With his golf game on hold, Tiger Woods got down to some other business: Filming an ad for his upcoming video game.

The golfer, who backed out of The Players Championship Sunday after suffering a neck injury, completed a commercial shoot for EA Sports’ Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 Tuesday in Orlando, a rep for the video game company confirms to PEOPLE.

Arriving to the set on time, Woods shot the ad with fellow PGA Tour athletes Ian Pulter, Rickie Fowler and Edoardo Molinari and “was upbeat throughout the day-long shoot,” says an onlooker. “You could tell he was really enjoying the creative focus of the commercial.”

The EA Sports ad comes just one month after a Nike commercial, featuring Woods getting scolded by his late father, Earl, stirred up controversy.
