They've got Augusta National and the Masters, and now the 150th Open and its host venue are coming to EA Sports PGA Tour for its 2022 return

One of the best things about the EA Sports PGA Tour video games was the ability to play the finest golf courses in the world.

The impossibly popular series will return next year and, with Augusta National already on board, the publishers have now announced that the Home of Golf will also be included.

The Old Course at St Andrews, which will host the historic 150th Open Championship in 2022, will be getting the next-gen makeover.

EA Sports PGA Tour will be the 24th iteration of the EA Sports franchise of golf games. The first 24 were released between 1990 and 2014, with Tiger Woods putting his name to 16 editions between 1999 and 2013 and Rory McIlroy in 2015.

The 2022 edition – the first in seven years – will be created with EA’s Frostbite engine, which will render every hump and hollow of the most famous golf course on the planet, as well as the Royal and Ancient clubhouse and Swilcan Bridge in stunning next-gen visuals.

The game, which will be released next spring, will offer players the chance to live the life of a PGA Tour pro, including all four majors, as well as the Players Championship and FedEx Cup Play-offs.
