The PGA Tour 2K21 Pros roster has triggered much discussion. A small cohort of well-known golfers is officially licensed - up to the point of showing their likenesses, and seeing in-round highlights. Sadly, and bizarrely, you can't actually play as any of them. Still, if you’re going to keep them at bay in PGA Tour 2K21 tournaments it’s worth knowing the competition, so we've rounded up the elite below. Our other very small complaint? None of the officially licensed golfers are lefties! Still, that’s a minor quibble. Let’s crack on with your PGA Tour 2K21 Pros guide.
The cover star of the game is the PGA Tour 2K21 Pro you see most of and hear most about from the commentators in the game. A major winner in 2017, Justin Thomas enjoyed that year as his breakout year winning 5 times on the PGA Tour, including the in-game final goal of the FedEx Cup. Now one of the best players in the world, he's one of your top PGA Tour 2K21 Pro competitors.
One of the youngest and best players on the tour, Cameron Champ is already known as one of the biggest hitters going - he was the longest driver in the 2018-19 season - and has been recorded registering a near-130mph clubhead speed. That is fast. Surely one for a major - or several - in years to come.
A golfer who has transformed their game and body over the past year and bit, or so, Bryson DeChambeau is hitting the fall farther and farther and currently owning the power game in golf. Watch out for booming drives and bulging biceps.
The 2016 Olympic Bronze medallist is an ever-present on upper echelons of the Tour since turning pro and joining it in 2000. One of the most consistent players, particularly in Match-play, perhaps second only to Tiger Woods, he has a rounded swing, probably influenced by his tennis-playing youth. Always one to fear on the course.
A great striker of the ball, Kevin Kisner is an underrated American golfer on the tour right now, having reworked his game after a deterioration in his swing. He now gives anyone a tough run on the course and is certainly one to look out for, with surges up the FedEx rankings and tournament leaderboards known to happen.
One of the longest hitters on the tour, Gary Woodland features a lot as a PGA Tour 2K21 pro - I've encountered numerous commentary lines about him during my in-game career. He's a major winner in the real-world and has one of the most well-rounded games - with a lean on power so expect him to be competing at the top for a good while.
A great iron player, and ball striker, Billy Horschel is a fierce competitor who loves to win. His play is supported by a great textbook swing that doesn't have many moving parts so is always hard to beat out of consistency if nothing else. On the tour, he's likely to be a consistent challenger for Majors and one to keep a close eye on in the next few years.
Though he's never quite done it at a real-life Major golf tournament, Ian Poulter is still a force to be reckoned with. Great under pressure, as demonstrated by his Ryder Cup performances, he's a gritty competitor who can grind you down. Plus he has a great collection of golf outfits - love them or hate them, they are memorable.
The first player of Tongan and Samoan descent to play on the Tour, Tony Finau is one of the standout characters and coolest guys on the PGA Tour 2K21 Pros list. He's a consistent player, and a big hitter known to reach above-200 mile an hour ball speeds; he can make mincemeat of the PGA Tour 2K21 courses, and his rivalry is a good one to overcome. He's such a cool dude, even the fictional in-game rivalry feels at odds with his character.
He of the most intriguing golf swings is present as part of the PGA Tour 2K21 pro list. Furyk is known as Mr. 58 due to his record-breaking - and frankly ridiculous - low round of 58 in 2016 at the Travelers Championship. He might only have one major win under his belt, but he's one of the most consistent golfers ever to grace the Tour.
Arguably, the crispest iron hitter in the game, and best ball-striker out there, Sergio is a great addition to the 2K21 roster. His accuracy is well known, too, so to come out on top of your rivalry with him, you need to fire it right at the pin and be brave enough to take on aggressive routes of play.
Bringing his very successful amateur career into the professional game, Patrick Cantlay is one of the newest stars on the PGA Tour. His career has been hit by a bad back injury but he's come back to be one of the most underrated rising stars in the game with great iron play and a well-rounded, uncomplicated game that's tough to beat on his day.
