“For more than a decade, the Masters Tournament has been the most requested and coveted feature for the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR franchise among our fans,” said EA Sports president Peter Moore. “Pairing the number one golf video game franchise with the most prestigious golf tournament in the world is a perfect marriage and we’re thrilled to bring our fans this exciting opportunity to experience Augusta National Golf Club like never before.”

PGA Tour 12 will feature an unprecedented recreation of August National that was made possible thanks to a new laser scanning technology that let the game’s developers scan each hole down to the exact placement of trees, the famed azaleas, and every bump and elevation change of its legendary fairways and greens.

Players will be able to relive classic Masters moments, and even attempt to recreate all four of Tiger Woods’ green jacket-winning performances. The game also introduces a new “Road to the Masters” career mode where players will take their character from the amateur ranks to Q-school and on to the professional circuit.

Every player will also be given a caddie (aka a pro jock) this time around as well to help gauge each shot and assist in forming a successful strategy on the course. There will more than 20 professionals available in the game, and 16 courses to play, including Australia’s Royal Melbourne Gold Club , TPC San Antonio, and franchise regulars St. Andrews and Pebble Beach Golf Links.

Veteran sports commentators Jim Nantz and David Feherty will provide the shot-by-shot analysis, and contribute to the all-new presentation elements being introduced this year to enhance the broadcast-caliber design. Here's Jim Nantz talking about what it was like to see August brough to virtual life in such stunning detail:

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters will be available March 29 on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii. The PS3 version will include Move support.

As a lifelong golfer and Masters lover, I couldn’t be happier right now. I have been waiting to take a shot around Amen Corner for as long as I can remember, and, since it’s a game, I won’t have to worry about losing any balls in the creek. It’s win-win!
