Ever wanted to go toe-to-toe against some of the world’s best golfers? Now you can in the all-new Tour Pro Mode in EA SPORTS Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR.

Before hitting the course, players can customize their golfer’s appearance and select a bio. This creates a little backstory about your created player – as either a Prodigy, Collegiate or Instructor.

START YOUR CAREER

Tour Pro Mode begins in the last tournament on the Web.com Tour. Place high enough at TPC Sawgrass to graduate to the PGA TOUR and embark on a 15-year career

New this year is a feature called Quick Rounds, which allows players to complete a four-round tournament in the same amount of time as one 18-hole round.

Players can progress deeper in Career Mode in half the time, without compromising Skill Level or XP.


EARNING XP

Players earn XP throughout Tour Pro Mode, which increases golfer level and unlocks various gear, equipment, attribute upgrades and attribute bonuses.

Earn XP by finishing holes, making birdies, hitting shots using draw/fade, hitting greens and fairways in regulation, close approaches, etc.

ATTRIBUTE BONUSES

Attribute Bonuses are a new way to set your golfer’s strengths and weaknesses. Players select one Attribute Bonus (Balanced, Power, Precision, Finesse) and have the ability to unlock space for up to three more. With everything unlocked, there are thousands of combinations to choose from.

Skills can be set up to match a play style, or edited to give players the best chance on a particular course.

Distance bonuses may come in handy on a long, wide-open course, while accuracy and shot-shaping abilities will be beneficial on a tighter, more technical track.


CAREER PROGRESS

Shows current standings or skill level, and what unlockables are available at the next level.
