Electronic Arts, the publisher behind Facebook sports game hits like Madden NFL Superstars and FIFA Superstars, is prepared to launch its next big sports game this December: PGA Tour Golf Challenge. EA Tiburon is working on the game, which strikes us as odd considering Playfish has handled the first two EA Sports games on Facebook. Oh, and did we mention that it will be in full 3D? Because it will, thanks to the Unity3D Engine.

Players will be able to fully customize their golfers and level them up individually as they perfect their game across six courses at launch like the original St. Andrews. To support Facebook's short-spurt gameplay, PGA Tour Golf Challenge will feature daily three-hole challenges to compete against your friends in for that quick fix. Not to mention that weekly champions will be named as a result of these mini competitions.

Of course, virtual goods will play a role in the game through the Pro Shop, where you'll deck out your golfer with new clubs, courses and gear. Though, since Playfish is out of the picture this time around, we imagine EA is going to make good on its promise to Facebook. Expect a full preview when this game launches in December. Until then, just continue ogling.
