The PGA Tour series of golf games has been around since the days of the Amiga and MegaDrive. Now Tiger Woods has been tied into the Electronic Arts license, are we getting two games for the price of one? Unfortunately not. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2001 is simply a new release from the PGA series with an endoresement from Tiger as an extra incentive to purchase.

As with previous incarnations this game features all the courses from the real PGA Tour, including TPC at Sugarloaf and TPC at River Highlands, taking the tally of actual courses to an impressive seventeen. EA has also kindly thrown in an extra disc called Course architect, which will allow you to design and build fully customised golf courses to your own exact specifications. You can even build a model of your own local course and get some sneaky practice in. All the pros from the circuit are included with the addition of new boys Stuart Appleby and Jim Furyk.

As well as the standard PGA Tour, there are eleven game modes to choose from, the most interesting and innovative of which is Internet Competition. This allows you to play complete matches on-line, against anyone from anywhere in the world.

The gameplay follows the time honoured tradition of performing well timed button pressing. The first press relating to the power of the stroke and the second relating to the accuracy of ball strike. Tiger has been digitised and some of his gesticulations and expressions are displayed at opportune moments.
