PGA Tour 2K23 offers new casual modes to help rookies get into the game, while giving seasoned players new challenges and opportunities to work on their skills.

Training mode offers multiple ways to develop skills, including swing calibration, lessons, chipping practice, a driving range and a putting green.
"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 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."
Woods leads a roster of more than 14 male and female pros at launch, including Justin Thomas, Lexi Thompson, Tony Finau, Lydia Ko, Collin Morikawa, Will Zalatoris, Brooke Henderson and more.
