It took an Irishman to bring together two of the most famous American athletes this week.
During Monday night's taping of the Ryder Cup-themed "Feherty Live," host David Feherty was joined by swimmer Michael Phelps as well as Michael Jordan, Phelps' idol, who remains somewhat popular in the Chicago area.
Taped in front of a packed house at the Tivoli Theater in Downers Grove, Ill., the one-hour special will air Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on Golf Channel and will also include appearances by former Ryder Cup captains Paul Azinger, Sam Torrance and Lanny Wadkins.
Earlier this summer, it was announced that Phelps would be the next student on "The Haney Project" when the show returns for a fifth season on Golf Channel in February 2013.
