As the first game to incorporate this new system, EA Sports PGA Tour will be a unique experience for fans of golf looking to get accurate ratings reflected on their game. Here’s more details on the ShotLink system via press release.
PGA TOUR golfers will be authentically replicated in EA SPORTS PGA TOUR like never before with ShotLink® powered by CDW, the PGA TOUR’s proprietary real-time scoring system.

TrackMan measurement solution’s data is also being incorporated into the game to add an additional layer of authenticity by allowing EA’s game designers to perfect gameplay and numerous stats such as club tuning.
Besides this new feature, the FedExCup Playoffs will also be included in EA Sports PGA Tour — joining the other four major championships of golf in the game: Masters Tournament, PGA Championship, U.S. Open Championship, and The Open. Additionally, golfers can build up their own legendary careers while experiencing how it is to be a golf pro and go through these tournaments!
