This is the first version of the game since 2006 not to be released on the Wii.[3] EA has sunsetted the servers which means the courses are no longer available for download.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 features a game mode called "Legacy Challenge," where players control Tiger Woods through various points of his life.[4]
