U.S. Amateur Championship & Other Amateur Events Coming to EA Sports PGA TOUR Career Mode

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.

  1. I'm not expecting much for the US Amateur Championship, it will probably look like in TW 13 and 14. This year, it's at Oakmont in August and this course was already in Rory on Frosbite.

    Would imagine the same...but it's better, IMO, than just jumping right into the Korn Ferry Tour - which is what Rory and PGA 2K21 both did.
    I hope all the courses from Rory get in - plus the ones they've announced already.
    Here's the list of known EA courses in game:
    Augusta National Golf Club
    Pebble Beach Golf Links
    Southern Hills Country Club
    Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s Ocean Course
    TPC Sawgrass
    Torrey Pines
    The Country Club
    They still have to announce the British Open Rota courses (I would assume at least St. Andrews and Royal St. George's). They will also likely have East Lake for the Tour Championship and the FedExCup Playoff hosts, too.

    HI, new here so idk if this Is the correct way to reply but anyways assuming St. Andrews is in.... That puts us at 8 real world courses ALREADY confirmed to be in. We are still 9 months away and already know a ton about the course list which makes me think a lot more are coming(Some that were in Rory 15 obviously). If you remember Rory 15 only launched with 8 real courses. I have very high hopes for pga 22.

    Maybe they start you off in the US Am in career and you have to win that.

    That would follow what they did in TW 14. You'd choose the US Amateur, the British Amateur, or the Asia-Pacific Amateur. If you won it, you got an invite to Augusta for The Masters in your first year, which was pretty cool. Otherwise, you had to work your way up through the Korn Ferry Tour (or Nationwide Tour as it was back then) and up to the PGA Tour. They had the world rankings back then, too, which 2K21 is sorely missing.
