Maybe golf used to be your grandfather’s game, but after the conclusion of the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13 cover athlete contest, it’s clearer than ever that this sport has taken a turn for the young. When the EA SPORTS title launches next year, Tiger Woods will be sharing the cover with Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy – two pros under the age of 25.
Fowler and McIlroy won their places on the cover of Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13 after several weeks of voting on the game’s Facebook fan page, and the competition was fierce in both cases. Fowler beat out Bubba Watson by just a 4% margin, while McIlroy defeated Luke Donald by a similarly small 8%. Over 250,000 votes were cast in total.
“For someone that grew up playing Tiger Woods PGA TOUR […] this is a great moment in my career,” said Rickie Fowler. Rory McIlroy, who had previously appeared on the cover of Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 11, thanked his fans for winning him a second feature.
The official cover art for Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13 will be released this November.
