After 15 years and 16 video games, Tiger Woods and EA Sports have decided to part ways.

EA SPORTS and Tiger Woods have also made a mutual decision to end our partnership, which includes Tiger's named PGA TOUR golf game," wrote Daryl Holt, vice president and general manager of golf at EA Sports, in a statement on the company's website. "We’ve always been big fans of Tiger and we wish him continued success in all his future endeavors. Moving forward, we will continue to work with the PGA TOUR exclusively to create groundbreaking golfing titles and our partnership remains strong."

The franchise debuted with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 99 in 1998 after Woods won his first major championship at the 1997 Masters and continued through its latest installment, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14.

No word yet on what caused the split that ended the multi-million dollar venture.

EA Sports says they're "working on a new approach to deliver the best golf experience to our fans" and released a sneak-peek screenshot of what that will look like.
