Tiger Woods is out after damaging his brand. Flaming golf balls shot over battleships in the Pacific are in. Take that, Woods.
EA Sports PGA Tour (Spring 2015) is going to use the Frostbite 3 engine, which will give its fully rendered environments "no load times between holes.
There are also "extreme fantasy courses" along with traditional, boring, stuffy golf courses, like the aforementioned war zone. The flaming golf ball reminded me of Triple Play. We need more arcade fun in sports games.
