EA Sports PGA Tour was released on April 7, 2023 for players all around the world. While the game is already pretty popular, it has received a mixed response from the community.

EA Sports PGA Tour Challenges not working

It seems that after the latest update, Challenges in EA Sports PGA Tour are not working or tracking players’ progress (1,2,3,4,5). Even after completing the missions multiple times, gamers are getting nothing in return.


According to reports, Challenges no longer give credits or stars for the tasks that players complete. Even when they track progress correctly, the rewards just don’t show up.

the concept of challenges is cool and all. But if they dont register the stars during them and i dont get credit for doing them, whats the point?

The update today broke all The Challenges. It won’t award any stars!

The issue does not affect a specific Challenge either. Reports indicate that almost all Challenges are currently broken. Affected gamers have taken to social media platforms like Twitter and Reddit to express their concerns.

Some are criticizing EA for releasing an update without proper testing. Players are also reporting freezing and lagging-related issues that hinder their experience of an otherwise fun game.

Official acknowledgment

Fortunately, it seems that EA Sports PGA Tour developers are aware of the issue where Challenges are not working or tracking progress. The team is already working on fixing it.


As there is no workaround for this bug at the moment, players can only wait for the developers to come up with a permanent fix. We’ll keep an eye on this matter and update this story to reflect noteworthy information.
