EA Sports and the USGA have announced that EA Sports PGA Tour will include the US Open Championship. This means that the 2021 event at Torrey Pines will be included as well as The Country Club in Brookline, MA. The Country Club is the host of the 2022 US Open Championship and this will be the first time it has ever appeared in a golf game. The US Open Championship brings together the best professional and amateur golfers in the world.
EA Sports PGA Tour will also see the return of amateur events to the career mode. This includes the US Amateur Championship. To properly replicate these courses, EA will be using cutting-edge aerial scans to provide true accuracy and realism for this game, which is slated to launch in Spring 2022. EA Sports PGA Tour is the exclusive home of all four major golf championships: the Masters Tournament, PGA Championship, US Open Championship, and FedEx Cup Playoffs.
“We are delighted to be back in the game with EA SPORTS,” said Navin Singh, USGA Chief Commercial Officer. “With the inclusion of so many USGA championship host sites, including the U.S. Amateur Championship, career mode in the game will really allow players to grow their skills authentically. We look forward to players building their game up to the challenges of playing at this year’s U.S. Open host, Torrey Pines and for the first time ever, next year’s host site, The Country Club in Brookline.”
“Winning the 2015 U.S. Amateur Championship was a highlight of my early career that helped propel my game forward, ultimately winning the 2020 U.S. Open Championship, which felt like years of hard work coming to fruition,” said Bryson DeChambeau. “I’m a big video game fan, and EA SPORTS bringing not only the U.S Open but also amateur golf events, is very exciting, especially given how important they are to golfers growing their career.”
