I don't follow professional golfing because you'd have to be some kind of lunatic to care about a bunch of rich guys hitting a ball into a hole, but I follow golfing video games, and today I learned something big about Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13. Controversial cover-boy Tiger Woods will be sharing the cover of 13 with golfer Rickie Fowler.
Fowler was chosen by fan votes, and he even beat out the awesomely named "Bubba Watson" for the honor. "I couldn't let Bubba beat me," said Fowler "He wouldn't have let me live it down if he had won."
More than 250,000 votes came in from 35 countries to decide the cover athlete, with Fowler topping Watson 52% to 48% at the end.
"I don't think I'll ride Bubba too hard. We had a friendly wager at the end – the loser takes the winner out to dinner. He can tell me when and where and I'll be there," Fowler said. "To be on there with Tiger Woods is pretty cool. I've spent a lot of time watching him since he won the Masters in 1997."
Woods has not commented on the addition of another golfer; I assume he's too busy rebuilding his personal brand and/or losing at golf.
