Golfing megastar Tiger Woods has signed an exclusive partnership deal with 2K for his name and likeness to feature in their future golf games.

This is great news for fans of the PGA Tour 2K franchise, and also likely for Tiger’s bank balance with all those hospital bills after his horrific car accident recently.

2K have also announced that they’ve brought HB Studios, the developers of The Golf Club series and PGA Tour 2K21, into their fold.

Says Tiger of the deal: “I’m looking forward to making my return to the video game landscape, and with 2K and HB Studios, I’ve found the right partners to make it happen. I’m honoured to take part in this opportunity and look forward to sharing my expertise and insights as we build the future of golf video games together.”

Meanwhile, a new mode has hit PGA 2K21 via a free update. Divot Derby is a new multiplayer experience where up to 20 players compete in a shoot-out style comp, with single-elimination knockouts. The entire group tees off at the same time, racing to land on the green and sink the putt. The first golfer to make it to the ninth and final hole wins!
