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:
