EA launches Tiger Woods Online

Free-to-play golf game goes live.

Timing its swing to perfection to match the disgraced champion's return to the sport, EA Sports has officially launched Tiger Woods PGA Tour Online.

The free-to-play, browser-based golf game is still technically in beta, but is now open to all. You can sign up and give it a go at the game's website.

The game boasts single, multiplayer and tournament modes and can be suspended and resumed at any time you like.

From now until Sunday, you can participate in the first of the game's live events - the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.

This is EA's next bet in free-to-play PC gaming, after Battlefield Heroes and card strategy game BattleForge. How EA will make money out of Tiger Woods Online isn't quite clear at the moment; the pricing model doesn't seem to be implemented yet, although EA has mentioned both micro-transactions and a "tiered subscription" in the past.
