EA has announced that its PGA Tour series of golf games will no longer don Tiger Wood’s name, following an end to EA’s partnership with the famous golfer.

The publisher announced that its 15-year collaboration, which started with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 99 in 1998, with Woods is now over. ”EA SPORTS and Tiger Woods have also made a mutual decision to end our partnership, which includes Tiger’s named PGA TOUR golf game,” EA said in a statement. “We’ve always been big fans of Tiger and we wish him continued success in all his future endeavors.

“EA Sports golf fans have always loved authentic courses and players, but they’ve also asked for more choice and customization in how and where they play. We’re working on a new approach to deliver the best golf experience to our fans — we think you’ll love it, and so we’re excited to share the first screenshot of our next generation golf game currently in development.

“Moving forward, we will continue to work with the PGA TOUR exclusively to create groundbreaking golfing titles and our partnership remains strong,” the publisher concluded. “EA Sports is committed to creating a new golf experience that leverages the best technologies across EA to deliver a stunning and immersive game for mobile and next generation consoles. We’ll have more news soon.”
