Feherty Behind-the-Scenes

By Golf Channel DigitalApril 27, 2012, 3:21 pm

We are almost half way through the second season of the Feherty show and David Feherty keeps doing what he does best… entertain us with his zany and quirky sense of humor, while interviewing some of the most interesting athletes, actors and business professionals.  In case you missed any of the fun during the season, don’t worry, here are some highlights of the most memorable moments thus far.

How telling and foreshadowing is it that Bubba Watson told Feherty in an interview that aired the week of this year’s Masters that playing Augusta National suits him and his playing style because he knows how to shape the ball around the many trees?   Plus, it never gets old to check out photos of Watson and Feherty riding around in the General Lee car.

Ever wonder what it is like to be a famous LPGA Tour player and a college student? Well Feherty finds out when Michelle Wie takes him on a tour of her college campus and her apartment.  Check out behind-the-scenes photos from their interview of the Stanford University campus.

Feherty sat down with Ken Venturi, former PGA TOUR player and golf broadcaster to talk about a wide variety of topics.  Learn which was Venturi’s most memorable Masters telecast; which famous golfer he was friends with in the military and why he was afraid to be a broadcaster.  Check out behind-the-scenes photos that captured every minute of Feherty’s interview with Venturi.

Feherty got a chance to spend some quality time with LPGA great Annika Sorenstam in her Orlando home.  Not only did they talk golf, but they hit the lake to do some jetskiing and tubing, as well as spend some time in the kitchen doing a little cooking.  In case you wanted Sorenstam’s famous Swedish Meatball recipe she made with Feherty during the show, now is your chance.   Below is the recipe.  Enjoy!

Rose leads halted Indonesian Masters; Snedeker WDs

By Associated PressDecember 15, 2017, 2:04 pm

JAKARTA, Indonesia - Justin Rose held a three-stroke lead at the Indonesian Masters when bad weather stopped play Friday during the second round.

The Englishman, who shot a 10-under 62 on Thursday, had completed 13 holes and was 5 under on the day at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club course.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat (64) was in second place.

Brandt Snedeker withdrew wit on the 11th hole at 2 under for the day after shooting an opening 72.

There was no reason given for his withdrawal, but the American has been affected by a rib-sternum injury for most of the season. Ranked 51st in the world, he flew to Jakarta looking to move inside the top 50 by the end of the year and ensure a spot in next year's Masters.

Newsmaker of the Year: No. 2, Donald Trump

By Golf Channel DigitalDecember 15, 2017, 1:00 pm

Even away from the White House, President Donald Trump generated plenty of headlines this year.

Trump’s first year in office didn’t dim his enthusiasm for the game, as he made splashy appearances at two big events, tweeted about golf to his more than 44 million followers, teed it up with some of the sport’s biggest stars, including Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Lexi Thompson, and fired a few eyebrow-raising scores. Logging more than 75 rounds since his inauguration, the 3-handicap has only bolstered his reputation as the best golfing president, particularly after his alleged 73 with Sen. Lindsey Graham.

None of his appearances created a bigger stir than when he attended the U.S. Women’s Open. Despite protests and calls for the USGA to move its premier women’s event from Trump Bedminster – the president reportedly threatened to sue – his weekend there went off without incident, as Trump watched the action and hosted players in his private box near the 15th green.

Full list of 2017 Newsmakers of the Year

Despite his controversial rhetoric on a variety of national issues, Trump has remained a staunch supporter of women’s golf, and he became the first sitting president to attend the U.S. Women’s Open.

An honorary chairman of the Presidents Cup, Trump also flew to Liberty National for the biennial team event, where he presented the trophy to the U.S. team and dedicated the victory to the hurricane victims in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.

In late November, amid tweets about the national anthem, Turkey, Egypt and Time Magazine, Trump announced that he was playing a round in South Florida with Woods and world No. 1 Dustin Johnson.

Yes, that too became a headline, just like everything else Trump did in 2017.

Spieth, Thomas headline winter break trip to Cabo

By Grill Room TeamDecember 15, 2017, 1:05 am

Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth. Really good at golf. Really good at vacationing.

With #SB2K18 still months away, Thomas and Spieth headlined a vacation to Cabo San Lucas, and this will shock you but it looks like they had a great time.

Spring break veteran Smylie Kaufman joined the party, as did Thomas' roommate, Tom Lovelady, who continued his shirtless trend.

The gang played all the hits, including shoeless golf in baketball jerseys and late nights with Casamigos tequila.

In conclusion, it's still good to be these guys.
