EA Sports PGA Tour

The PGA Tour is a long-running golf video game series produced by Electronic Arts (EA). It started in 1990 and features courses on the PGA Tour and famous courses hosting major events.

In 1998, EA partnered with golfer Tiger Woods and the event was named the Tiger Woods PGA Tour. They release a new game every year. While most of the games are produced by EA Sports, some are developed by other companies, such as the first game, Tiger Woods 99 PGA Tour Golf.

These games brought new things to golf video games, such as the now common three-strike swing method. Back in 1995, a GamePro reviewer stated that the PGA Series stood out because players had complete control over their shots and played on top-notch courses. Despite this, it often competes with other golf games such as the Jack Nicklaus series, Links series, Microsoft Golf, and Pro Golf.

Between 1999 and 2013, EA’s game partnership with Tiger Woods generated nearly $771 million. But in 2013, EA ended its partnership with Woods and replaced him with another top golfer, Rory McIlroy. The game, called Rory McIlroy PGA Tour, launched in 2015 and McIlroy became the new face of the series.

The new game brings some fresh stuff like “Pure Strike” gameplay, which deals with different parts of hitting a golf ball. It also connects to ShotLink (the PGA Tour’s statistical tool) and TrackMan. Players can play as real Tour pros like Cameron Champ and Tony Finau, as well as Nelly Korda and Jordan Spieth ) et al.

One cool thing about this game is that it has 30 courses right from the start. One of them is Augusta National Golf Club, which returns to golf after playing in the Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14.

EA Sports PGA Tour Development

The new EA Sports PGA Tour game was first talked about in March 2021. Just like the previous game, this game also uses the Frostbite engine.

Initially, it was supposed to launch in early 2022, around the same time as the 2022 Masters. But for reasons they didn’t tell us, the launch was delayed a few times. Finally, it hit the shelves on April 7, 2023. This day is compared with the date of the second round of the Masters that year, which was originally scheduled to be March 24.
