Perry, Pernice tied at Champions Tour finale

3 p.m.: Golfweek was granted exclusive access to an EA Sports motion-capture session with Tiger Woods on Tuesday in Orlando, Fla. During the day, Tiger was taken through different stations where everything from headshots, to voiceovers, to a breakdown of the upcoming features in the Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2013 game (slated for release next Spring) and finally to the actual capturing of his swings. Above, Tiger spent about 30 minutes playing the game with contest winner, Kevin O'Connor. Tiger played as himself, while O'Connor chose to be Rickie Fowler. O'Connor beat Tiger handily, as the 19-year-old Indiana University student told Tiger, "I have more time to practice than you do." Tiger quipped in return, "Not this weekend." O'Connor razzed Tiger throughout the process, which was met with laughter from Tiger. On Monday (Aug. 22, 2011), we will be releasing an exclusive video that will kick off a year-long series on the making of the new game.
