SportsCenter commercials are always good, especially those featuring golfers -- like this one where Scott Van Pelt marvels as Arnold Palmer makes himself an "Arnold Palmer" in the ESPN cafeteria. Or, this one, where Tiger Woods has a huge gallery following him around through the cubicles of the ESPN offices in Bristol.

Well, add the one you see below to the list:

Bubba Watson, winner of the 2012 Masters, stars in the commercial along with the Stanford University mascot -- the Stanford Tree.

Watson, accompanied by a caddie, tries to figure out ways he can get around the Stanford Tree in the narrow space between rows of cubicles -- reminiscent of the way Watson calculated his way around trees in the sudden-death playoff when he won the Masters.

All in all, good commercial.
