EA’s bringing back an OG while removing all of the bugs — or so we hope.

EA Sports PGA Tour Updates Coming

Road to the Masters looks to be making some noteworthy improvements that, in my opinion, should only increase the fun and the experience. Let’s look at them as we detail the most exciting new features coming soon.

3-Click Swing

The OG 3-Click Swing will return for EA Sports and be introduced to Road to the Masters later in April. A large population of the PGA Tour community wanted the popular golfing mechanics added to the game, and they’ll be getting what they want.

Once installed, it will offer a second option for those not into the analogue stick single-motion swinging mechanism. How it affects the Pure Strike and Fluid Swing Mechanics features is yet to be seen. Hopefully, it doesn’t take them away from it, as they are elements of the game with loads of potential.

Updates to Putting Grids

This update includes fixes and the addition of the green grid fading away following every put. The community pointed it out, and the dev team listened. It will allow for a better visual and end product when putting.

Fast Play

This new feature will unquestionably go down well with the public. Fast Play is a package allowing players to enable and disable cutscenes, player reactions, and more. Speeding up the game will make for a fun and better golf experience.
