The LIV tour's 1st U.S. event is underway. How this impacts the future of the PGA

Legends like Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer helped make the tour popular, and then Tiger Woods took it to previously unimagined heights.

The Show spoke with Adam Woodard of Golf Week about the LIV tour and its possible impact.
