2K’s The Golf Club has evolved and, in keeping with their other sports franchises, the newest iteration will be known as PGA Tour 2K21.

PGA Tour pro Justin Thomas is the face of this year’s model, which will include 11 licensed pro players, as well as official courses and gear.

“Being chosen to be the first-ever cover athlete for the premiere PGA Tour 2K game is a tremendous honor,” said former world number one Thomas. “I’m excited to join the 2K family and challenge players everywhere on the digital links.”

Many golf games can be hard to get into for those new to the experience, but 2K are promising that this won’t be the case here. PGA Tour 2K21 has been designed for players of all skill levels, with assists such as real-time tutorials, tips and shot suggestions there for the taking. Meanwhile, those who are old hands will likely appreciate such features as ‘Pro Vision’, ‘Distance Control’, ‘Putt Preview’ and other innovations.

Golfing is generally a social pastime, and 2K have covered this with local and online multiplayer matches, along with ‘Onlien Societies’, which will allow players to invite their squad to the clubhouse and run full seasons and tournaments.

PGA Tour 2K21 is set to hit PS4, Xbox One and Switch on August 21. Pre-order from JB Hi-Fi here.
