The inclusion of the Masters is incredibly exciting, and it’s the first time that The Masters will appear in a golf game since Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 back in 2011, and it will take pride of place on the cover of the game.

“EA Sports employed first of its kind aerial scanning to collect millions of data points, previously inaccessible in golf games, to recreate the unparalleled beauty of Augusta National authentically in the game,” EA said in a statement.
As you’d probably expect from a high-profile golf game, EA Sports PGA Tour also give players the option to play as – or against – some of the world’s most famous professional golfers.
One pro who won’t be appearing in the game, though, is Tiger Woods. He appeared as the face of EA Sports’ famous golfing series for over a decade until 2013, but recently signed an exclusive deal with 2K Games for their own PGA Tour franchise.
It’s been confirmed that the game will be available to play “next-generation platforms”, but the specifics as to which have not yet been revealed in detail.
