EA Sports PGA Tour to Feature Authentic Representation of Women’s Golf


Electronic Arts and the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) have partnered to provide authentic representation of women’s golf to the release of EA Sports PGA Tour.

For the first time, all players will be able to tee-off as a female golfer at the truest representation of the Evian Resort Golf Club in Évian-les-Bains, France. Each athletes can be used to compete in multiple game modes — including challenges and The Amundi Evian Championship — from the beginning of the title.

According to Brian Carroll, the LPGA’s senior vice president of global media distribution:

EA SPORTS has done a great job in continuing to expand female representation in the various modes throughout the game and featuring women’s golf in an authentic and modern way.”[/testimonials]

The development team worked with a diverse group of golf professionals, including GOLFTV and Sky Sports broadcaster Iona Stephen.

Iona stated the following:

My goal in helping EA is to give women the satisfaction of playing a quality golf game while seeing themselves in a variety of ways that go beyond a handful of female character models.”[/testimonials]
