McIlroy replaces Tiger as face of video game


LOS ANGELES: Rory McIlroy, who has replaced Tiger Woods as golf’s world number one, will also supplant the 14-time major champion on EA Sports’ PGA Tour video game. EA announced on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) that the game, to be released in June, will be called “Rory McIlroy PGA Tour” and feature the 25-year-old from Northern Ireland on its cover. It will mark the first time since 1998, the year after Woods won his first major crown at the Masters, that Woods has not been featured on the cover. A Woods-EA contract expired in 2013.
