PGA Tour is a series of golf video games developed and published by Electronic Arts. First introduced in 1998 as part of the company's EA Sports line, the series primarily features courses featured on the U.S. PGA Tour, and other notable courses (such as those that have hosted majors).

From its introduction until 2015, Tiger Woods served as the namesake and cover athlete of the series, which was known as Tiger Woods PGA Tour. In in October 2013, EA announced that it would end its relationship with Woods, and be replaced by a new golfer on the next instalment. On March 16, 2015, it was announced that Rory McIlroy—the current top golfer in the world, would become the new title athlete of the franchise, which will now be known as Rory McIlroy PGA Tour.[1][2]

Although EA Sports developed most games in the series internally, some SKUs have come from outside developers including the first edition, Tiger Woods PGA Tour '99, which Adrenalin Entertainment developed in conjunction with EA for the PlayStation and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2001 for the PlayStation, which was developed by Stormfront Studios. IOMO also produced versions of the game for mobile phones for the 2002, 2004, and 2005 editions.
