EA Sports and Tiger Woods have announced that they had made a mutual decision to end their partnership. That means that Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 will be the last in a long series of
Woods-backed golfing games
However, the Tiger Woods-EA Sports divorce doesn't mean that aren’t new golf games in the works. EA Sports has announced that it's working on a next generation golf game and is offering up a few details of what the next generation game will bring.

PGA Tour will go on without Tiger Woods

Wow, next-gen version sure looks a lot better. The main next-gen feature I'm looking forward more than the graphics is the (hopefully) reduced load times. I'm still on Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 on PS3 and it has some of the longest load times ever.
As a fan of the series since PGA Tour 96 on the Sega Genesis, all I can say is PGA Tour Golf was around a long time before the partnership with TW and I'm sure it will be around for a long time after. Plus the TW specific content in recent versions of the game just seemed more like bloat that detracted from the main golf experience.
And for Tiger's next video game endorsement...
