EA Sports PGA Tour Update 1.000.008

EA has released EA Sports PGA Tour update 1.000.008 on all platforms this June 27, and this is another unannounced patch for the game, so don’t expect anything major from it. Read on for what’s new in the EA Sports PGA Tour: Road to the Masters patch notes.

EA Sports PGA Tour Update 1.000.008 Patch Notes:

Update: EA Has released the patch notes and this title update brings performance mode into the golf sim!

PS5 and Xbox Series X players can now use the new “Visual Quality” setting to toggle between “Quality Mode” and “Performance Mode” in the visual settings screen.

  • “Quality Mode” represents the game’s current behavior, which provides the highest quality visuals at 30 frames per second (FPS).
  • “Performance Mode” is an all-new rendering mode, which provides smoother camera motion and animation at 60 FPS, at the expense of lower resolution and visual fidelity.

In anticipation of the U.S Women’s Open next week, updates have been made to support a series of challenges which will be released during the tournament.

Lastly, we have fixed a bug that caused Career mode leaderboards to show “E” for every golfer during intro and outro sequences, regardless of their actual score. We understand and share in your frustration when an update introduces a new issue like this that wasn’t previously occurring. We remain committed to adding new features to EA SPORTS™ PGA TOUR™ like “Performance Mode”, but we will do our best to do so without compromising the quality of your current experience.

  • Gameplay:
    • “Round Settings” have been added to the scorecard screen, so that settings such as wind speed and course conditions can be referenced while in gameplay.
