Is there any fix yet?
As of now, there is no permanent solution to this irritating problem. This is one of many issues that the players have been facing since the game’s release and just like most issues in EA games, a fix for it doesn’t exist yet. But, on the discussion page of this issue’s thread, one of the EA’s community managers has asked for the dxdiags of the players who are encountering the problem. Hopefully, it will get acknowledged by the developers and they will eventually fix it. Meanwhile, there are some general workarounds that you can implement to get rid of this issue at your end.
Verify or Repair game files: The method of repairing the game files makes sure that there are no missing or corrupted game files present. To perform this process, go to the game’s library in EA or Steam. Then, head to the game’s page or properties and look for the option that says, “Scan and Repair” or “Verify Integrity of Game files”. Click on it, and let the repair process start.
Use default GPU Settings: If you have tweaked the GPU settings to play this game, for instance, if you have visited the NVIDIA Control Panel to tweak some graphics settings for EA Sports PGA Tour, then make sure to set those settings back to default.
Use lower Graphics Settings: If you are using high graphics settings to play the game, then it can cause rendering issues in games. Therefore, make sure to set your Graphics Settings to low and then restart the game to see if the issue is resolved.
Update Graphics Drivers: Make sure you are not using an outdated version of your GPU Drivers. For updating the GPU Drivers, go to the manufacturer’s website, enter the name of the model you are using, and install the latest version. After this, try launching the game, and the issue should be fixed (hopefully).
