McIlroy and Fowler to feature on Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 cover

EA Sports has announced that professional golf stars Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy will feature on the cover of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13, alongside the former world number one.

Their victories, which will see the players feature on the front of the European and US versions, come after a three-week voting campaign carried out on the game's Facebook page.

During the final week of voting, Fowler defeated fellow countryman Bubba Watson to triumph on the US vote, with Northern Ireland's McIlroy beating off stiff competition from world number one Luke Donald for the European side.

As part of the contest, fans of the hugely popular franchise cast 250,000 votes from more than 35 countries across the globe to name their favourite golfer.

Craig Evans, marketing director at EA Sports, said: "Over the past several weeks we've been thrilled to witness the passion of our fans for this competition as well as the golfers who have actively rallied their fan base for this unique honour."

McIlroy, 22, recently parted ways with manager Andrew Chandler at International Sports Management to join fellow Northern Ireland professional Graeme McDowell at Horizon.
