I can’t wait to give you the opportunity to win, “Cam Webber said. , Executive Vice President and General Manager of EA Sports. EA promises that the details of the EA Sports PGA Tour will be revealed in the coming weeks and the release date will be announced in the coming months. The PGA Tour features well-known professional golfers, and Tiger Woods is not one of them. 2K recently signed a multi-year exclusive contract with Woods.
