The Golf Club 2019 will include a fully-licensed PGA Tour career mode.
HB Studios have announced that the world famous PGA Tour will be included as part of The Golf Club 2019.
This year’s edition of the popular golfing simulation will include a full career mode that takes in Q-School, the Web.com Tour, and a full 32-tournament PGA Tour season that includes the FedExCup Playoffs.
At launch the game will include six replicas of renowned TPC courses – Summerlin, Scottsdale, Sawgrass, Southwind, Deere Run and Boston – with additional tournament courses to follow.
The wonderfully named CEO of HB Studios, Alan Bunker, said in a press statement:
“We are absolutely ecstatic and proud to be an official licensee of the PGA Tour, one of the most prestigious sports organizations in the world. This further validates that HB Studios has the number one golf video game on console and PC platforms. With the inclusion of PGA Tour content and the support of this fantastic organization, it will elevate our game even higher and provide our users with an even more authentic video game golfing experience.”
The PGA Tour’s Len Brown added:
“We are so excited for the launch of The Golf Club 2019 featuring the PGA Tour that highlights some of our best tournaments. This will allow our fans to take the same path to the PGA TOUR by earning their card through the Web.com Tour. Additionally, this will give gamers the opportunity to play under the same tournament conditions that our players face week in and week out. We are thrilled with this partnership.”
The Golf Club 2019 PGA Tour Career Mode
Players begin with a qualifying tournament, aiming for a top 75 finish that grants entry into the Web.com Tour. Finishing in first place in three of the six events automatically earns the player a PGA Tour card for early promotion. Finishing in the top 25 on the money list after the six events will also provide a route onto the tour.
Players will then compete over the course of 32 events for a place on the leaderboard, and strive to achieve sponsorship goals for in-game rewards. The tour will also include player rivalries, providing head-to-head competition.
The Golf Club 19 will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in August.
