In EA Sports PGA Tour, golf fans will be able to build their virtual career and experience the sights, sounds, and thrills of the PGA TOUR including The Players Championship, FedExCup Playoffs and more unforgettable events.

EA Sports PGA Tour will also feature many of the world’s most famous courses, where fans will have the option to play against and as some of the biggest names in professional golf.

During its longstanding relationship with the PGA Tour, EA Sports has entertained tens of millions of players around the world with its golf franchise. Now, through a new, long-term deal, signed this year with the PGA Tour, EA Sports will expand its history in golf with the next-gen PGA Tour experience.

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.


Electronic Arts and the United States Golf Association (USGA) revealed plans to authentically represent the U.S. Open Championship experience in EA Sports PGA Tour.

The U.S. Open is America’s championship – the toughest major in golf, played on America’s greatest courses including Torrey Pines, host of the 2021 U.S. Open Championship and The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts, host of the 2022 U.S. Open.

Both courses will be featured in EA SPORTS PGA TOUR, with The Country Club in Brookline making its first appearance in a video game ever when the game launches in Spring 2022.

The U.S. Open Championship brings together both the best professional and amateur golfers in the world to test their skills competing for the career defining prestige. In addition to the U.S. Open, EA SPORTS PGA TOUR will see the return of amateur events to career mode, including the U.S. Amateur Championship. To realistically render one of America’s most legendary courses for the first time, EA SPORTS is implementing cutting-edge aerial scanning to capture The Country Club and its unique history as one of the five founding member clubs of the USGA and the site of Francis Quimet’s triumphant 1913 victory which propelled golf into the mainstream.

“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.”

“Winning the 2015 U.S. Amateur Championship was a highlight of my early career that helped propel my game forward, ultimately winning the 2020 U.S. Open Championship, which felt like years of hard work coming to fruition,” said Bryson DeChambeau. “I’m a big video game fan, and EA SPORTS bringing not only the U.S Open but also amateur golf events is very exciting, especially given how important they are to golfers growing their career.”

EA Sports PGA Tour: Road to the Masters is the exclusive home of the historic Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club, one of the most prestigious golf events in the world, with some of the most recognizable traditions in sports.

In addition to being the home of the Masters Tournament, EA Sports PGA Tour is the only video game where fans can compete at all four of golf’s major championships: the Masters Tournament, PGA Championship, U.S. Open Championship, and The Open Championship. Golf fans can live out a legendary career as they authentically compete at The Players Championship, FedExCup Playoffs, and strive to complete a career grand slam, while experiencing the unique atmosphere and venues of each tournament. More information about each major championship will be revealed this summer.

In close collaboration with Augusta National, EA Sports has worked meticulously to capture the course and traditions of the Masters. Inspired by Augusta National’s own mission of innovation and improvement, EA Sports employed first of its kind aerial scanning to collect millions of data points, previously inaccessible in golf games, to recreate the unparalleled beauty of Augusta National authentically in the game. At launch, the game’s exciting 'Road to the Masters' content will deliver players the prestige of competing in the Masters Tournament, plus additional experiences exclusive to Augusta National.

EA Sports PGA Tour is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC in Spring 2022.
