Tiger Woods 99 PGA Tour Golf (also known as just Tiger Woods 99) is a sports video game developed by EA Sports and published by Electronic Arts for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation in 1998.


Easter egg[edit]

The first 100,000 pressings of Tiger Woods 99 for the PS1 contained a PC-only easter egg. If you were to load up the disc into your computer, directories for files of the game would appear along with a QuickTime file titled ZZDUMMY.DAT. When played, it is a VHS recording of Jesus vs. Santa by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, commonly recognized as a precursor to South Park. The episode was apparently sneaked onto the disc by an employee at Electronic Arts, and according to the metadata it was converted four days before being added to the disc. EA recalled these copies of the game a few months after it was released, calling the episode "objectionable to consumers".

The game was recalled and subsequent versions did not contain the file.[1][2]
