For the first time since 1998, EA Sports' PGA Tour video game will be released without one prominent name attached to the title. On the same day, Rory McIlroy triumphed over Tiger Woods at Mission Hills Golf Club in China for the second consecutive year, EA Sports VP and GM Daryl Holt announced a mutual decision to cut the cord with Woods.
According to USA Sports:
EA SPORTS and Tiger Woods have also made a mutual decision to end our partnership, which includes Tiger’s named PGA TOUR golf game. We’ve always been big fans of Tiger and we wish him continued success in all his future endeavors.
Moving forward, we will continue to work with the PGA TOUR exclusively to create groundbreaking golfing titles and our partnership remains strong.
