In a Ryder Cup year it seems very apt that EA introduce the Team Tour option into their successful golf series. It allows the gamer to gather a team together to tackle the world tour, so you can pick your power players for the wide open US courses and the technically precise golfers for the tricky Links courses.
It's basic teamwork but something Mr Woods could do with a few pointers on, as for all his individual success he's never had much of an impact on the US vs Europe competition. And lets hope that trend continues.
As for his golfing sim, it really is business as usually - the same overwhelming amount of options, the same beautifully-weighted control system and the same rewarding gameplay.

Then, alongside the Team Tour mode, there are a few new pro-golfers and seven new courses, which we suppose allows EA to slap on the 07 and call it a new game.
The trouble for EA is that they nailed the golfing sim about four or five years ago when they put the swing control on the analogue sticks. So it's not like the FIFA series where there's real sense of there being a work in progress, it's just the odd tweak and cosmetic touch up.
