Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 is a sports video game developed by EA Tiburon and published by EA Sports for PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360.

A sports game is a video game genre that simulates the practice of sports. Most sports have been recreated with a game, including team sports, track and field, extreme sports and combat sports. Some games emphasize actually playing the sport, whilst others emphasize strategy and sport management. Some, such as Need for Speed, Arch Rivals and Punch-Out!!, satirize the sport for comic effect. This genre has been popular throughout the history of video games and is competitive, just like real-world sports. A number of game series feature the names and characteristics of real teams and players, and are updated annually to reflect real-world changes. Sports genre is one of the oldest genres in gaming history.

A video game is an electronic game that involves interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a two- or three-dimensional video display device such as a TV screen, virtual reality headset or computer monitor. Since the 1980s, video games have become an increasingly important part of the entertainment industry, and whether they are also a form of art is a matter of dispute.

Features

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2011 features the Ryder Cup tournament for the first time in the game franchise's history. The game also features for the first time a 24 player online multiplayer mode allowing game players to compete in the Ryder Cup online, representing either the American or European side of the tournament.

Ryder Cup mens golf competition between the USA and European team

The Ryder Cup is a biennial men's golf competition between teams from Europe and the United States. The competition is contested every two years with the venue alternating between courses in the United States and Europe. The Ryder Cup is named after the English businessman Samuel Ryder who donated the trophy. The event is jointly administered by the PGA of America and Ryder Cup Europe, the latter a joint venture of the PGA European Tour (60%), the PGA of Great Britain and Ireland (20%), and the PGAs of Europe (20%).

The Wii version introduces 2 new swing modes, one being Advance Plus, a mode in which the direction of the swing is tracked, and another being Tour Pro, in which the camera changes to first person and the club is 1:1 controlled (the club is seen as if you were looking downwards). It is suggested that in this mode, you place a real golf ball on the ground so you may see a point of reference while playing. The version also adds 36 miniature golf holes and an online disc golf mode.

Also featured is the "True View" feature, a step toward adding some realism to the game by removing some assists, namely the fly-by view prior to taking a swing, forcing a player to use the map and his or her eye for the green.
