The wit of 14-year CBS Sports veteran David Feherty will be featured in Golf Channel through a prime-time, all-new series dubbed as “Feherty”.
Feherty, which will debut during the week of June 20, is still in production.
The series is Golf Channel’s first original series since it became a member of the NBC Sports Group as a result of last January’s Comcast-NBCUniversal transaction.
The 12-part series will include stories and interviews with well-known personalities from various niche including politics, sports and entertainment.
Feherty’s candour, knowledge of golf and propensity to say what is on his mind at any time has made the Irishman popular. He became more popular as an author, columnist and commentator off the course.
He has worked as an on-course reporter for CBS Sports for over 300 tournaments including the PGA Championships and the Masters.
Aside from his monthly column in Golf Magazine, Feherty is also the author of four books namely “A Nasty Bit of Rough,” “Somewhere in Ireland a Village Is Missing an Idiot,” “An Idiot for All Seasons,” and “David Feherty’s Totally Subjective History of the Ryder Cup.”
Aside from the series, Feherty will also be a contributing analyst during the live coverage of the biggest events in golf by Golf Channel.
“This show is something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’m glad it’s found a home at Golf Channel,” Feherty said. “I’m really overjoyed, so much so that I may have to cheer down, rather than up. I think I’m tri-polar.”
Journalists have praised Feherty on and off course.
“You don’t have a conversation with Feherty, You listen. You laugh. You drink in his ramblings and chuckle. The player-turned-CBS analyst is funny, irreverent and positively brilliant.” Golf columnist Melanie Hauser said on PGATOUR.com.
