EA Sports challenges you to beat Tiger Woods and the rest of the 2009 U.S. Open. Do you accept the challenge? I would sure try it... After plenty of practice on amateur mode, of course. Sounds pretty tough, to me. I'm not one for golf, but I do like a bit of competition, especially in the gaming world. It's worth a shot!
June 17, 2009 – EA SPORTS invites you to take on Tiger Woods and the
rest of the leaderboard for the 2009 U.S. Open at Bethpage Black as

Association, during the week of the U.S. Open (June 18-21) golf fans

opinion. It is almost like having an online career mode.”
