Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 Historic Edition Details

By Rebecca Smith, 3 years ago
Last month, EA Sports revealed the existence of a special Historic Edition for Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14 via the game's front cover. The cover had the words "Play Augusta National In 1934" emblazoned across a picture of the Augusta golf course, showing the course both in its 1934 form and its current day form. We knew that players would be able to tackle the 1934 course in gear and using equipment that was era-specific. We also knew that the total number of courses available in this edition would be 25, suggesting that the standard edition of the game would come with a lesser number of courses. Now I can expand on those details for you.

The Historic Edition will contain five bonus courses. Four of those bonus courses are Royal County Down, Royal Melbourne, Sheshan and TPC Blue Monster at Doral. The main bonus is, of course, the Augusta 1934 course with the layout experienced by golfers taking part in the Inaugural Augusta National Invitation Tournament. During this period of time, the golf course’s nines were reversed and the familiar contours and speeds of the greens were different. Take a look at the course as it was back then:
