Nike Golf Spot Seems More About Horses Than Golf

So, the horse from The Ring is in this new Nike commercial that's supposedly about golf balls, but it's kind of hard to tell since very little in the ad implies golf. I mean, the horse isn't wearing a tam or argyle pants or anything. And even if it were, anything that leaves divots that big wouldn't be welcome on a golf course for very long. Even the text in this spot is awkward since concepts like power and control could just as easily apply to clubs. So, unless any golfers out there can make sense of this, I'm gonna go ahead and say that Nike landed in the rough with this one.
