Electronic Arts and the PGA have announced a six-year contract extension, focusing on the Tiger Woods PGA Tour Franchise.

I didn’t really get into the Tiger Woods games until they let me create my virtual self — as well as grant me access to the Samoan-looking guy that could drive the ball a mile. The 2007 edition of the game will feature the FedEx Cup points race, which is set to make its real-life debut on the tour in 2007. The current-gen fans will be getting the load of licensed courses and golfers — including LPGA deity Annika Sorenstam. The 360 versions are going to show off some new facial-capturing technology that’s meant to emphasize emotion through detail. Media and fans got a taste of it at E3, with the face of virtual Tiger serving as the creepy example.
