BILOXI, Miss. (Jan. 22, 2018) – With a sharp wit and offbeat style, professional golfer turned golf analyst, talk show host and sports broadcaster David Feherty has made a name for himself as one of the funniest and irreverent personalities in golf.

A writer and broadcaster with NBC Sports and Golf Channel, Feherty was born in Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland. He became a professional golfer in 1976 and spent most of his playing career in Europe, where he won five times and finished in the top 10 twice in the European Tour’s Order of Merit. He spent 1994 and 1995 playing mainly on the PGA Tour with his best result being a second place finish at the 1994 New England Classic. Feherty represented Ireland in international competition and captained the victorious 1990 Alfred Dunhill Cup team. He also played for Europe on the 1991 Ryder Cup team.
In 1997, Feherty retired from the tours and became an on-course reporter and golf analyst. The first episode of Feherty debuted in 2011 as the most-watched premiere for an original series in Golf Channel history. Over the span of five seasons, Feherty has welcomed a variety of guests on his Golf Channel show, including golf-loving personalities like former President Bill Clinton, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, five-time NBA MVP Bill Russell, comedic genius Larry David, actors Samuel L. Jackson and Don Cheadle. In 2014, Feherty was nominated for a 2014 Emmy Award – “Outstanding Sports Personality, Studio Host.”
Feherty has been dubbed “one of the funniest men in the game” by Yahoo! Sports. Similarly, the Feherty series has received rave reviews, having been described as “a cross between Oprah Winfrey and Johnny Carson” by The New York Times.
In 2014, Feherty decided to take his act on the road and travel across North America for his new live show Feherty – Live Off Tour. His cutting edge style is full of great stories from behind the scenes.
