Tiger signs long-term deal with 2K video games

Tiger Woods being able to leave hospital wasn’t the only good news to come out of the Woods camp last week.

Game publisher 2K also announced that the 15-time major champion has signed an exclusive, long-term partnership with the studio responsible for some of the most popular golf titles in history including the recent smash-hit, PGA Tour 2K21, which has sold-in two million units worldwide.

“I am looking forward to making my return to the video game landscape, and with 2K and HB Studios, I’ve found the right partners to make it happen,” said Woods.

“I’m honoured to take part in this opportunity and look forward to sharing my expertise and insights as we build the future of golf video games together.”

The partnership will include the exclusive rights to Woods’ name and likeness for use in the PGA Tour 2K franchise along with any other golf games produced during the partnership.

The 45-year-old will also play an active role in the production of titles as an Executive Director and consultant for the PGA Tour 2K franchise.

“In golf, there is no bigger icon than Tiger Woods. Like the rest of the world, we were saddened to hear of his recent accident, and we wish him a full and smooth recovery,” said 2K President David Ismailer.

“We have been eager to announce our partnership with Tiger, whose legendary career has transcended the sport. We are thrilled to have him join our PGA Tour 2K series as an Executive Director.”
