SO LONG TIGER, HELLO RORY!
Although we already knew that EA Sports was dumping Tiger Woods as the face of the brand’s PGA Tour franchises following a year’s hiatus for the series, the announcement that the brand has now been passed over to Rory McIlroy is one that we weren’t expecting. The young Northern Irishman has shot right to the top of the golfing world over the past half a decade or so, so it’s not like he’s not a recognizable face or anything... but following Tiger was always going to be a tricky job. For someone like McIlroy, though, young, fresh faced and bursting with talent, we’ve got no doubt he’ll take it all in his stride - and in truth this probably doesn’t even register on the list of important things he’s got planned for 2015! Rory McIlroy PGA Tour from EA Sports is set to hit stores globally on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this coming June.
