The game will be built on the EA Frostbite engine and leveraging next-gen technology, promises stunning fidelity, breathtaking immersive environments, and approachable, dynamic gameplay.

With the 2021 PGA Championship teeing off this week at The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) and the PGA of America today shared details of their partnership to authentically deliver the excitement, both on and off the course, of the PGA Championship in EA Sports PGA Tour.

EA Sports PGA Tour will be the exclusive home of all four of golf’s major championships: The Masters Tournament, PGA Championship, U.S. Open Championship and The Open Championship. Golf fans can also compete at the biggest PGA TOUR events, as they strive to build a legendary career.

EA Sports is partnering with the PGA of America to allow players to virtually experience the PGA Championship, and only in EA Sports PGA Tour will players be able to immerse themselves in the fanfare of the major championship. They will be able to hoist the historic Wanamaker Trophy, revel in the Champion’s Ceremony, play as or against past PGA Champions and compete on brilliant virtual renderings of the 2021 PGA Championship host course at Kiawah Island; and the 2022 host course at Southern Hills Country Club.

“The PGA of America is committed to growing interest and participation in golf, and we’re excited to partner with EA SPORTS to support the goal of reaching golf’s next generation,” said PGA President Jim Richerson. “The EA Sports team is working diligently with the PGA to authentically represent the PGA Championship in the game, and we’re thrilled that the game will shine a light on our PGA Professionals, who are some of the most important ambassadors for the sport.”

The PGA of America has a membership of nearly 28,000 PGA Professionals across the country who work to help further the love of the game through coaching, training and more. In recognition of one of the PGA Championship’s most unique aspects, EA Sports PGA Tour will feature on the leaderboard members of the “Team of 20” PGA Club Professionals that earn a spot in the PGA Championship each year when the game launches.

The game will also include tutorials and coaching challenges, designed in collaboration with the PGA Education and Player Development Departments, that teach skills valuable not only in-game, but also in the real world.

“It’s always nice to play against the best Major Championship field ‘in the game.’ I’m happy that EA Sports will feature so many of the traditions the PGA Championship is best known for, including highlighting members of the ‘Team of 20’ PGA Professionals,” said two-time PGA Champion Brooks Koepka.
