One of the most exciting features in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 is the "Legacy Challenge" that puts players right into the hot spots of the golf legend's career. It's so detailed that you start off back when Tiger was shorter than the golf clubs he uses today. From there, you learn how to play golf, get your swing right and play through his biggest moments. Players are even treated to Tiger's appearance on the legendary Mike Douglas Show.
What makes the challenge so great is that you don't start off as a baby winning matches against pros. It's the opposite. What is second nature to Tiger now is an obstacle to beat early on. Check out this video to see what we mean.
