Golf Channel announces new series with David Feherty


ORLANDO, Fla. – David Feherty, one of the most unique personalities in sports, is bringing his wit to Golf Channel with the new, primetime series “Feherty,” currently in production and scheduled to debut the week of June 20.

“Feherty” is the first original Golf Channel series created since the golf cable network became a member of the NBC Sports Group following the Comcast-NBCUniversal transaction in January.

No topic is off limits in this 12-part series which will share revealing interviews with well-known personalities from sports to entertainment to politics, along with unique stories and anecdotes from Feherty’s brilliant yet zany mind.

Feherty has made a name for himself in the sports world for his unabashed candor, extensive knowledge of the game, and his propensity to say whatever is on his mind. A native of Northern Ireland and a former European Tour and PGA Tour professional, he’s become more famous off the golf course as a golf commentator, columnist and author. His career as an on-course reporter and interviewer for CBS Sports has spanned more than 300 tournaments.

As part of his new Golf Channel relationship, Feherty also will serve as a contributing analyst during Golf Channel’s “Live From” coverage.

“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.”

The series is being shot both in studio and on location with interviews taking place across the country.
