Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14: The Masters Historic Edition to Feature Augusta National’s Original 1934 Layout
Five Additional Courses Available in The Masters Historic Edition
Electronic Arts Inc., (NASDAQ: EA) announced today that fans will be able to step back in time with Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14: The Masters Historic Edition (view all the new Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14 screenshots, right here). For the first time ever, users will experience Augusta National Golf Club as it was when the course played host to the very first Masters Tournament – what was known in 1934 as the Inaugural Augusta National Invitation Tournament.
The development of this exclusive feature was researched with meticulous detail in an effort to re-create the original 1931 design of world-renowned golf course architect Dr. Alister MacKenzie and legendary golfer Bobby Jones.
“From the very beginning, our relationship with the Masters Tournament has been built around our ability to bring a unique and authentic experience to a new and younger demographic of potential golfers,” Mike Taramykin, Vice President of Tiger Woods PGA TOUR said. “From unprecedented access to the Augusta National archives, to in-depth discussions with golf historians – and even our own internal research into the sport in the 1930s – The Masters Historic Edition is the next step in bringing gamers an exciting and distinctive glimpse into the game of golf.”
Game play will place players in a 1934 environment, which takes into account everything from the clothing to the equipment. On the golf course, users will discover a new way to enjoy the timeless layout, and as it would have played when the first Tournament field competed in the Club’s inaugural invitational. This includes everything from the golf course’s nines being reversed to its original green contours and speeds.
In addition to this unique feature, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14: The Masters Historic Edition will also include:
- A complete copy of Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14
- A walk through of the original 1934 layout of Augusta National
- The present-day Augusta National Golf Club course
- Augusta National’s world-class Tournament Practice Facility
- Augusta National’s Par 3 course
- Green Jacket ceremony
- Augusta, the Song, as heard during the Masters Tournament television broadcast
