EA Sports PGA TOUR has announced Amateur events, including the U.S. Amateur Championship, will be coming to EA Sports PGA TOUR career mode.
We are delighted to be back in the game with EA SPORTS,” said Navin Singh, USGA Chief Commercial Officer. “With the inclusion of so many USGA championship host sites, including the U.S. Amateur Championship, career mode in the game will really allow players to grow their skills authentically. We look forward to players building their game up to the challenges of playing at this year’s U.S. Open host, Torrey Pines and for the first time ever, next year’s host site, The Country Club in Brookline.
The team also revealed plans to authentically represent the U.S. Open Championship experience in the game. Not only will virtual golfers be able to play at Torrey Pines, host of the 2021 U.S. Open Championship, players will also be able to play at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts, host of the 2022 U.S. Open for the first time in a video game.
EA announced in April that EA Sports PGA TOUR would feature all four majors. The Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club, PGA Championship, U.S. Open Championship, and the Open Championship will be exclusive to the game.
Last month the team announced an exclusive partnership with the PGA of America to allow players to virtually experience hoisting the historic Wanamaker Trophy, revel in the Champion’s Ceremony, play as or against past PGA Champions and compete on virtual renderings of the 2021 PGA Championship host course at Kiawah Island; and the 2022 host course at Southern Hills Country Club.
EA Sports PGA TOUR is scheduled to release in spring 2022 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
