EA Sports has announced that Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 will be released for iPhone, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 on 8th June.

What's more, the PS3 version is one of the first games to confirm support for the PS3 Motion Controller, thought to be called Arc.

Tiger 11 also features the Ryder Cup, allowing you to control US or European teams in a variety of scenarios both online and off.

You will be able to take part in foursomes, fourballs and singles matches, and offline you can switch between matches to control everyone's destiny.

This year's cover will also now feature Tiger Woods and Northern Ireland golfer Rory McIlroy to reflect the Ryder Cup influence (and not because of Tiger's wandering wood).

Other new features include an online teamplay mode for up to 24 players on PS3 and Xbox 360.

On Wii, there are also control changes to enhance the game's utilisation of Wii MotionPlus. The "Advanced Plus" option reads club rotation and angle, while Tour Pro adopts a first-person view and considers club rotation, swing plane and point of contact.

There's no further word on the PS3 Motion Controller options, but perhaps we'll hear more tonight at Sony's GDC press conference, which takes place at 4pm PST (midnight in old money).
