EA has revealed the details for Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14: The Masters Historic Edition -- a special edition version of the latest game in EA's popular golf franchise. For the first time ever, fans can experience the Inaugural August National Invitation, the course that played host to the very first Masters Tournament.
"The development of this exclusive feature was researched with meticulous detail in an effort to re-create the original 1931 design of world-renowned golf course architect Dr. Alister MacKenzie and legendary golfer Bobby Jones," EA said. Entering this mode will send you back to 1931, filled with clothing and equipment true to the time period. You'll be able to play through the course's nine holes as it would have played when the first Tournament field competed in the Club's inaugural invitational -- with its original green contours and speeds true to form.
Mike Taramykin, Vice President of Tiger Woods PGA Tour added: "From the very beginning, our relationship with the Masters Tournament has been built around our ability to bring a unique and authentic experience to a new and younger demographic of potential golfers. From unprecedented access to the Augusta National archives, to in-depth discussions with golf historians — and even our own internal research into the sport in the 1930s — The Masters Historic Edition is the next step in bringing gamers an exciting and distinctive glimpse into the game of golf."
