Tiger Woods is one of several notable athletes included in Nike's recent "Equality" ad campaign aimed at ending racial, gender and sexual discrimination.

While Woods left Nike from an equipment standpoint last year when the company stopped producing clubs, he remains an endorser of their footwear and apparel.

"Opportunity should not discriminate. The ball should bounce the same for everyone.  Worth should outshine color. If we can be equals here, we can be equals everywhere."
