EA Sports has been particularly attentive because for the past year, having been in full development of a new and highly innovative, online golf game.  The game has been in closed beta for eight months, with more than 75,000 people playing and participating.

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Online is a breakthrough experience - golfers will love the authentic feel of the course and gamers will be struck by the detail and smooth flow of the browser based experience.  EA Sports has spent considerable time developing and testing this game; and is proud of it; and are releasing it in open beta later this month.

This decision will no doubt create some attention and further speculation about Tiger Woods, and about his relationship with sponsors.  With that in mind, EA SPORTS has decided to continue with Tiger on the masthead of this game, and here is why.

EA Sports' relationship with Tiger has always been rooted in golf and didn’t form a relationship with him so that it could act as an arm’s length endorser. Far from it.  EA Sports chose to partner with Tiger in 1997 because it saw him as the world’s best, most talented and exciting golfer.  EA Sports struck that partnership with the assumption that he would remain near or at the top of his sport for years to come.

By his own admission, he’s made some mistakes off the course.  But regardless of what’s happening in his personal life, and regardless of his decision to take a personal leave from the sport, Tiger Woods is still one of the greatest athletes in history.  At EA SPORTS, we make authentic sports simulations. When we say “It’s in the Game”, it is not just a tag line but a statement about the quality and authenticity of the game experience. Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Online is truly representative of that rallying cry, and a game that all of us at EA SPORTS are proud to be delivering this month to sports fans around the globe.
