"The long awaited Augusta National Golf Club is now available in the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 12: The Masters demo on Xbox® 360 and PlayStation® 3! Approach the tee box of the famous closing hole during the tournament’s final round in your quest to become the Masters champion and don the Green Jacket. In the “Play Now” setting, live that **** moment and have the first opportunity to play Augusta National’s par-4 18th.

See the distinct Masters experience and hear the iconic voice of long-time Masters announcer, Jim Nantz, throughout the demo. Nantz sets the stage as Tiger Woods charges up the leaderboard in chase of his fifth Green Jacket. Take control of Tiger Woods on the final hole and attempt to be crowned Masters champion, while the all-new commentary team of Nantz, and the always entertaining David Feherty, call the action.

In “Road to the Masters” mode, play holes 1-5 at TPC San Antonio Oaks Course - an all-new course to the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR franchise. Complete the five holes in the demo and jumpstart your career in the full retail version* by bypassing the EA SPORTS™ Amateur Tour and proceeding straight to the Nationwide Tour.

The PlayStation 3 version of the demo will support the PlayStation Move controller to fully replicate an authentic golf swing. Looking for an even more immersive golf interaction? The demo can also be played in True View mode – a first-person vantage point that is new to the PlayStation 3 with the Move controller. Additional information about the Masters Tournament, the all-new career mode, Caddie/Course Mastery, new golfers and courses, and a host of other new features are detailed in the demo. Share the demo with friends to earn additional experience points (XP)."

Wow. I think this is going to be a lot of fun. Love the new features and gameplay. I think the new career mode is going to be interesting for a change. I wish there was more than one hole at Augusta but it is a nice tease. Can't wait for the full game.

Hopefully they add Kinect support next year!

Excellent demo. This game looks beautiful. The introduction of a caddy is a nice touch. The presentation has taken a step forward & I like the stat tracking throughout the round. I've always brought EA's golf game but I've never been this excited for the game before.

I played the demo and liked it but I have a question. Will the 360 get the extra courses that are available for the PS3 Collector's Edition at any time down the road? I want to buy the 360 version because I don't have much space left on my PS3.

Who do you use for a golfer in the demo? Is it only tiger or can you choose someone else?

Tiger is the only pro available. There is another fictitious player you can play with who has minimal attributes which I guess is there as an example of the level of player you will start of with in your career.

Thanks dazraz. I'm a ps3 owner and just watching the impressions come in since I'm at work and ps3 won't get the demo until later.

I believe the extra courses will be available to download on XBL.

Looking forward to playing the demo later tonight.

Yep...EA is FINALLY on their way with Tiger '12. Game looks amazing, but more importantly it appears that it will finally provide a true challenge. Put those greens on fast and watch what happens as you try to keep approaches from running down swales in the greens and putts from running 8' past (and to think this is isn't even on tour pro difficulty!)

Augusta looks incredible and the TPC San Antonio is stunning. I was a bit sketical about the caddie feature, but after trying it, I think it is a nice addition. I also like the fact that he "learns" the courses the more you play them so he can offer additional suggestions in the future. I just wish they allowed for True Aim/View in the X-Box 360 demo.

Additional Nice Touch - The USGA rules on demand by clicking the RB. VERY cool. I suggest you folks read some of them. Some of the rules are pretty obscure that they provide!

All in all, a VERY nice demo. Full game should be outstanding. I also own a PS3 and am eagerly awaiting the demo so that I can try out True View and the Move controller.

Not sure if it's US only or if I got lucky or something, but I'm downloading it right now on my PS3. I'm in Canada btw.

Finally a GREAT golf game! I can't wait for my PS3 Move to show up tomorrow so that I can download and try it out on the PS3.

The 360 demo is awesome.

Yep same here.

You can change the weather, pin placement and so forth. Rain was cool and I really liked being about to change the 2nd grass cut length.

Waiting for my PS3 demo to download so that I can compare.

LOL, updated OP again. :P

PS3 demo is great. Only issue I ran into is it only wanted to display in 720p.

This made the 360 demo look better.

Nice! Found PS3 demo by searching for it!

I'm anxious (as I'm sure some others are too) to hear of Move impressions specifically as I'm thinking of buying the Move just for this game, if it translates well!
