As we all know, Tiger Woods is no longer the cover boy for the EA Sports’ golfing franchise and left many of us asking the question, what’s next? Well, I did some digging around and it looks like Ian Poulter is a possible candidate as the new poster child of the legendary golf video game. There was a tweet all the way back from August that Poulter sent that went as follows: “Doing a little work for @EAsportsgolf this morning.” Although the tweet is old, I haven’t seen any other articles written about it and it could possibly hint that Ian could be the next cover boy for the game unless it’s just regular work. But if it was just regular work then why are they working so closely with him two years prior to the new game? That could be a sign because I’d think they’d be working with the cover athletes the most since they’re the stars of the game.
If this is true then I think Ian’s a solid choice since he’s a great competitor and he’s fantastic with the Ryder Cup which is arguably the biggest golf tournament in the world. Yes, not everyone likes Poulter but his competitiveness is fitting with the game and may possibly mean an inclusion of the European Tour as well as Poulter has those connections. So, is Ian Poulter going take the throne from the almighty Tiger Woods? What features would the new game have? I think it would be pretty cool seeing the home courses of some of the top players featured in the game or seeing Pine Valley and Cypress Point in there for the first time. Or neither, just have a course creator and that’ll be the icing on the cake alone! So, what do you think of the possibility of Ian Poulter being the new cover boy for the popular golf video game? As always, let me know in the comments section!
