Tiger Woods cover for PGA Tour Golf
It has been announced by Electronic Arts that it will be extending its contract with hailed golf pro, Tiger Woods. Including voice work and motion-capturing details, Woods has signed a five-year contract extension with the PGA Tour Golf franchise.
"I am thrilled to continue my relationship and involvement with EA Sports, the definitive sports brand in the video game industry," Woods said of his involvement with the PGA Tour Golf games. "It is always important that I align myself with the best brands in each product category. Just as I'm always pushing myself to improve my golf game, Electronic Arts continues to push the envelope in the video game space and produce the best titles. For me, I grew up playing video games, and there's nothing better than partnering with EA Sports. It is great to know there are kids playing this game who are learning about the game of golf for the first time and seeing how fun and energized the sport truly is.''
With the addition of Tiger Woods to the game in the past, EA has nearly doubled its game-sales revenue with him on the cover. Expect PGA Tour Golf to be released sometime early 2002 to the PS2.
