That's not what happened at all, we don't know what actually occurred. EA is still in a relationship with PGA even now so there's clearly something else going on.
“Realtionship” = meaningless PR from a public company with something to lose from bad press.

You can put ads on during golf courses and say you have a relationship with the PGA.

The licensing director of the PGA Tour Matt Lofredo explicitly has been on record that they have split from EA and it was “amicable”. You don’t say that if they are still going to make games. EA do not make PGA games anymore. There is zero mention of the PGA or even their old games on their site. Haven’t made a game since 2015. Nothing is in the pipeline.

now I am ready for more wins
He should get plenty. For all the talks about the new generation, we don't see a lot of constant excellence between them. Brooks is probably the strongest mentally of them all things considered, but his game is not beyond reprimand and he's still somewhat rough around the edges. Rory is not a great putter, Jordan looks lost, Rose and DJ are small ballers. Thomas, Xander, DeChambeau and Rahm are all nice, I just don't see a Phil Mickelson out of that group. If Tiger is healthy it doesn't look like anything can get in his way for Jack's record.

Having said that, he doesn't have an infinity window. He needs to take advantage know before the inevitable decline. But just to see him back in this conversation is awesome.

Good point, yeah Tiger does not have much time left to get it done.
I tend to just expect a lot more from Tiger than these new guys so I tend to see the new guys as really really good while I am hard on Tiger missing a putt or two

But I have been a Tiger fan before he became a pro and he more than lived up to the hype, I just want to see a few more wins from him and still holding out hopes he gets Jack's records

I don't care where (just far)
Good for Tiger, when he hugged his kid and then talked about his daughter afterward it made me smile.

All the personal life stuff, who am I to judge. As far as I know he’s never committed an heinous crime or cheated in sport. I think it’s cool that he won another one after all these years. When Tiger was on top it was pretty exciting time for golf.
