2K Sports

2K Sports' golf vertical has produced its latest golf video game, "PGA Tour 2K23", which can be played across multiple platforms and features Tiger Woods as its cover boy. After skipping 2022, 2K has linked Tiger's cover in 2023 to his pal, and the previous front man for this project, Justin Thomas, who graced the cover back in 2021. This year's edition has engendered a lot of excitement -- and a lot of different versions of the game -- as it hits shelves this fall.

Three-click swing: The three-click swing requires you to hold and release the A/X button (depending on your platform of choice) for power, and tap it twice to line up your swing path and club face angle. It's as simple as one, two, three.

Analog swing: If you're looking for a swing that mirrors a traditional real-life golf movement, the analog swing stick swing should be a good fit for you. To begin the motion, pull straight back on the analog stick and time your push forward as the power meter reaches the sweet spot for a silky smooth shot laced down the fairway.


This edition's courses include East Lake, TPC Twin Cities, TPC Summerlin, TPC Southwind, TPC Scottsdale, TPC San Antonio, TPC Louisiana, TPC Deere Run, Renaissance Club, St. George's, The Country Club, TPC Boston, Riviera Country Club, TPC Sawgrass and Quail Hollow.

Wasn't there once a popular Tiger Woods video game?

From 1999-2014, Tiger Woods licensed his name to the EA Sports version of the PGA Tour's game, but he has not been involved in video games since then until this recent resurgence with the 2K franchise. Woods' EA game reportedly generated more than $700 million from beginning to end.
