TW PGA Tour 09 was my favorite but I really enjoy Road to the Masters too.  Hoping to see a little more dynamic crowds and a some better commentary in this edition.

So what do you guys think... Will we see McIlroy on the cover of PGA Tour 2015 or will the Tiger Woods franchise continue on?  Just doesn't have the same catch to it... Rory McIlroy PGA Tour 15...   Doesn't really roll off the tongue.

I think they will keep it Tiger Woods PGA. Our favorite golfers are still showcased on the cover so really the name shouldnt have to change. Tiger has made a big enough imprint on the golf game to own EA sports as far as golf goes. He gets my vote! As far as commentating... I HATE the commentators on every game especially 13. I guess i just play the game too much and am sick of hearing things like... "What was he thinking?" and "That was a not so stellar attempt"

did anyone have any luck using the kinect sensor on the '13 edition? I tried it on a demo and hated it.

I don't know if they'll ever change it. Look at the Madden series. I doubt most buyers today even know who John Madden was, and he's not even involved in the game anymore.

I have really enjoyed this game over the years, but it's disappointing how they try to make you purchase courses throughout the game. $60 isnt enough?

With that said, I will be buying this on the day it releases.

2014 announced and it's not even 2013. This is getting ridiculous. :P Just call it 2013 again and get back on the right schedule.

And now they've released the cover for the special edition ($70 rather than $60), which seems like it lets you play Augusta National pre-changes. I'll be interested to see if the special edition is available for 360 and PS3. The 2012 special edition was PS3-only, then it was released for both consoles last year, but on the EA Sports website it only shows the special edition on a 360 game case.

They released MLB 06 in 2005, then when Sony changed developers from 989 Studios to SCE, they released MLB 06: The Show in 2006. That aligned it with the MVP Baseball and 2K baseball games, which released 2006 games in 2006, 2007 games in 2007, etc.

Any thoughts on good improvements here?

Looking to buy my first golf video game.  I've read that golf video games haven't had much worthwhile improvements in the last few years; why pay $60 for the new one when last year's version for $5 plays just the same?

I have 13 and Road To The Masters or 12 for Xbox360.  I really enjoy them, especially 13.  I don't know much about 14 but know a few players returning and some new.  Tiger Woods, Adam Scott, Rory McIlroy, Luke Donald, Rickie Fowler, Graeme McDowell are just a few of the big returning names and new to the game are Bud Cauley and Ryo Ishikawa.

I got an advance copy to write a review for the main site, which will go up later in the week. The rules they sent me for the timing are kind of strict. Any sort of preview I could give you could be surmised from material on EA's website anyway. I will say that while the improvements aren't huge, it is my favorite of the Tiger Woods games in a while.

Well I hope...hope to the gods...that they have made the swing a little more authentic (ie. making backspin dependent on the swing/where you strike the ball/if you have prayed to your god) instead of having to thump a backspin button!! I was pleasantly surprised when I played the demo to see that the ball did in fact checkup and spin back a bit...but not sure if that is a "fixed" feature OR if its simulating true backspin?

Secondly, be nice if the course was more alive! While I loved the last version playing on a dead empty course killed any immersion in the game.

Regards

The crowds in these games are really awful, to the point where I start thinking they should be scrapped to save the processing power for something worthwhile...like maybe trees that don't react like they're theatre drapes. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan. The way they all move in sync...I started to imagine them as appendages of the course, through which the course overmind can express itself.

    • I don't think that's what most people mean by playing ready golf.  If you and a slow-walking player both hit in the fairway and you hit farther, I agree it's rude to just walk quickly out, set up, and hit your ball.  Except for the oldest, slowest players, that player is almost certainly going to be trying to start a pre-shot routine while you're finishing yours.  And even if not, the point of ready golf is to make sure – assuming you're not stuck behind other groups – you play close to as fast as the slowest walking player in your group would solo, not to finish holes in sequence, fastest player to slowest player. For example, when playing with slow older players, both of us in the fairway, I might walk past the older players ball if there's a good tree line to walk along or the like, and post up near my ball's level while waiting for the slower player to hit, then have a quicker walk to my ball, with the hope being that I can go through my pre-shot and hit my shot in not much more time than it takes the slower player to watch his shot, put his club back, and walk up to where my ball is. Around the green I liberally play my ball if I'm ready well before anyone else even if I'm not farthest from the hole.  And like I said above, I think first ready tees off unless someone has birdied or better.  But between the tee and near green, I'm only playing out of turn when another player in my group has hit a really crappy shot and is off in the woods/grass looking for a ball, I'm not on or near that player's line to the hole/chip out, and I can easily go ahead and play my ball before the other player will be (even really that close to) ready to hit.

    • Crazy, I stayed at Orange Lake Resort back in 2001.  I had unlimited miniature golf for the entire week, I think I played 54 rounds or something during my week stay. I love their full golf attire, shoes included, I wore a bathing suit when I played.
    • Yup. Players are authorized to ride a cart during their round(s) only when there are shuttles (as mentioned in the article) or to be taken back to re-hit a ball under stroke and distance penalties. Basically, you have to walk the golf course once, and that includes any side trips like going to the restroom, going to get a drink from a neighboring hole's concessions area, etc.  
    • Seems like the kind of thing that a young kid would start doing when trying to swing really fast. Seems like it would be very hard to learn how to do this and keep your swing in control. My guess is that Justin Thomas started doing this as a kid, and it's just part of his swing now.
