the ad's swagger is offensive given the 2009 cheating scandal that ruined his marriage and took a toll on his golf career.

Many Americans blasted the ad on Facebook and Twitter as being too dismissive of the many extramarital affairs Woods committed four years ago.

Among the choice comments Nike has received on FB:

In golf, Phil Mickelson's short game is pretty much unrivaled.

In this "flop shot" demonstration, he proves this once again.

The four-time major winner demonstrated his famous trick shot with Roger Cleveland, chief club designer at Callaway Golf, standing just three feet away!

After describing how to play a successful flop shot, Mickelson barely (but effortlessly) clears Cleveland's head from an impossibly short distance:

It's not only something he does to rack up YouTube views. The shot allows Phil to arc the ball significantly to land the ball softly on firm PGA surfaces.

We didn't think it would be possible for another golf video to top Sergio Garcia hitting out of a tree in less than one week's time, but that's Lefty for you.

Tiger Woods is officially back on top of the golf world. And Lindsey Vonn.

The Olympic gold medalist skier couldn't be happier about both.

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn

As Tiger regained the #1 ranking in the world for the first time since 2010 with a win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, his new girlfriend rejoiced on Twitter.

"Number 1 !!!!!!!!!!!!!" the 28-year-old blond beauty posted.

Tiger's feat comes a week after the 37-year-old star announced via Facebook pics and a rare, personal statement that he is in fact dating Lindsey Vonn.

With marriage equality and the Supreme Court dominating news today, rumors are swirling that a current NFL player is considering coming out of the closet, and soon.

If a report from Mike Freeman of CBS Sports is to be believed, it would be a controversial and virtually unprecedented move in the world of male-dominated pro sports.

NFL, Rainbow

Freeman does not name the player, but says if he does come out, he wants to keep playing. He says he’s basing this on interviews with current and former players.

Freeman writes, “I’m told this player believes the time is now for someone to take this step - despite the remarks from [49ers defensive back] Chris Culliver."

A man who interviewed disgraced football coach Jerry Sandusky in prison has given his second victim an ultimatum that arguably amounts to extortion:

Give me an exclusive interview, or I'll reveal your identity.

Sandusky, Interviewer

John Ziegler, who interviewed Sandusky for a documentary he hopes will clear Joe Paterno's name, said Monday that he planned to "out" victim #2.

Sandusky was convicted of raping the victim in a Penn State shower back in 2001, following testimony from former PSU assistant football coach Mike McQueary.

"Winning takes care of everything." - Tiger Woods

It certainly doesn't hurt. Three years and four months since the infamous car crash shattered his image (and to a degree his golf game), he is #1 again.

Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational Monday (amazingly for the eighth time in his career), claiming the mantle of the world's top-ranked golfer.

A new Nike ad celebrates the 37-year-old's feat:

Tiger Woods Winning

While reclaiming his throne doesn't erase the last few years, there's no doubt his game is in top form, and time does have a way of healing wounds.

The fallible, non-invincible Tiger may be more likable, too, ironically.

Having been knocked down so epically, and without a major championship since 2009, the best player ever somehow has a comeback kid feel to him.

He's also dating Lindsey Vonn. So, take that haters.

Sergio Garcia pulled off one of the great golf highlights this weekend.

After hitting his ball into a tree on the 10th hole of Florida's Bay Hill Country Club Sunday, he climbed up, found it, and successfully hit it back into play!

Watch the Spaniard's amazing one-handed shot below:

Perhaps even more amazingly, Garcia double-bogeyed the hole after the fact, and withdrew from the field. So this was the highlight of his day for sure.

Four days ago, very few people knew Florida Gulf Coast University even existed.

Now, thanks to a pair of bracket-busting basketball wins, it's a household name.

FGCU became the first-ever 15th-seeded squad to reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament, beating Georgetown and San Diego State.

Not just eking out nail-biters in typical Cinderella fashion, either.

Fans who watched the fast-breaking, high-flying Eagles saw them TAKING IT to the opposition, outplaying them on substance and with style.

LeBron James may have one more NBA championship ring than Kevin Durant.

But these superstars now have the same number of half court celebrations with fans who sank money-making shots.

Durant got into the act last night after an Oklahoma City Thunder supporter swished his attempt and won $20,000.

Durant's mauling of the fan was a bit delayed, however, and even kind of orchestrated, as the man actually waved the NBA's leading scorer over to help him celebrate.

Compare KD's tackle below with the reaction of pure joy on LeBron's face after a similar incident:
