Despite being one of the better new features added to EA Sports PGA Tour, the Pro Pass will not be present this season and in this write-up, we are going to find out why that is. Let’s get into the discussion of why the Pro Pass was left behind.
Why Has the Pro Pass Been Paused in EA Sports PGA Tour?
There has been no reason given as to why the Pro Pass has been paused. EA has only indicated that the Pro Pass was abandoned this season and will make a strong return next season, Season 9.
If one has to speculate, this could boil down to the lack of events happening in golf and all of the gameplay upgrades and improvements made by EA to PGA Tour. At the time of writing this, there is only the Hero World Challenge happening between November 30 and December 3.
Running straight after the Hero World Challenge will be the final event before the end of the year, the PGA Tour Q-School presented by Korn Ferry. The tournament will start on December 14 and end on December 17. This could be one of the reasons that there are no events for rewards. Because real-time events affect the seasonal updates, there could be too little content for a Pro Pass.
The other reason could be because of the new reward system. The dev team could be figuring out a new way to pair the latest gameplay features, the Pro Pass, and rewards.
Is the EA Sports PGA Tour Pro Pass Worth the Wait?
Yes, the EA Sports PGA Tour Pro Pass is worth the wait. Without it in the game, it makes it difficult to earn additional goods such as apparel, equipment, and specs. All of these will improve your pro’s golf game or style when walking down the greens.
The Pro Pass was introduced to PGA Tou during Season 5’s major update and was a welcomed addition to the game. It gave golfers more motivation to log in every day and try to finish the daily and weekly challenges.
That’s all, folks! That’s everything we know about why the Pro Pass has been paused for this season and will only be returning next season. If you’re struggling with the Swing Meter Mechanics, you can switch to the 3-Click Swing in EA Sports PGA Tour.
