2 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 more than an hour with developers, reviewing new features in the game, and offering feedback on making the game more authentic, from the flight pattern of a ball, stances in a bunker to how far a ball would really go from particular points on a course. Here, Tiger draws out the proper trajectory of a ball on a shot out of the sand. 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.
