Late last week, we introduced you to video game Bryson—a svelte companion to the muscle-bound beast that was making mince meat (it’s high in protein!) of Colonial during the opening round of the Charles Schwab Challenge. Following cover star Justin Thomas and Matt “you don’t have to tip virtual caddies” Kuchar, “The Scientist” was the third playable PGA Tour pro unveiled for golf’s much-anticipated return to modern consoles, 'PGA Tour 2K21'. Over the course of the weekend, 2K Games slowly trickled out all nine remaining names, concluding during the final round on Sunday with the 2017 Masters champ, Sergio Garcia. The end result is the solid (minus some obvious big names) 12-man roster you see below. Choose your fighter.
Yes. We said Jim Furyk. Go ahead. Run around your living room pulling your own hair while screaming like Kevin McAllister. Get it out of your system.
The most noticeable absentees are guys that were always going to be impossible to get. This isn’t Tiger Woods’ PGA Tour anymore, literally or digitally. It would have been nice to see the likes of Koepka, Fleetwood and Matthew Wolff involved, but the motion-capture guys probably had their hands full with Furyk’s swing anyway.
There is the glaring lack of a great villain, however. ‘Mortal Kombat’ had Scorpion. ‘Resident Evil’ had Nemesis. On paper at least, 'PGA Tour 2K21' seems to be missing that integral element, but let’s just wait and see. Maybe, just maybe Patrick Reed will make a cameo as the final boss.
