How to Play as Tiger Woods in PGA Tour 2K21

The new PGA Tour 2K21 game features a number of professional golfers including cover star Justin Thomas. There are other golf stars including Sergio Garcia and Jim Furyk in the game, prompting many gamers to wonder if you can play as pros in PGA 2K21. It’s possible to play as pros like Tiger Woods. There isn’t any secret to doing so, but it will take some work.

Can you play as the pros in PGA 2K21?

As of this report, the PGA Tour 2K21 game hasn’t included an option to use any of the pro golfers on the game roster. They appear during the MyCareer mode once you’re able to play in various PGA tournaments.

That said, we’d love to see them add the option to use the pro golfers somehow into this game to make it even better. In addition, since they have a way to design PGA 2K21 courses, why not have a community creations area for golfers that other gamers have created?
