Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy will join Tiger Woods on the covers of the North American and European versions, respectively, of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 video game when it’s released next month.

Fowler and McIlroy won out in fan voting for an athlete to appear with Woods, by margins of 52% and 54% over their next-closest contenders. Over the three-week, Internet-based bracket-style contest, more than 250,000 votes were cast from more than 35 countries around the world.

“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 honor,” EA Sports Marketing Director Craig Evans said, in a statement. “Fan engagement has been critical to the development and success of the Tiger Woods PGA Tour franchise over the past decade and it’s great to see so many fans excited about the cover vote and Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13.”
