While plenty of sponsors bailed on champion golfer Tiger Woods in the aftermath of his marriage disintegrating due to infidelities, one company that stood by him is Electronic Arts.
The company has announced that Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 11 has shipped whereby players can fight for honour and their country in the all-new Ryder Cup Challenge at the Twenty Ten Course at Celtic Manor Resort; the course of the 2010 Ryder Cup.

For the first time in franchise history, create your own team and take on the world in Online Team Play – featuring up to 12 versus 12 players on Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network. The Tiger Woods PGA TOUR franchise continues its innovation legacy in motion control with its support of the all-new PlayStation Move controller, while the Wii version features an authentic way to hit the links with True View – via a first person camera in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 11.

The Ryder Cup brings together the best American and European golfers in a team competition format and is considered to be one of the last great sporting events to be founded on prestige rather than prize money. Choose from the U.S. or European squad and participate in various competition formats: foursomes – where players hit alternate shots, fourballs and singles – which traditionally bring the biennial event to a close with players going head-to-head. When playing The Ryder Cup mode offline, you can enjoy the flexibility of swapping to any match, thus providing the ultimate control over your team’s success.

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 11 on the Wii brings the links to the living room with two all-new enhanced swing mechanics utilising the Wii MotionPlus accessory. The Advanced Plus swing mechanic will read rotation and swing angle, while the Tour Pro swing mechanic assesses rotation, swing plane and point of contact – creating a one-to-one authentic sports motion experience. Players can then take their newly developed golf skills online and engage in team play matches or hit links with online disc golf featuring all 28 in-game courses. Take a break from the fairways and enjoy the fun with the all-new Mini-Golf mode on one of four original and unique miniature golf courses.

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 11 will be the first EA Sports title to launch with Online Pass, a one-time use registration code with each Xbox 360 and PS3 copy sold new at retail which allows access to online services and features – including Daily, Weekly and Live Tournaments; Online Multiplayer Modes such as Online Team Play, Stroke play, Skins, Best Ball and Head-to-Head Play; and EA SPORTS GamerNet – as well as a bonus advanced driver used on the PGA TOUR for play in-game.
