We haven’t seen a new PGA TOUR game since Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14 back in 2013. Since then, new consoles have come out and licensing deals have expired. So now, EA Tiburon is back after some time off with a new cover star and new name: Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR. The golf game found here is strong; however, the young golfer’s name and credibility do little to elevate what is a no doubt disappointing first entry on this generation of consoles.
EA today announced Rory McIlroy as the cover athlete and namesake of its golf franchise, officially making him the face of EA SPORTS™ Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR®, releasing in June 2015. McIlroy, a 4-time Major champion and top-ranked golfer in the world, represents a new generation of players for a new generation of consoles.
