EA frequently runs sales on its iOS games, slashing the prices on its games down to $0.99. Today, the price drops a little further (http://gigaom.com/apple/get-tiger-woods-pga-tour-12-for-iphone-and-ipad-free-today/) on two games, the iPhone and iPad versions of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2012, in a promotion with @FreeAppADay (http://twitter.com/freeappaday).

The games normally sell for $4.99 and $6.99 for the iPhone and iPad versions respectively, but are discounted today in concert with the PGA TOUR Championship (http://www.pgatour.com/tournaments/r060/), which runs this weekend at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

TouchArcade has a lengthy review (http://toucharcade.com/2011/03/29/tiger-woods-pga-tour-12-review/) of the game, calling Tiger Woods a "solid choice for your mobile golfing needs."

When you write and publish a story like this it would be prudent, as I do when writing for blogs/sites, to remember the people read your articles outside of your US bubble, so therefore it would be helpful as not to create a negative affect, that you mention when something is US only!

Thank you!

Signing out - Hopes raised then quashed ;-)

What do you mean? Is the free download US only? Otherwise I don't understand what you mean. Well, yes if you are in Japan, that might be too late since the date already passed. When I read the other day that something is free at Starbucks for the week, I had to pass because I was in the neighbor city which has a SB the day before and now it was too late to know I could get it there. That's life. :cool:

AWESOME! I heard there's an easter egg in the game where you can go into a bar and have sex with ugly waitresses. Pretty sweet!

It's gotten a bit bloated the last few updates, but still a solid game. I'd say it is worth the cost....it's well worth the space it occupies.

wow, imagine how much more space a game for a 3D device would be...would a 3D capable device need special stuff in the programming or would it just ned to be on the screen? i guess the programming could accompany the screen for a better experience, then again I do not really know.

Apparently it doesn't even exist in Australia...

The item you've requested is not currently available in the Australian Store, but it is available in the US Store. Click Change Store to view this item.

That's all I get told.

You do realize that the US is right below Canada in geography, if we wanted your oil resources, we can easily conquer Canada for it.

300 million to 40 million people.

Who pissed in your Large Double Double? Or spat on your Harvey's burger? Or forgot to put Chalet sauce in your Quarter Chicken White? :rolleyes:

If you specifically ask people to -1 your post, and your sig focuses on it, your posts will be -1'ed. I don't see how that proves any point that you think you're trying to make.:confused:

Actually its inevitable US tensions with the Middle East have been increasing annually, your statement would seem to be a likely proposition over the next few decades.

Ask him for his address, I'll send him a complementary box of Kleenex tissues.

300 million to 40 million people.

And that sums up the whole short history of US. You should teach this sentence in schools, you won't even need history classes anymore. Just the above sentence. "If we want something, we just take it". What a slogan eh ? Geez...

Now, as for the specific game, it was freely available in a big number of countries around the world, not just US. It's a nice move for EA to do this once in a while.

Why is it when a post is made someone in another country gets immediately offended. After all, if you are making a post you are espousing your personal opinion or observation in your particular society or location. Is everyone so insecure with themselves to immediately assume that Americans intentionally exclude someone in another country. Or are you so self absorbed that you feel when we don't that we intentionally meant to offend.

Perhaps we should concern ourselves with the purpose of the board....exchange of information and move forward from there?! :cool:

President George Bush was in the Oval Office wondering which country to invade next, when his telephone rang.

"Hallo, President Bush" a heavily accented voice said. "This is Archie, up ere at the Harp Seal Pub in Badger's Cove, Newfoundland, Canada eh? I am callin' to tells ya dat we are officially declaring war on ya!"

"Well Archie," George replied, "This is indeed important news! How big is your army?"

"Right now," said Archie, after a moments calculation "there is myself, me cousin Harold, me next-door-neighbor Mick, and the whole dart team from the pub. That makes eight!"

George paused. "I must tell you Archie that I have one million men in my army waiting to move on my command."

"Holy jeez," said Archie. "I'll have ta call ya back!" Sure enough, the next day, Archie called again. “Mr. Bush, the war is still on! We have managed to acquire some infantry equipment!"

"And what equipment would that be Archie?” George asked.

"Well sir, we have two combines, a bulldozer, and Harry's farm tractor."

President Bush sighed. "I must tell you Archie, that I have 16,000 tanks and 14,000 armored personnel carriers. Also I've increased my army to one and a half million since we last spoke."

Lard T'underin' bye", said Archie, I'll be getting back to ya."

Sure enough, Archie rang again the next day. "President Bush, the war is still on! We have managed to git ourselves airborne! We up an' modified Harrigan's ultra-light wit a couple of shotguns in the cockpit, and four byes from the Legion have joined us as well!"

George was silent for a minute then cleared his throat. "I must tell you Archie that I have 10,000 bombers and 20,000 fighter planes. My military complex is surrounded by laser-guided, surface-to-air missile sites. And since we last spoke, I've increased my army to TWO MILLION!"

"Jumpins," said Archie,” I’ll have ta call youse back."

Sure enough, Archie called again the next day. "President Bush! I am sorry to have to tell you dat we have had to call off dis 'ere war."

"I'm sorry to hear that" said George. "Why the sudden change of heart?"

Well, sir," said Archie, "we've all sat ourselves down and had a long chat over a bunch of pints, and come to realize dat dere's no way we can feed two million prisoners."

CANADIAN CONFIDENCE CANNOT BE SHAKEN!

1-George Bush is not President
2-Depicting politicians in a cartoon makes me not take you seriously

Because your other wars have gone so well......

Yep

Revolutionary War- After this,England never strong as they once was with their mercantilism policies on the colonies

War of 1812- Cemented America as a formidable country

Mexican American War-Largest state in the continental US is present due to this win.

Spanish American War-Cuba is used to control extremists and other criminals and we would have the Phillipines had we exerted more control.

WW1- Saved Europe from total destruction

WW2- Had it not been for Russia's bad weather and US help, Hitler's reign would not have been stopped and who knows how many more people would have been executed.

Cold War-Successfully stalled which led to the collapse of the USSR and communist Russia

Iraq War- Along with Israel, US now has intelligence in Iraq to monitor middle eastern events and perhaps learn more about Iran's nuclear power.
Not to mention the oil benefit that comes with Iraq.

Our wars did not go well :)
