EA’s announced that from October 3 through 23, fans can participate in a match play bracket-style voting campaign on www.facebook.com/tigerwoodspgatour and choose among 16 golfers to decide which two become cover stars alongside Tiger Woods in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13.
The voting is split between both the American and European golfers and will be decided amongst the following golfers.
On the American side of the bracket, the candidates include: · Ben Crane · Rickie Fowler · Jim Furyk · Dustin Johnson · Zach Johnson · Hunter Mahan · Rocco Mediate · Bubba Watson
On the European side of the bracket, the candidates include: · Paul Casey · Luke Donald · Ross Fisher · Graeme McDowell · Rory McIlroy · Edoardo Molinari · Ian Poulter · Justin Rose
Candidates were selected and seeded based on a combination of the Official World Golf Rankings, the FedExCup Rankings/Race to Dubai Rankings and “Fandom” rankings. Fandom rank is a combination of Twitter followers, Facebook fans and traffic to each golfer’s official website.
In addition some details have also be revealed regarding the next game, with EA’s press release stating that the Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament will again be included in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13, and in addition, there will be a special Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13: The Masters Collector’s Edition available as well. This collector’s edition will have its own unique box art and expanded features including all the courses and features available in the standard edition, plus five additional golf courses, Augusta National’s world-class Tournament Practice Facility, and much more.
Finally, both the standard and collector’s edition of the game will be the first in the series to support Microsoft’s Kinect controller.
