Featuring Tiger Woods as the cover athlete, “PGA TOUR 2K23” celebrates Woods’ legacy by introducing him as both a playable in-game pro and an executive director advising the game development team. 

“It’s not only great to be back on the cover of a video game, but the executive director role makes this a truly unique opportunity,” says Woods. “2K is the perfect partner for me and I am excited to continue impacting the game and culture of golf beyond my play on the PGA Tour.” 

Woods leads a roster of more than 14 male and female pros at launch, including Justin Thomas, Lexi Thompson, Tony Finau, Lydia Ko, Collin Morikawa, Will Zalatoris, Brooke Henderson and more. Players can step into the tee box as one of the pros in Exhibition, multiplayer and Divot Derby play, or go head-to-head with them in a battle to climb the leaderboard in PGA TOUR MyCAREER mode. In addition to the pros, the broadcast-style presentation and commentary team of Rich Beem and Luke Elvy also return, with the addition of English golf pro and broadcaster, Henni Koyack. 

“PGA TOUR 2K23” will include 20 licensed courses at launch. New additions include the South Course of Wilmington Country Club, The Renaissance Club, St. George’s Golf and Country Club and more. The Course Designer also returns, offering players the opportunity to build their dream courses and share them with a global online community.
