As part of the agreement between EA and the PGA TOUR, ShotLink® will be the provider of on-course data for the new game, helping provide enhanced PGA TOUR golfer authenticity to create an ultra-realistic experience for EA SPORTS™ PGA TOUR™. TrackMan’s measurement data will allow EA’s game designers to perfect gameplay and numerous stats throughout the game, such as club tuning.”

      not sure if it is anything more, but if it was also their graphics and gaming engine that would be interesting, but I don’t believe it will include this.

Apparently the game will be more realistic in the sense that certain tour players specialized or are better in certain parts of the game. As far as ball characteristics, the ball will fly less or a certain way in weather conditions.
