This year’s release of PGA Tour 2K23 features the return of a well-known player after an 11-year absence. Following a leak, Tiger Woods has now officially confirmed that he will grace the cover and be one of the playable characters in the game.
The two covers, which probably correspond to two different game editions, have received rave reviews from the golfing world. One site even called them “wonderful.” We would concur.
We will probably see the first gameplay later this month on August 22, shortly before the annual Gamescom event in Cologne, according to 2K.
Predicted Release Date For Pga Tour 2k23
Although nothing has been officially verified, leaked PGA Tour 2K23 listings on Amazon indicate that the game will launch on October 14, 2022.
Platform-wise, the most recent game to be released was on:
- Microsoft Switch
- Nintendo Switch
- Xbox One.
- We anticipate the new game to debut on the aforementioned platforms, as well as PS5, Xbox
- S/X series.
The most recent PGA Tour match took place two years ago and was favorably received by critics. IGN gave PGA Tour 2K21 a 7/10 in their review, saying that it “delivers the most adaptable and fun game of golf since the Tiger Woods series was at its peak.”
Fans of PGA Tour 2K21 will be expecting improvements in this year’s version as it presently has a Metacritic score of 76 and a user score of 6.4.
PGA 2k23: Platforms
We don’t have official confirmation of the platforms the game will be launched on because there is little to no information available about it, but we do have a good notion.
We anticipated a similar release for PGA Tour 2K22 on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia. Of course, the game was launched before the advent of the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, so perhaps some NextGen improvements are in the works this time.
PGA 2k23: Pros At Golf
The only annoying thing about PGA Tour 2K21’s influx of professional golfers was that you could only play against them rather than take control of them.
With the chance to play as Tiger too great to pass up, we hope that changes this year!
LIV Golf may also indicate that Bryson DeChambeau and other elite golfers are not included on the PGA Tour 2K23 roster.
PGA Tour 2K21 Roster
- Justin Thomas
- Cameron Champ
- Bryson DeChambeau
- Matt Kuchar
- Kevin Kisner
- Gary Woodland
- Billy Horschel
- Ian Poulter
- Tony Finau
- Jim Furyk
- Sergio Garcia
- Patrick Cantlay
No ladies from the LPGA was a significant absence from the previous year, which 2K will probably remedy in the upcoming edition. The finest two players in the world, Jin Young Ko and Sei Young Kim are from South Korea. Popular entrants from North America include Nelly Korda, Daniel Kang, and Brooke Henderson.
Legends like Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, and Seve Ballesteros would be a huge hit with the locals as well.
PGA 2k23: Courses & Competitions
The benefit of having PGA Tour licensing is that 2K has access to a huge selection of courses and competitions.

18 dishes are more than plenty, but we want more!
Due to EA’s agreement with the PGA Tour and their exclusive rights to all four Majors, this will be challenging.
The Ryder Cup is still the only significant competition left, and it might persuade European players to participate in 2K.
PGA 2k23: Competition
EA has officially announced that EA Sports PGA Tour would be launched in the spring of 2023 after a long period of silence.
The game has been delayed by a year, so when it does finally arrive, it better be fantastic!
The delay does give 2K Games a “gimme” opportunity to establish a monopoly on golf video games in 2022.
PGA 2k23: Clip For Confirmation
Official footage for the PGA Tour 2K game has finally arrived after much anticipation!
The six-second teaser, which was posted on the PGA Tour 2K official Twitter page, gives us the tantalizing date of Monday, August 22. Tiger Woods revealed through Twitter on Wednesday afternoon that he will appear on the cover of “PGA TOUR 2K23” from 2K Sports.
Woods tweeted, “Excited and humbled to be the cover athlete for #PGATOUR2K23.”

Woods and the PGA TOUR 2K franchise have a long-term agreement announced by 2K in the spring of last year. Woods actively participates in PGA TOUR 2K as executive director and consultant, and 2K collaborates with Woods’ TGR Foundation, which offers STEM instruction and college-access programs to underprivileged youngsters.
PGA Tour 2k23 Is Being Developed With Tiger Woods’ Assistance
Tiger Woods, who may be the best golfer in the sport’s history, was also prominently featured in every edition of EA Sports’ golf game until the game’s final release in 2014.
Due to on- and off-course difficulties, the game switched to Rory McIlory and stopped using the golf phenomena. It will now undergo a total makeover in 2023.
Then, in 2021, Tiger Woods struck a contract with 2K Games for “an exclusive, long-term collaboration,” and the golfer declared that he and 2K would work together to “create the future of golf video games.”
Tiger Woods’ involvement in PGA Tour 2K23 hasn’t received much attention up to this point, but if more information starts to surface, we might learn more about how the legendary player is influencing the development of the game.
