It’s not the worst advert in the world, but it seems to have annoyed someone so much that they decided it was necessary to start a petition to ban it from the airwaves.
It’s not a bad commercial, but it is set to one of the most average songs from the dull Irish band ‘The Script.’ The main criticism of the advert is that it has been around too long and people want something different.
Tron Carter from the blog No Laying Up started the petition:

For the last two years the golf community has been subjected to an endless onslaught of the Omega Watches Rory McIlroy “Standing in the Hall of Fame” commercial. Regardless of the event, tour or network, this commercial plays during every commercial break. The spot has ruined historic moments, a half dozen major championships, and countless psyches. And yet, we continue to be bombarded incessantly every time we turn on the television to watch golf. It’s time to take a stand. Let’s boycott Omega Watches SA, and it’s parent company Swatch, until this commercial is pulled off the air and we, the golf community, are afforded sanity and closure.
