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.

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:

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.

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.

"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:

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.

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn went public with their romance to foil the paparazzi, according to the golfer, while she is not freaked out by his sordid past.

Ever since their simultaneous Facebook posts and photos confirmed what we suspected - Lindsey Vonn dating Tiger Woods - many have wondered:

Tiger Woods, Lindsey Vonn

Why would the Olympic skiing gold medalist go for a man whose epic, marriage-ending sex scandal made him the poster child for whom not to date?

Apparently, the answer is not all that complicated.

"Tiger makes Lindsey happy," says one of her friends. "She isn't concerned what others think. She trusts her instincts. She's comfortable with the relationship."

Monday, we officially learned from the source herself that Lindsey Vonn is dating Tiger Woods. They seem very happy together and that's a good thing.

But it's pretty funny to think back to his 2009 scandal ... and how Vonn joked about his supposed sex addiction and how she wanted to parody him on SNL.

The jokes made headlines, both because of their content and their timing, as Vonn was in the middle of her star turn at the 2010 Olympics when Tiger apologized.

For cheating on Elin Nordegren with Rachel Uchitel, Jaimee Grubbs, Joslyn James, Devon James, Holly Sampson ... and many, many others.

So what did Lindsey Vonn say when she watched his infamous mea culpa?

Devon James says Tiger Woods is likely to cheat on Lindsey Vonn just as he did on Elin Nordegren … with her, back in the sexy, scandalous day.

Once a cheater, always a cheater?

Dev told TMZ today, "You know when the pics came out of Tiger and his new girlfriend ... somewhere, 15 other girls were going, 'Huh? I thought I was his GF!'"

The former hooker/porn star/mistress is referring to the photos of Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods that the skier posted, confirming the long-rumored love connection.

"I thought he would have picked a woman who was more petite and not someone who is more muscular and has a bigger head than his," Devon James added.

"But maybe his taste has changed since Elin and 27 mistresses."

Well, that's just uncalled for, but regarding her main point ...

Do you think Tiger Woods is a changed man?

Thanks to yesterday's surprising Facebook "coming out" of sorts, the gossip world now knows for certain that Lindsey Vonn is dating Tiger Woods. Awesome.

He's also made strides with Elin Nordegren of late.

The former spouses both came together to cheer on their 5-year-old daughter Sam at her youth soccer game yesterday, according to reports.

Lindsey, 28, stayed in the car at the Jupiter, Fla., venue as Tiger, 37, and Elin, 33, sat at opposite sides of the bleachers, trying not to attract attention.

It's the second time in a month they came together for a sporting event, however, and they've even been seen talking to and smiling at each other.

Crazy, we know. After the events of 2009-10, it's impressive.

Time heals all wounds, we suppose, as do new romances. Elin is reportedly dating Chris Cline, though we don't expect any Facebook confirmation of that.

And they all lived happily ever after? We can only hope.

"Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over the past couple of months and it has made me very happy," Lindsey added.

In going public, Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn even released cheesy photos of themselves, looking like newspaper engagements section material.

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren were back together Saturday ... if only for their two young kids, and a local youth sports organization in Jupiter, Fla.

The golf great arrived to the event first with his son and daughter, Charlie and Sam, then crossed paths with Elin Nordegren after she arrived an hour later.

TMZ posted photos of the couple chatting together for over half an hour and appearing like they genuinely enjoyed each other's company. Weird!

The one-time couple then left together in Elin's car.

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn's low-key relationship is not just the real deal, it's going well, apparently. They're spending time with each other's families!

It's been that way from the start for the golf legend and skiing champion; Vonn's brother gave ski lessons to Woods' daughter Sam, 5, and son Charlie, 4.

Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods, who have not commented on the romance, met at a charity event in April 2012, but things didn't get serious until the fall.

"Their friendship slowly turned into a relationship," an insider said.
