    Some time after I upgraded to Oreo 8.0, the PGA Tour app I had started crashing a lot. So, I uninstalled it, thinking I would install a fresh version of the app. Unfortunately, that app did not and does not exist in the Play Store for Pixel C even with the system update to 8.1. I then tried to side load the app from the PGA Tour site, but they said my "...device is not compatible".

    Who's at fault here.... Google, whose Pixel C has some occasional page rendering problems... or the PGA Tour folks with their app?

    No one is actually "at fault". The app is listed as having been written by the PGA. I doubt that they have software developers working for them, so they probably hired some outside development company to develop the app for them. The problem, and the blame if you have to assign blame to someone, is that the PGA is a sports business, it's not supposed to know that as new versions of Android come out, the app has to be rewritten to work with both existing and new versions of Android. So someone (who wouldn't be expected to know) didn't check that the app was updated properly to run on your phone on 8.0. Try emailing them at mobile@pgatourhq.com and letting them know that there's at least one phone that their app won't run on now. (It's listed as compatible with my Pixel 2 on 8.1, so they did update it recently. (But if you go to https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...m.tour.pgatour, you'll see that you're not the only one with problems - it seems that it now crashes on a lot of devices.)

    Thanks, Rukbat. I'll try the email route, I guess, but in a 2016 I wrote a Play Store review of the PGA Tour app using my Pixel C w/ Marshmallow 6.0 since the app wasn't working too well. Had some problems too when I updated the tablet to Nougat. Now it doesn't work at all with Oreo. I don't have much confidence that the PGA folks will ever write an app version that works on my Pixel C. Sigh.
