HB Studios and 2K have announced PGA Tour 2K23 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One & Xbox Series X|S. Launching later this year, PGA Tour 2K23 will be available in three different editions, including the special Tiger Woods Edition which sees the golf star back on the cover of a PGA video game.
In addition to being the cover star and playable in the game, Woods is also the Executive Director for PGA Tour 2K23 which sees him advising the development team.
“It’s not only great to be back on the cover of a video game, but the Executive Director role makes this a truly unique opportunity,” said Tiger Woods. “2K is the perfect partner for me and I am excited to continue impacting the game and culture of golf beyond my play on the PGA Tour.”

In addition to Tiger Woods, players will have access to a number of female and male pros at launch, with more promised to be added as “free post-launch DLC.” Pros available at launch include Justin Thomas, Lexi Thompson, Tony Finau, Lydia Ko, Collin Morikawa, Will Zalatoris, and Brooke Henderson. The pros will be available in Exhibition, multiplayer and Divot Derby play while competing with players in MyCAREER mode. Anyone who pre-orders any version of the Standard Edition will receive the Michael Jordan Bonus Pack which includes MJ as a playable golfer.
At launch, PGA Tour 2K23 will include 20 licensed with new locations such as “South Course of Wilmington Country Club, The Renaissance Club and St. George’s Golf and Country Club.” If you prefer something a little different, the Course Designer is back so you can create the course of your dreams or find something somebody has made.
In line with other 2K franchises, MyPLAYER allows players to create and customise their avatars with the best golf gear and apparel. Nike Golf, TaylorMade, Bridgestone Golf, Callaway Golf, Footjoy, PUMA and COBRA are just some of the brands available in PGA Tour 2K23.
Alongside the standard, classic golf modes available, PGA Tour 2K23 also introduces some casual ways to play. Topgolf “offers a unique experience emulating the popular golf entertainment phenomenon, where players can aim for targets and try to earn the highest score.” Training modes also help players come to grips with the gameplay and learn how to be the best on the course.
Finally, online features return in PGA Tour 2K23 with Online Societies. “Online Societies encourage players to squad up with friends for custom tournaments and full seasons, while Clubhouse Pass will provide post-launch content and goals for players to enjoy well into the future.”
