Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 takes golf fans inside-the-ropes to experience the drama and emotion of tournament golf. In addition, the U.S. Open, a USGA championship, and the USGA’s Rules of Golf will be available in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 for the first time in franchise history.
As you hear the roar of the crowd from the next hole over, can you handle the mounting pressure while you stand over your tournament-winning putt? Expanded crowds surround every hole; adding to the tension and excitement of each shot. A first for the franchise, real-time weather will be reflected on every course, ensuring the in-game experience matches that of the current weather conditions. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 will also feature a television broadcast style presentation, which include instantaneous updates and a new announcer team of ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt and the Golf Channel’s Kelly Tilghman.
EA Sports Live Tournaments consists of three categories: daily, weekly and Play the Pros tournaments. Gamers can jump into a new tournament each day, play 18 holes and see if their round stays atop of the leaderboard, or play in a weekly tournament and post scores from four rounds that span over an entire week of play. Play the Pros is an extension of the daily and weekly tournament systems, but instead of a gamer-submitted leaderboard, players will be posting their scores against the real life scores of PGA Tour golfers during an actual professional event. EA Sports Live Tournaments is available on Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii versions of the game.

Veteran player Mediate battled Woods nearly shot-for-shot in last year’s historical playoff round of the U.S. Open. Both players are featured in all versions of the game alongside a robust roster of pro golfers such as, Luke Donald, Jim Furyk, Natalie Gulbis, Rory McIlroy, Vijay Singh, just to name a few.
