NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For seasoned golf pros and rookies alike, your tee time has finally arrived: PGA TOUR® 2K21 is available now for the PlayStation®4 system, the Xbox One family of devices, including the Xbox One X and Windows PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch™ system* and Stadia. Developed by HB Studios, the team behind The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR 2K21 is a real-deal golf simulation experience featuring officially licensed PGA TOUR pros, courses, gear and apparel brands.
PGA TOUR 2K21 is built around the belief that golf is for everyone. Whether you’re a pro who’s no stranger to the dance floor or a weekend warrior looking to try your luck for the first time, there’s something here for you. Rookies can take advantage of real-time tutorials, tips and shot suggestions, while veterans can master their games with advanced features, including Pro Vision, Distance Control, Shot Shaper and Putt Preview. Tee it up solo or hit the links with friends by playing local and online matches, including Alt-Shot, Stroke Play, Skins and 4-Player Scramble.

You can also create entry rules and requirements, as well as handicap and event settings, to challenge your crew.
The first step toward FedExCup glory is to create your own unique MyPLAYER by selecting from hundreds of customization options, including new licensed apparel and equipment from popular brands such as adidas, Polo Ralph Lauren, Malbon Golf, Callaway Golf, Bridgestone Golf, TaylorMade Golf and more. From there, load up your golf bag with the 14 clubs of your choice and take on the PGA TOUR Career Mode. You’ll start off on the Korn Ferry Tour and go on to compete in over 30 events spanning multiple stages of your career. You’ll also take on a roster of 12 PGA TOUR pros, headlined by PGA TOUR 2K21 cover athlete Justin Thomas.
