Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14: The Masters Historic Edition to Feature Augusta National's Original 1934 Layout
Five Additional Courses Available in The Masters Historic Edition
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Electronic Arts Inc., (NASDAQ: EA) announced today that fans will be
able to step back in time with Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14: The Masters
Historic Edition. For the first time ever, users will experience
Augusta National Golf Club as it was when the course played host to the
very first Masters Tournament — what was known in 1934 as the Inaugural
Augusta National Invitation 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.
"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," Mike
Taramykin, Vice President of Tiger Woods PGA TOUR said. "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."
Game play will place players in a 1934 environment, which takes into
account everything from the clothing to the equipment. On the golf
course, users will discover a new way to enjoy the timeless layout, and
as it would have played when the first Tournament field competed in the
Club's inaugural invitational. This includes everything from the golf
course's nines being reversed to its original green contours and speeds.
In addition to this unique feature, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14: The
Masters Historic Edition will also include:
A complete copy of Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14
A walk through of the original 1934 layout of Augusta National
The present-day Augusta National Golf Club course
