Do you enjoy sinking a birdie putt on the back 9? Wow, I barely know what that means, but if you do, you might enjoy EA Sports‘ latest for Android, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12. This looks like it could be a great game for your Android phone or tablet judging by the Play Store description:

  • Choose your course and golfer, and play against other scores in PGA TOUR mode
  • Take on the Tiger Challenge, consisting of over 20 mini-games designed to test your skills — earn money that can be used to participate in PGA TOUR events.
  • Play through PGA TOUR courses, including Pebble Beach, St. Andrews, TPC Sawgrass, Hazeltine, Doral, TPC Boston, and Greenbrier
  • Play as or alongside 8 pros, including Tiger Woods, Anthony Kim, Paula Creamer, Natalie Gulbis, Paul Casey, Jim Furyk, Zach Johnson, Camilo Villegas
  • Customize your male or female golfer with skin, shirt, pants, hat, shoes, belts, and gloves
  • Go head-to-head against a friend with local WiFi or Bluetooth Multiplayer
  • Play the all-new Predator fantasy course
  • Play in 4 Game Modes

Not bad for $4.99. There aren’t that many reviews yet, but they are mostly very positive with only a couple of negatives from people saying it wouldn’t play on their device. Too soon to tell if that’s a widespread problem or just isolated cases, but so far the game has a 3.2 out of 5 star rating, which is considered “above average”.
