Following the stunning announcement last week that it was reviving its simulation golf franchise, Electronic Arts has revealed that it will also bring back the video game series’ most illustrious feather in its cap: the Masters Tournament.

The Masters and its home course in Augusta, Georgia, will be exclusive to EA Sports PGA Tour, the company said on Wednesday, one day before the 2021 Masters. Augusta National will be featured in a golf video game for the first time since Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013.

The Masters was only available in three golf games – EA gained the rights with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12, but by the time Rory McIlroy PGA Tour was released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2015, the license agreement had expired. When asked about the length of the new deal, an EA Sports spokeswoman declined to answer.

EA Sports PGA Tour, in addition to the Masters, will include the PGA Championship, the US Open, and the British Open, making it the only video game to contain all four major tournaments in men’s professional golf.

As EA Sports reenters the golf market to compete with 2K Sports’ PGA Tour 2K franchise, it’s something of a coup. The PGA Tour 2K21 game in 2020 featured 15 real-life courses, some of which had previously held major tournaments. Despite its own agreement with the PGA, however, 2K did not possess the rights to the titles of the major tournaments.
