Golf fans will soon be able to virtually play as some of the most iconic players in the sport, thanks to the upcoming PGA Tour 2K23 game.
Tiger Woods has put his name on the upcoming video game, marking his first virtual involvement since his split from EA Sports in 2013. Additionally, Woods has extra responsibilities. Aside from being cover athlete; he is also an executive director for the game.
In an attempt to make 2K23 as authentic as possible, there will be 20 real-life, authentic courses for players to compete on. Per Dexerto, 2K will also add four more courses after the game’s launch.
Real-life players will provide further authenticity to the PGA Tour 2K23 experience. As a result, several pros have made themselves playable options on the game.
The pro players confirmed for PGA Tour 2K23
Gamepur reports that at least 14 golfers will be available in the game from launch day. In addition, 2K will add more players in the future via free DLC updates – meaning that the PGA Tour 2K23 playable roster will increase throughout the game.
However, as it stands, just nine players are currently known. As the cover athlete, Tiger Woods is obviously the headline-grabber. Then, three of the top 10-ranked golfers in the world make the cut, too.
These are Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa, and Will Zalatoris. Joining them is fellow US star, Tony Finau.
