Featuring Emmy-nominated host (and 1991 Ryder Cup participant) David Feherty, the special will include Harrington and Stricker as featured guests to preview the event through dedicated segments alongside Feherty. The show additionally will include a feature on Whistling Straits as a Ryder Cup venue, provide a “tale of the tape” comparison of the two respective team captains, and offer a look at the shifting balance of power in the biennial international competition.
