EA Sports continues to try to add a mixture of legends, established talent and up-and-comers to the Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 roster. The newest golfer to earn his way onto the game's roster is Keegan Bradley, the 26-year-old from Woodstock, Vt.

He has three PGA Tour wins, including the 2011 PGA Championship in Johns Creek, Ga.
Bradley joins Tiger Woods, Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson and the legends Arnold Palmer and Bobby Jones as playable characters.
Bradley is one of four golfers who will make their first appearance in the game. Bud Cauley, Lexi Thompson and Stacy Lewis are also Tiger Woods PGA Tour virtual rookies.
Most of the details in the game are yet to be revealed, but what we do know is the game will feature a Historic Edition. The highlight of the known details in this version is the ability to play as Jones in the 1934 Masters.
The retro approach has gone over well in series like NBA 2K, Madden and NHL. It seems logical for EA Sports to try and implement the nostalgic concept in the Tiger Woods series.
It appears as though the presentation will be one of the key differentiating factors visually, but from a gameplay standpoint I’m hoping the equipment and courses are different as well.
There have also been several pre-order offers revealed. Here they are with the retailers and the specifics of the offer, per EA Sports:
Gamestop: Pinehurst No. 2 DLC Course
Amazon: Bethpage Black DLC Course
Best Buy: 1986 Jack Nicklaus Exclusive Character
Wal-Mart: Whistling Straits DLC Course
Origin: Set of Exclusive Historic Golf Clubs
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 is scheduled to release in March 26 2013. Stay tuned for more information on the game as it becomes available.
