Tiger Woods Not Featured in New PGA Tour Video Game
The complete roster of PGA Tour stars featured in the newest golf video game, PGA Tour 2K21, has been released and Tiger Woods is not in it, according to 2K roster.
Instead, gamers can play as and compete against Justin Thomas, Cameron Champ, Bryson DeChambeau, Matt Kuchar, Kevin Kisner, Gary Woodland, Billy Horschel, Ian Poulter, Tony Finau, Jim Furyk, Sergio Garcia and Patrick Cantlay.
Woods was the face of the previous PGA Tour video game franchise under EA Sports, and still remains the primary needle mover on the PGA Tour today.
While one argument for leaving Woods out could be an EA Sports vs 2K thing, both Furyk and Poulter were featured in those EA games.
Perhaps, Woods did not want to be in the game, that is a possibility as well.
It is unknown if he was asked.
Woods has 82 career PGA tour victories, tied for the most all time, and has won 15 majors, second most all time.
2K’s other sports games, namely NBA 2K features legendary players and teams, such as the Michael Jordan Bulls, Larry Bird’s Celtics etc…
But, one of the greatest golfers of all time is left out of its new PGA Tour game.
