With the release of PGA Tour 2K23 on the horizon, we at SGO would be remiss not to catch people up on everything PGA Tour 2K23. So without further adieu, here is what we know about PGA Tour 2K23.
Everything We Know About PGA 2K23
Tiger Woods on Both Covers
One of the greatest golf players of all time is gracing the covers of PGA 2K23. He’s a 15-time major winner. He owns a litany of records and is a certified Hall-of-Famer. So one would find it appropriate to have the legend dawn the covers.

Introducing the 3-Click Swing
PGA Tour 2K23 re-introduces a three-click swing. This will be an option alongside the modern PGA 2K stick swing. Depending on the platform, the player would hold A or X for power and tap it twice to line up your swing path and club face angle.
The presentation differs from the traditional 3-Click swing mechanic you might’ve seen in past golf games: you’ll see a circular power meter displayed as you take your stance, rather than a horizontal bar. Regardless of whether you’re hitting a normal iron shot, pitching, or chipping, the meter shape won’t change. You can look at the full breakdown here.
Become a Legend MyCareer
Players start their legend as a member of the Korn Ferry Tour and graduate to the competitive scene of the PGA Tour. With each tournament, you’ll be tested against the best talent on the planet, competing for FedExCup points and a shot at first place in the standings.
Last year’s multiplayer featured the always chaotic Divot Derby, where players raced from the tee box to the pin as fast as they could to be dubbed victorious, along with Online Societies where you could challenge fellow players around the world in one- to four-day tournaments. These popular formats are returning in PGA Tour 2K23, along with traditional Stroke and Match Play—but we’re excited to welcome Topgolf into the fold.
Best enjoyed with friends and family, this real-life entertainment venue is now part of PGA Tour 2K23, where good times and laughs can be had locally or online. Step onto one of the many hitting bays solo or with up to three other players, and paint the glistening skyline with a barrage of white golf balls. Take turns hitting 10 balls each and try racking up points by aiming for the assortment of colorful circular and square targets. The player with the most points at the end of the round will be crowned victorious.
PGA Tour 2K23 will be available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Steam.
