PGA TOUR 2K21 Patch Available Today, Fixes Swing Glitch on Xbox Series X - Patch Notes

The latest PGA TOUR 2K21 game update is scheduled to arrive today on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The patch notes mention the swing glitch, which is seen on the Xbox Series X, has been resolved. I’m seeing a small delay on swings when playing on the PlayStation 5, but I don’t see a mention of a fix there.

2K states the PC, Nintendo Switch and Stadia patches are set to arrive within the next few days.

Here are the patch notes.

  • Addressed reported concerns of a swing glitch that may occur when playing on Xbox Series X (Xbox patch only)
  • Club attributes in the Clubhouse Pass will now display properly
  • Addressed reports that the difficulty settings may not save correctly in Online Societies.

  1. For the first time ever I’m actually seeing a few swing glitches/slowdowns/stutters on PS4.
    Had a few in my last round, but who knows, maybe my controller is telling me it’s over.
    I played a round at someone's really well done version of The Country Club in Brookline, MA on PS4 today, and much of the round featured slowdown and stuttering. I assumed it was because the course features a ton of planting and tall grass everywhere. Seems I might want to keep an eye out for further frame rate problems.

    Played the same course, definitely seems like the tall grass according to the designer. Great course, so the stuttering was a bummer.

    For sure...and it sounds like someone played it on their older Xbox One, and had the same issues. So it appears to be a result of the planting.
    It could just be me putting the game down for a bit and then coming back to whatever they patched but man the swing feels super wonky now and I’m lacking any semblance of tempo I had before they changed things. Thankfully didn’t get any putting glitches but numerous times I took the club back on a long shot and it just wouldn’t register my downswing. I’d just sit there doing a backswing and then it would just reset.
    I’m on Xbox series S.

    I'm not hearing this about the tempo from any of the Series X guys, post patch. You say you weren't having tempo problems before the patch on the Series S? I want to make sure... when you said in your second sentence that you took the club back on a long shot and it wouldn't register your downswing, that was prior to the patch? It does register your downswing now?
    I've played the game on both the XBox One X and PC version now since the Dec. 10th patch, and I can't tell any difference in either of them. I did do a new swing calibration on both versions since the patch, before trying to play a round however. Have you tried a new swing calibration since the patch? If not, it might help.

    My bad for not being clearer. Taking the club back and not registering on the downswing is post patch. It was relatively fine pre patch aside from a few times here and there. I “upgraded” from a day one Xbox one where the game ran perfectly fine to a Xbox series S where the issue popped up from time to time and now to post patch where it’s nearly every time I take driver.
    Yes, I tried the swing calibrations and still the problem persists.

    Is it exclusive to the driver, or just more common with it? Has it happened on a pitch, splash, flop, or chip shot?
    I can't recall reading a post patch report from a Series S owner right now, but I'm searching for one to see if the problem you're describing is common.
    Does this game look better on the X series X ?  I have it on the Xbox One but haven't been able to buy the XSX yet. Just wondering if it looks better, not that it looks bad on the One, just curious.

    More common with driver, maybe 6-7 times in the one round I played after not playing for a few weeks. Obviously this could’ve been just my issue and my question was basically for others that play more than I do. I just turned the game off after that and went to something else, so I’ve got a small sample size. I’ll fire it up later and see if I can replicate the issue or if I was just screwing up but I mean pulling the stick back and pushing it forward shouldn’t be as difficult as that one round I played made it seem.

    I found this post from a Series S owner who said he had occasional problems initiating a downswing. This is from the TGC Tours forum. I'll link it so you can read it in its full context: https://tgctours.proboards.com/post/611513

    Popped the game back in today and I gotta come back and say that the issue appeared to be on me. The sensitivity I guess I was just not used to after having put the game down for awhile and I fixed the issue by not pulling all the way down on the stick for the backswing, instead just easing it down to get it initiated and then pushing it forward on the downswing.
    I guess my fingers were so used to the flick flick style swing of the last few iterations and I didn’t think to ease back a little. Game is running smooth and now that the putting glitch is gone I feel confident that I can continue on in the career mode. Just wrapped up FedEx cup championship and on to season two.

    Good to read this report. I'm glad it's working better for you post patch.
    I just got a surprising update on the status of my XBox Series X order from Walmart. It was originally shown as "Arrives by January 8th". I just got a tracking update from Fed-Ex saying it will be delivered before the end of the day on the 22nd!?
    This latest patch might actually mean something to me now! :) I still don't think the auto-HDR and lower latency controller input is going to be enough to pull me away from the PC version, on which I'm able to play the game at 60 FPS... on a gaming PC that's at least 20% less powerful than the Series X!?
