How to Sign Up for the PGA of America eSeries in EA Sports PGA Tour
To sign up for the PGA of America eSeries, you need to follow simple steps to register, compete, and win. Below is an in-depth explanation of how to enter the eSeries competition.
How to Register for the PGA of America eSeries in EA Sports PGA Tour
Players can register for the PGA of America by logging onto the EA site and selecting the console of their choice. On the EA website, players must scroll all the way down until they see an option for PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S. The first part of the registration is to own a copy of EA Sports PGA Tour. So if you own one, you are already halfway there.
Challenges differ between Xbox and PlayStation. If you register now and are one of the first 1,500 players to register for the eSeries, you’ll earn some Reward Points in-game. Once you’ve registered your console, you’ll be instantly ready to compete.
How Will the Tournament Be Structured for the PGA of America eSeries?
The structure of the PGA of America eSeries tournament will consist of three rounds running from October 7 to October 24. In the opening matches, only the top 32 players from each qualifier will progress to the next round, the Champs Qualifiers. This first set of qualifiers occurs on October 7th, 9th, and 14th.
Following the round qualifiers in the Champs Qualifiers, the list will be cut down even further into a smaller list. It will be a single weekend of golf played on multiple courses over the weekend of October 15. There will be 8 groups, with 12 golfers per group. Only the winner of each group plus two wildcard players (non-winners) with the best scores will proceed to the tournament’s final round. The game mode that will be played in this round will be a Stroke Play Tour.
The finale to the PGA of America series will be a 10-player event titled the Championship Event, which takes place on October 24. There is prize money and Reward Points involved, and players who finish within the top four will get a portion of the $4,250 in prize money.
If you don’t know how to play Stroke Play, you can try it out in Quick Play to see what it’s about and how the rules work.
