PGA Tour 2K23 Graphic

PGA Tour 2K23, which is slated to launch on 14th October 2022, with three editions, will have Tiger Woods as the cover star. 

PGA Tour 2K22 included real-life golfers, and fans are probably expecting PGA Tour 2K23 to follow the same fashion, but will it? That’s what we are trying to uncover in this piece. 

Previously, players could only play against pro golfers rather than taking control of them. PGA 2K22 came with changes around that and we hope that players can control the pro golfers this year too. 

Who else will be a part of PGA Tour 2K23 alongside Tiger Woods? Let’s find out which names have been confirmed to be in the game.
