This new PGA Tour game is the first entry into the popular franchise since 2013 and will be available exclusively for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. This is also the first PGA Tour game since 1999 that doesn’t feature the fallen golfing hero, Tiger Woods.This year Rory McIlroy is the cover star, with the game featuring other golfing greats like 2015 Masters Champion, Jordan Spieth, six-time PGA Tour winner, Hunter Mahan, 2015 Players Champion, Rickie Fowler and many more. With the game running on DICE’s Frostbite engine you can expect zero loading times between holes. DICE’s Frostbite engine will also ensure that you have the most realistic experience playing on famous golf courses like Wolf Creek in Las Vegas and TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach.
