Behind The Failed Saudi Golf League Breakaway

Not too different to last year's football European Super League drama, the prestigious PGA Tour over the last couple of weeks have weathered a Saudi incursion - with the proposed Saudi Golf League, which had aimed to poach the best golfers under the PGA tour, reportedly offers larger purses, guaranteed payouts and 54-hole, no-cut tournaments. Sports journalist, Bob Holmes joins us on the programme - as we discuss sportswashing, breakaway leagues and what the PGA Tour could possibly do better.
