Fixes For PGA Tour Error Code 5

Note: Before trying any given suggestions we advise you to check for any pending game updates. If there are any pending updates, then make sure to install them and then check for the error again.

Fix 1: Try Removing Any Connected Device

If the game is up to date with its latest version then try removing any connected devices or any USBs from the console. Once done try restarting your console and then check for the error again.

Next, check and make sure that your NAT type is open. Below we have shared the steps to check if your Nat type is open or not.

Fix 3: Try Pressing The Xbox Button

Note: This is not a permanent solution but this will do the trick temporarily.

If you are playing on the Xbox, then try pressing the Xbox button from the controller while the spinning icons are on the screen.

We don’t know exactly what is happening but in our research, we have found that pressing the Xbox button while the circle is trying to save is somehow triggering the game into saving. So if you are on the Xbox then you should try this.

Fix 4: Try Restarting The Game As Soon As Error Happens

The next workaround is to restart the game as soon as the error happens.

This is also another temporary workaround that will save some of your time by saving the holes you have played up to the point. Otherwise, you have to play the hole that won’t count.
