With all eyes on the PGA Tour 2K series after the company’s latest announcement, 2K released a brand new multiplayer game mode for PGA Tour 2K21. Dubbed Divot Derby, the new mode provides gamers with a single-elimination, shootout style knockout mode.
Divot Derby explained
Within Divot Derby, a group of up to 20 players (or up to 16 on Nintendo Switch) tees off simultaneously. From there, multicolored ball flight trails streak through the air as participants race to land on the green and sink the putt. The first golfer to make it to the ninth and final hole wins the mode, while players who get knocked out early can watch the rest of the match in Spectator Mode.
For anyone familiar with the Mario Golf titles this probably gives you Super Rush vibes. Divot Derby is available now via a free update for owners of PGA Tour 2K21 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The mode is coming soon for Nintendo Switch.
While the new mode may be a welcome addition for those still playing PGA Tour 2K21, everyone is looking forward to 2K22 and beyond. Yesterday, 2K came to terms with Tiger Woods on a multi-year agreement. This deal not only secures exclusive rights to Woods’ name and likeness but enlists him as an executive producer and consultant for the 2K golf games moving forward.
Electronic Arts’ Tiger Woods PGA Tour series was a hit for many years. PGA Tour 2K22 will see the return of Tiger Woods to video games for the first time in nearly a decade. Hopefully 2K can capture some of the magic that created some all-time great virtual golf titles.
