EA Sports PGA Tour added another feather to its cap with the FedExCup. This competition isn’t just returning to the game but also bringing all its three Playoffs events. Players can look forward to taking on the FedExCup Playoffs in career mode as well as select challenges.

Before the FedExCup, the game already had in its portfolio The Masters at Augusta National, the PGA Championship at Southern Hills, the US Open Championship, The Open Championship, and the Evian Championship.


Going back to the FedExCup, the three events that are playable at launch are the same ones happening at the Playoffs in 2022. So, prepare to see these host courses:

  • TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee
  • Wilmington Country Club in Wilmington, Delaware
  • East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia.

Like with the real-life PGA Tour season, players get the chance to earn FedExCup points when playing the Career Mode. Players need to keep track of these since only the top golfers are invited to the FedExCup.

Proving another layer of depth for the game is the return of the Korn Ferry Tour. This is actually the PGA Tour’s developmental tour and should play an important role in becoming an expert golfer in the game.

In a statement, The PGA Tour’s Len Brown revealed that they are excited that fans can now experience the FedExCup Playoffs. He went on to say that the game ensures a genuine and realistic experience as players get points for the chance to be in the FedEXCup.

Meanwhile, Abraham Ancer shared that getting his first PGA Tour win at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational was a result of years of training and hard work. He added that he is excited for players to experience the same feeling he had when he won.

Shotlink Real-Time Data

Making the game experience better is the use of the real-time scoring system known as ShotLink. In fact, the upcoming EA Sports PGA Tour is the first golf video to make use of the ShotLink data. This is a data capture technology where players can view and compare digital information from their favorite PGA Tour athletes.

What are your thoughts on this? Does this make the game even more exciting?
