Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13 Augusta Preview

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
http://www.trueachievements.com/Tiger-Woods-PGA-TOUR-13....htm will see the return of the world famous Augusta National Golf Club. Although the main course will be included in all editions of the game, the club's world-class Tournament Practice Facility and special Par 3 course will be some of the content included exclusively in the Collector's Edition. EA has provided an overview of Augusta's Par 3 course to try and tempt you to upgrade to the Collector's Edition.
