Want to play Augusta? It'll be on Tiger Woods' game

KAPALUA, Hawaii — The Masters is about to let anyone play Augusta National — at least in a video game.

In another step toward reaching a younger audience, the Masters will be featured in EA Sports’ next edition of the popular “Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12” golf game franchise.

The game is go on sale March 29, a week before the Masters.

It will be the first time Augusta National has allowed its fabled golf course to be used for a video game.

Payne also announced Tuesday the “Masters Tournament Foundation,” a charity arm that will allow Augusta National to invest in developmental programs around the world.

Payne said all proceeds from the EA Sports game would go into the new foundation.
