EA Removes Tiger Woods from Cover of Tiger Woods Video Game

Tiger Woods Video Game Distancing Itself From Tiger Woods: “Last year, Electronic Arts made the golfing great share the cover of his bestselling game with Northern Irish rookie Rory McIlroy for the first time ever. This year, following the controversy away from the green and lackluster play on it, Woods has been dropped from the cover of the March 29th release of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii. Woods has been replaced with a shot of the iconic yellow flag at Augusta National Golf Club.” Being booted off the cover of your own video game in favor of a flag must be a bit humbling, but it would be far worse if he were being replaced by Dorf. If you suddenly have the thirst to play a golf video game, today is your lucky day. Try not to be intimidated by the complexity of the game. [Hollywood Reporter; photo via Getty]
