Does having few licensed courses and golfers affect your McIlroy purchase decision?

Just two weeks now – and well under that for those with EA Access, and Rory McIlroy PGA Tour will be in the hands of consumers. EA Sports has made a concerted effort to appeal to a more casual crowd with the game, offering up multiple play “styles”, fantasy courses, and a mode called the Night Club Challenge. What they haven’t done is tout their lineup of licensed courses and golfers and for good reason.

There are only 12 real golfers on the roster and only 8 courses included on disc (plus one you get for pre-ordering). What was probably the most high profile differentiator between McIlroy and the cheaper option of The Golf Club, the licensing, now looks to be a glaring weakness – particularly if EA plans to add courses later and charge for them as DLC.
