Take down Golf's Greatest Legends

EA SPORTS announced today that fans will be able to battle nine of golf's greatest legends in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 14. The new game mode, Legends of the Majors, lets players travel back through time and relive golf's history by matching up against the sport’s greatest legends, including Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Seve Ballesteros, Ben Hogan, Bobby Jones, Gary Player, Sam Snead, Lee Trevino and Tiger Woods. Players can work their way through various eras in order to earn their own seat at the table of golf's all-time greats. 

Hoisting the Claret Jug, breaking Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 major victories and slipping on the coveted Green Jacket are now all within a player’s reach. For the first time in franchise history, players in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 have a chance to go for the Grand Slam by reliving events from all four majors, the Masters Tournament, U.S. Open, The Open Championship and the PGA Championship.

“This year’s edition of the game delivers a collection of innovative golf features that provide players an unprecedented chance to rewrite the record books,” said Mike Taramykin, Vice President of Tiger Woods PGA TOUR. “Players can earn legendary status by conquering the greatest legends of all time or challenge their friends on some of the world’s most renowned courses. Without question, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14 is the best edition the franchise has produced in years.”
