By rbalke Apr 1, 2013
We were beyond excited when we learned we had secured the LPGA Tour license for Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14. For the first time ever, you now have a chance to take your female golfer out on the LPGA Tour and compete in real-life LPGA events against some of the top players in the game, including Stacy Lewis and Lexi Thompson. Now, let’s take a look into starting your very own LPGA Tour career!
When creating your female golfer, you can choose if you would like to play the LPGA Tour or PGA TOUR.
Similar to how the LPGA Tour works in real life, you will have to start out as an amateur and perform well in the Symetra Tour in order to earn your LPGA Tour card.
The LPGA Tour features 22 events that you can dominate on your way to a legendary career. One of these events is the Kraft Nabisco Championship, a major championship at the all-new Mission Hills course! You’ll be competing against top female golfers in beautiful Rancho Mirage, CA in order to earn the coveted Nabisco Dinah Shore Trophy. We also have the U.S. Women’s Open Championship in the mode, another exciting major on the LPGA slate.
Glance over to see how you match up against the LPGA's best, including Stacy Lewis, Paula Creamer, Suzann Pettersen, Natalie Gulbis and Lexi Thompson. Watch out for their names on the leaderboard as you fight your way to the top. In Quick Tournaments, you can even jump right into the action at the Kraft Nabisco Championship, and play out a scenario featuring these professional female golfers.
To add to the experience of being an LPGA Tour golfer, we have also incorporated the Rolex Rankings. These rankings are used to determine the best of the best on the LPGA Tour. Climb to the top of the Rolex Rankings leaderboard to add the Rolex Ranking Player of the Year trophy to your trophy room collection.
Along the way, you can also track your progress to see how your achievements stack up against the greats of female golf. These women have truly made their mark on the LPGA Tour and now it is your turn. Complete all of these goals to unlock apparel for your golfer and receive your LPGA Tour card.
As you can see, there is no shortage of exciting features in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14, which is NOW AVAILABLE on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Looking for more information about this year’s game? Contact us on Twitter or on Facebook.
We hope you have fun out there on the tour. See you at Mission Hills!
