Easy fix when you have the error message: Video card not officially supported and not enough video card memory and direct x error.
( That is when you installed TW08 on windows 10 or windows 11 or windows 8 )

Download the attached zipfile, and extract or unzip it first.
Now you will see two files named:
DDraw.dll
TW2008.exe

Now copy both files, and paste both files into the bin folder of the TW08 game installation!
The bin folder is located here: C:\Program Files (x86)\EA Sports\Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 08\bin

So you have to paste both files in the bin folder of TW08.
When you are asked to overwrite TW2008.exe......say: Yes

After that it should be possible to start the game.
You can also try to remove the TW08 disc, it should also work without the TW08 disc inserted in your DVD drive.

This is the most awesome thing ever! Ok, maybe a stretch, but I can''t tell you how great it is not to have to change the RAM back forth. Thanks so much Pat!

I second that much better way of overcoming the issue of keep switching Ram , Sally my partner got herself a new laptop and she loves the game to, we did this new fix and ran right away and no need to have the disk in which with fewer and fewer machines having DVD drives saves getting an external too. Many thanks Pat from both Sally and myself.

Aloha, in this case I think technology is too much for an older game, no error message, just won't load.

You probably already tried to run the game in compatibility mode:
Right click TW05 icon....and choose: properties...compatibility...and check box: run this program in compatibility mode.......and in the list select: windows xp ( service pack 3 )
