There’s no doubt about it, professional golfer Tiger Woods has had a pretty rough start to 2010. The news media has had a field day with his marital problems, causing the athlete to lose numerous sponsors. One bit of news that should make Tiger happy is that EA has announced that the next iteration of it’s PGA Tour series, due out in June, will still use the Tiger Woods brand.

EA Sports president Peter Moore stated: “By his own admission, he’s made some mistakes off the course. But regardless of what’s happening in his personal life, and regardless of his decision to take a personal leave from the sport, Tiger Woods is still one of the greatest athletes in history.”

Maybe it’s just me, but I expect some controversy over EA’s decision to keep the Tiger Woods brand. Personally I take Peter Moore’s side. Tiger Woods may have screwed up off the course, but on it, the man is pure magic. On the other hand, I could see a small hand full of people who would refuse to purchase a game solely on the fact that it uses the Tiger Woods name. What do you guys think? Will there be a significant reaction to EA choosing to continue the Tiger Woods brand after all the controversy surrounding his personal life?

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 is slated to arrive on the Xbox 360, Wii, PS3, and iPhone this June. PC gamers looking to hit the links will be pleased to hear that EA has just launched the open beta for the web-based Tiger Woods PGA Tour Online. To check it out, head over to the official website.

  1. I will boycott this game unless they change the name of the “Game Face” feature to “O Face”.

  2. I will be purchasing this game day one. PGA Tour 10 helped my golf game so much that I’d be stupid not to get the next one. Nothing beats a nice spring day, 18 holes and a 30 rack of Milwaukee’s Best sitting in the cooler right next to you as you drive the cart around, getting progressively worse (at both golf and driving).

    As for his “off-the-green antics,” all I can say Tiger’s got some balls. His really hot, former Au pair wife has gotten too old, so he needed to get some of that younger ‘tang. How can you blame him?

  3. Nice to see that EA is sticking with Tiger. Give it a year and everyone will forget about his personal life and EA will be happy they stuck with the Tiger Woods brand name.

      The iphone has to be an exteotinn of the video ipod that lets the world wide web interaction happen. Infact the synergy is greater than that. I am intersted to look up Baha’u'llah on wikipdia dot org or Baha’i on youtube? dot com. Well done apple for making life evermore interesting.

    Before my 14th birthday, I hadn’t owned or opetraed a music device, cellular phone, or internet of those sorts. I received an iPhone 1G, and it was a? HUGE transition. I had to first get used to using a cellular phone, then music, then internet, then the touch screen, then finally the entire iPhone. I still have the same iPhone 1G from my 14th BDay, and it looks brand new.

      Recently, I have been working on kpeeing my lower body less active. You’ll see me out on the practice range repeating what Hank is doing to promote more of a draw, as opposed to a fade. It helps me bring the club down and through from the inside, which makes it easier for me get the hands out in front at impact. For whatever reason, my lower body has always been too active in my swing. I would cast the club early, and add loft to the club through impact, which would result in a high fade.
