Nike's shares fell 3.9 per cent on Tuesday after the announcement.

"I think Nike is trying to get out ahead of it and trying to do something special and I think they've done that", Woods said at the BMW Championship.

After his father critiqued Nike for its campaign with ex-NFL star Colin Kaepernick on Twitter, Donald Trump Jr. made a decision to take to Instagram to do the same.

Kaepernick has been without a club since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March of past year.

On Monday, Nike released a promotional image for their new Kaepernick-inspired campaign which featured a black and white portrait of the player superimposed with the slogan "Believe in something". He is now taking a case against National Football League owners over alleged collusion not to sign him due to his social activism.

The ad aired during the first commercial break in the third quarter of the Eagles-Falcons game on Thursday night.

The advert, titled "Dream Crazy", has Kaepernick narrating over images and footage of various athletes with inspirational stories, including National Basketball Association icon LeBron James, tennis star Serena Williams and Kenyan runner Eliud Kipchoge. "If we have a contract, we'll honor it, but we strongly support law enforcement and strongly support our military and veterans who died to protect our freedoms and if the company really believes what Colin Kaepernick believes, it's going to be hard for us to keep doing business with them".
