GOLF LEGEND ARNOLD PALMER MAKES FIRST-EVER APPEARANCE ON THE COVER OF TIGER WOODS PGA TOUR 14
New PGA TOUR and LPGA Golfers Also Make Their Debut
In Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Franchise
November 15, 2012 – In a historic celebration of the world of golf, Arnold Palmer, “the King,” makes his first appearance alongside Tiger Woods on the cover of Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14. Palmer’s professional career spanned five decades and the box art image is taken from his most prolific years during the 1960’s. Among his many accomplishments, he recorded 92 professional victories during his career with 62 occurring on the PGA TOUR. Included in the total are seven major championships including four Masters, one U.S. Open and two Open Championships. Palmer also has a history with the video game franchise as he was included in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 05 and 06.
Woods has a rich history with the golf icon as he has won the Arnold Palmer Invitational seven times, most recently in 2012 and he has 74 PGA TOUR career wins, second on the all-time list.
Joining legendary golfers, Tiger Woods and Arnold Palmer, as playable characters are a quartet of young rising stars from the PGA TOUR and LPGA. Making their debut in the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR franchise, Keegan Bradley, Bud Cauley, Stacy Lewis and Lexi Thompson will round out a roster of more than 25 professional golfers set to tee off in the upcoming title.
Bradley has won three PGA TOUR events, most notably the 2011 PGA Championship and is one of only three golfers to win in his major debut. He was also named the 2011 PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year and was a member of the 2012 US Ryder Cup team.
Cauley just completed his second professional season and is considered one of the up-and-coming American golfers on the PGA TOUR. The former University of Alabama golfer was a member of the 2009 U.S. Walker Cup team and had six top-10 finishes this season.
The LPGA’s #1 ranked American golfer, and recently named Player of the Year, Lewis, has five professional career wins including a major as her first official professional victory, came at the 2011 Kraft Nabisco Championship. With four LPGA victories this season, 2012 has been a breakout season for Lewis.
In 2011, Thompson won her first LPGA tournament at the Navistar LPGA Classic at the age of 16. She was also the youngest player to qualify for the U.S. Women’s Open as a 12-year old.
