Player-created female athletes aren’t anything new to EA Sports’ Tiger Woods PGA Tour games. But, while those avatars have been able to compete in the sport’s most storied tournaments, there hasn’t been any virtual representation of the LPGA Tour in the golf games. That all changes this year, with the inclusion of a new LPGA career mode in Tiger Woods ’14.

In a press release issued today touting the ability to play as PGA legends like Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, EA also said that an all-new mode will focus on the women’s pro golf circuit. Female golfers can play on either the PGA or LPGA Tour and the Kraft Nabisco Championship — one of the LPGA Tour’s major championships — appears in the game on its real world course at the Mission Hills Country Club. However, male avatars won’t be able to play in the LPGA Career Mode.

  • The real question is: If I play as Tiger, will I get to bang every single one of them? Or any women at all? Doesn’t seem like much of a ‘sim’ if they’re taking artistic licence with Tiger and his ‘ways’ by making him ‘family friendly’.

  • But in all seriousness, it’s about damned time they stop marginalising female players. Makes no difference if it’s this or Halo, or something else, they’ve been getting the sh*t end of the gaming stick for a long time now and it’s been taking too long to change.
