EA's upcoming Rory McIlroy PGA Tour golf game won't feature the Augusta National course and therefore the iconic Masters tournament, which has just teed off for real.

"Our license with Augusta National has expired and it does not currently appear in EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour," explained EA in a statement given to Polygon.

"However, we will continue to examine opportunities to include this world-class course in the game."

It could be downloadable content, in other words - a sentiment born out by the official EA Sports PGA Tour Twitter account. Whether it will be paid content remains to be seen.

Augusta National and The Masters haven't been in EA's PGA Tour series forever. The last three games - all Tiger Woods games - had them, but they all launched in March (ahead of the tournament teeing off for real).
