Electronic Arts announced release plans for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 today, revealing the game will arrive March 26 with a range of franchise-firsts. The golf sim will include support for the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) as well as night golf.

Female golfers have been featured in past Tiger Woods titles, though this year's game marks the first time players can create female characters and compete in a virtual tournament to win the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Five playable LPGA golfers will be included in PGA Tour 14, including Stacy Lewis and Lexi Thompson.

Another franchise-first for PGA Tour 14 is night golf. Gamers can tee it up after the sun goes down with an illuminated ball and watch their shots trace the night sky. Further information on this option was not made available.

What's more, PGA Tour 14 will include a Legends of the Majors game mode. In this gametype, players can travel back in virtual time and match up against some of golf's biggest icons during their eraas, including Seve Ballesteros, Ben Hogan, Bobby Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Sam Snead, Lee Trevino, and even Tiger Woods.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 is in development at EA Tiburon in Orlando, Florida. The game will ship for Xbox 360 and PS3 with Kinect and PlayStation Move support, respectively.

At the risk of having mouses thrown at me on the screen and smart phones thrown to their dooms when I say this, this would be probably the ONE sports game I would consider a worthwhile concept...ONLY because it is based off of a sport which actually involves finesse and skill.

Let me tell you a little story...

I once knew a guy who could have been a great golfer, could have gone pro, all he needed was a little time and practice. Decided to go to college instead. Went for four years, did pretty well. At the end of his four years, his last semester he was kicked out... You know what for? He was night putting, just putting at night with the fifteen-year-old daughter of the Dean... You know who that guy was Danny?

Classic movie.....but I digress. Night Golf in a video game?!  Wouldn't you just loved to be in on THAT board mtg when this years updates were being approved?  Wow.

This is all just new paint on the core game.  They would be interesting for about 10 minutes.

I play on the full moon with a ball that glows.  I can't see this game giving me any kind of enjoyment like I would get in real life.  Dimming the tv just isn't going to do it for me.
