The first cover star announced by 2K is former world number 1 Justin Thomas.
Currently ranked second in the world, JT has lifted illusive titles such as the PGA Championship and the FedEx Cup as well as representing the US in the Ryder Cup.
Speaking to RealSport, Thomas said: “It means a lot to be on the cover of PGA Tour 2K21.
“I was thinking about it and it’s a great way for my first involvement to be in a video game – to be on the cover is about as good as it gets!
“It’s an unbelievable honour because there are so many great players, deserving and great players who could have been chosen. To be asked was just humbling.”
Although you can’t play as JT on the game, he and his fellow pros will be setting challenges for you.
No 2K title would be complete without MyPLAYER, where you create your pros to take on the best of the best.
You can personalise your character with equipment and apparel from licensed brands, including Adidas, Polo Ralph Lauren, Malbon Golf, Callaway Golf, Bridgestone Gold, TaylorMade Golf and more.

Expect incredible realism in PGA Tour 2K21, thanks to their course-scanning technology.
The footage gives us an insight to the lengths 2K has gone to ensure each venue is captured in amazing accuracy and gets us even more excited to step out on the green.
As new footage appears online, we’re getting a good look at just how extensive the all new course creator for PGA Tour 2K21 is.
You can add in seemingly anything from buildings to huge sand bunkers, crowds and even boats!
There is going to be a seriously fun part of the game, and we can’t wait to see what kind of designs the community comes up with.
There is no news on whether PGA Tour 2K21 will be re-released on Next Gen consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X, with the game arriving roughly three months beforehand.
With Smart Delivery on Series X, however, any game purchased on Xbox One will be available for free from your library on Xbox One.
After the NBA 2K21 reveal on Next Gen, there is a small glimmer of hope that PGA Tour 2K21 could receive a separate version for PS5 and Xbox Series X, but still unlikely.
You want some gameplay?
Well here it is thanks to a first runthrough from the team at 2K.
We really like the course map that pops up at the tee, with a first look of the pro rivalry feature being shown off.
We’ve already been able to get our hands on PGA Tour 2K21, with 2K giving us early access to the game.
PGA Tour 2K21 is heading to numerous platforms, including the versatile and surprisingly powerful Nintendo Switch.
But for fans of the Switch, one question reigns supreme, and it circulates around the impressive motion-control functionality of the machine.
As of yet, there has been no announcement that joy-con will feature in the Switch version, and the consensus on Reddit appears to agree that if it were a feature, 2K would have announced it by now.
The PGA Tour 2K21 developers took to Reddit to answer some questions from the community!
They addressed difficulty levels, more sponsored equipment, and the LPGA.
