Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 is a golfing simulation video game in the PGA Tour series developed by EA Tiburon and published by Electronic Arts. It was released in 2010 for the PlayStation 3, Wii, Xbox 360 and iOS. The game is the first in the series to support the PlayStation Move controller for the Sony PlayStation 3.[1] As with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10, the Wii version utilizes Wii MotionPlus. This edition of Tiger Woods PGA Tour is the first to feature someone on the cover other than Tiger himself. The privilege was given to the Northern Irish golfer Rory McIlroy, who was the first person to win a PGA Tour event before their 21st birthday since Tiger Woods.

Features[edit]

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2011 features the Ryder Cup tournament for the first time in the game franchise's history. The game also features for the first time a 24 player online multiplayer mode allowing game players to compete in the Ryder Cup online, representing either the American or European side of the tournament.[2]

The Wii version introduces 2 new swing modes, one being Advance Plus, a mode in which the direction of the swing is tracked, and another being Tour Pro, in which the camera changes to first person and the club is 1:1 controlled (the club is seen as if you were looking downwards). It is suggested that in this mode, you place a real golf ball on the ground so you may see a point of reference while playing. The version also adds 36 miniature golf holes and an online disc golf mode.

Also featured is the "True View" feature, a step toward adding some realism to the game by removing some assists, namely the fly-by view prior to taking a swing, forcing a player to use the map and his or her eye for the green.
