The MyPLAYER mode will let you build and customize your own player. A host of accessories from brands like Under Armour, Adidas, Callaway, Bridgestone and TaylorMade will be available. You’ll look fly on the fairway while chasing that elusive first championship, the greens have never looked better…
The 2K golf experience will feature 15 officially licensed PGA courses, including TPC Sawgrass.
The game is developed by HB Studios, creators of The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA TOUR. The team’s expertise is being fully utilized, especially when it comes to course accuracy and authenticity. Each official PGA course has been laser scanned to bring the fairways, greens, bunkers, trees, lakes and ponds to life. Based on early impressions, it will be difficult to tell the real-life courses apart from their virtual counterparts.

If you are looking to build your own dream course, you’re in luck. Players can trick out their green and fairways with thousands of custom options from sand traps to alligators. The game’s Course Designer lets you bring your wildest design fantasies to life.
