Tiger Woods Swings onto Store Shelves

Electronic Arts announced today that Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06, featuring new dual analog swing and putting mechanics, has shipped to retailers nationwide and is available for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, Nintendo GameCube and PC under the EA Sports brand. A version for the PlayStation Portable will ship on September 26.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06 offers all new gameplay challenges with the introduction of the dual analog swing. Using the left analog stick to execute the swing, and the right analog stick, called the “Shape Stick,” to focus on the impact point allows players to help shape their shots with spin and trajectory. This new control also extends to putting where players will need to read the green and then use finesse and precision to make the putt.

The new Rivals singleplayer mode allows players to feel the pressure of competing against Tiger Woods for the title of #1 Golfer of All Time. Players will create their own ultra-detailed character and then follow Tiger Woods’ path back through time to best both Tiger’s accomplishments and the accomplishments of the greatest golfers of each era. Legends such as Old Tom Morris, Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus stand in the way as players attempt to become the unanimous choice as #1 golfer of all time.
