For the 4th year in a row, Tiger Woods won’t be the only golfer featured on the cover of his titled game. EA Sports announced this morning that World Golf Hall of Famer Seve Ballesteros and the number one ranked Rory McIlroy will join Tiger on the European cover of Tiger Woods: PGA Tour 14.
This marks the first time in the franchise’s history that three golfers have appeared on the cover together. With his scandal a few years back plus decline in performance, could they be trying to phase Woods out of the cover? Probably not right now, but it’s a reasonable question. EA Sports phased out Madden in early 2000 (pictured below), and it didn’t affect sales at all.
So I ask the question: would you still buy Tiger Woods: PGA Tour games if Tiger wasn’t on the cover? Let me know your thoughts.
