Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14
EA Sports and Tiger Woods End 15 Year Partnership

View author's profile

EA Sports has announced that future PGA Tour Games will not continue the series’ partnership with the golfer Tiger Woods.

"EA SPORTS and Tiger Woods have made a mutual decision to end our partnership, which includes Tiger's named PGA TOUR golf game," said Daryl Holt, vice president and general manager of golf for EA Sports. 

"We’ve always been big fans of Tiger and we wish him continued success in all his future endeavors.

"Moving forward, we will continue to work with the PGA TOUR exclusively to create groundbreaking golfing titles and our partnership remains strong.

"EA Sports is committed to creating a new golf experience that leverages the best technologies across EA to deliver a stunning and immersive game for mobile and next generation consoles."

Woods has lent his name to the golf franchise since 1998. However, since the former world number one’s marital infidelities were revealed in 2009, both the golfer and the series has been on the slide.

Indeed, the writing was on the wall in 2011, when EA Sports removed Tiger Woods’ image from the front cover and replaced it with a picture of a flag. Which was quite funny.

Edit: Additionally, EA Sports has released a comparison shot, showing how the next-gen version of PGA Tour compares to current gen. It's purdy.

I kind of feel that people and their private lives are private and it shouldn't effect business relationships unless they mix business and private lives. right of this shit I mean it's only been almost 5 years

Next week EA will announce a Tiger Woods Sims game. No golf, loads of pixelated sex.

it got boring because E.A. milked the crap out of the series by having another game every year instead of making them every 2/3 years.


the 09 version was the best and only got worse after that imo.

Welcome to EA GOLF Putting Challenge. I am Tiger. Now chose a club... You have chosen a 3 wood. May I suggest a putter? 3 wood. Now enter the force of your swing, I suggest feather touch. You have entered power drive, now push X - A - Y to swing. (pushes buttons, ball lands) ball is in parking lot. Would you like to play again... You have selected No.

Did EA find Tiger's raunchy texts to Activision?

I suppose this basically just saves however much money they were paying Tiger Woods to use his name in the title.

Do these titles really need a player's name on the front? People still buy FIFA every year, I'm sure they'd buy PGA or NFL games without a name attached. I don't buy Madden because it has his name on it. I suppose Madden is such a brand now that I hear Madden, I think of the game - not the guy. Still, I'm sure I'd get used to NFL 2014 etc too.

I'm kind of partial to TW 07.It was a glitchy mess, but LOADS of fun(no pun intended).

Is TW 14 worth a buy?I may pick it up soon.

So when will the new PGA golf game be out for next gen. I do remember reading an article about them skipping a year which is 2015 which I was gutted about cos I love these games. Looking forward to next gen version looks so good.

@ #15

I agree. I'd rather the sports titles were just kept simple. I think NFL 14 sounds better than Madden 14. I don't see the point in wasting the money by paying that person millions of dollars either. The league names will always be as recognizable or more on their own without branding it around somebody. I look forward to the series going back to being called PGA or something similar.

Good example ( I think) by EA to keep him on the cover even after he screwed all those women while he was married. Like they say sex sells.
