Electronic Arts ¬†announced today that Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09, a nominee for best sports game at this year’s E3, is available in retail stores today. The critically acclaimed Tiger Woods PGA Tour franchise, which appeals to experienced and novice gamers alike, will feature personalized gameplay via Tiger Woods’ swing coach, Hank Haney. In addition, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 All-Play, winner of IGN’s Best Wii Sports Game Award at E3, features new graphics and user interface while also incorporating interactive and social mini-games.”Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 brings simulation golf to life through its graphically enhanced courses and several all-new features for the Xbox 360 and PS 3 versions of the game,” said Executive Producer Mike Taramykin. “In Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 All-Play we were able to create a sociable yet competitive experience with the new Golf Party Mode, while also evening the playing field with an all-new Wii-specific controller system.”

An all-new addition to this year’s game is Performance Coach featuring Haney. He will assist gamers as they hit the links and try to advance their career to win the FedExCup. Following each round, Haney will deliver customized feedback on a player’s performance. This feedback system allows all gamers, rookies or pros, to compete and enjoy the game at any level. In Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09, a player’s skill level is dynamic, constantly adjusting throughout the round just as it would during a real afternoon of golf.

Also new to the game is Club Tuner, which gives gamers the opportunity to calibrate their clubs to fit their personal tendencies and preferences. Players can test and customize their driver, fairway woods, irons and wedges. The Club Tuner allows gamers the ability to create a bag of clubs that fit specific course conditions or needs, but strategy will come into play as gamers must weigh the risks of club performance versus ease of use.

The online experience for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 has been significantly enhanced, from enhancements and all-new features within EA Sports GamerNet to an all-new game engine powering simultaneous play within the game. New to GamerNet, which is an interactive gaming hub that hosts user-created gameplay online, are Instant Challenges, seamless integration into gameplay and all-new daily leaderboards. The new online engine in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 gives as many as four players the ability to play each hole at the same time, allowing players to swing when they are ready and experience a round of golf even faster and more competitive than ever before.

Developed in Orlando, Fla., by EA Tiburon, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 will be available on August 26 on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system, the PlayStation2 and  PlayStation3 computer entertainment systems and the PSP (PlayStation Portable) system. Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 09 All-Play is available specifically for Wii.
