2K Sports has been nurturing its golf bag impressively over the past few years, but PGA 2K21 might be the best drive from the publsiher yet, and maybe the best golf game of the past number of years, as we're learning in our upcoming review. In the meantime though, if you're more keen to just tee off without the commentary, the game is available now.
Here's the official score card:
PGA TOUR 2K21 is built around the belief that golf is for everyone. Whether you’re a pro who’s no stranger to the dance floor or a weekend warrior looking to try your luck for the first time, there’s something here for you. Rookies can take advantage of real-time tutorials, tips and shot suggestions, while veterans can master their games with advanced features, including Pro Vision, Distance Control, Shot Shaper and Putt Preview. Tee it up solo or hit the links with friends by playing local and online matches, including Alt-Shot, Stroke Play, Skins and 4-Player Scramble. Taking the social experience to the next level, command your Clubhouse with Online Societies, where you can run full seasons and tournaments while earning bragging rights on the course. You can also create entry rules and requirements, as well as handicap and event settings, to challenge your crew.
The first step toward FedExCup glory is to create your own unique MyPLAYER by selecting from hundreds of customization options, including new licensed apparel and equipment from popular brands such as adidas, Polo Ralph Lauren, Malbon Golf, Callaway Golf, Bridgestone Golf, TaylorMade Golf and more. From there, load up your golf bag with the 14 clubs of your choice and take on the PGA TOUR Career Mode. You’ll start off on the Korn Ferry Tour and go on to compete in over 30 events spanning multiple stages of your career. You’ll also take on a roster of 12 PGA TOUR pros, headlined by PGA TOUR 2K21 cover athlete Justin Thomas.
The PGA TOUR pro roster also includes:
Bryson DeChambeau, a.k.a. “The Scientist”;
Matt Kuchar, a.k.a. “Kuch”;
Kevin Kisner, a.k.a. “Kiz”
Gary Woodland, a.k.a. “G-Dub”;
Billy Horschel, a.k.a. “Billy Ho”;
Ian Poulter, a.k.a. “The Postman”;
Tony Finau, a.k.a. “Big Tone”;
Jim Furyk, a.k.a. “Mr. 58”;
The PGA TOUR Career Mode is brought to life by a broadcast-style presentation with state-of-the-art graphics, dynamic cutscenes and a seamless replay system, all anchored by the play-by-play commentary of veteran golf and sports broadcaster Luke Elvy and three-time PGA TOUR winner turned golf analyst Rich Beem. Elvy and Beem provide analysis and insights, while also applauding your best shots and poking fun at your missteps.
