Feherty is a Hit!

Feherty is a Human After All

I was really looking forward to seeing this and I missed the first show. But luckily I caught it when it was re-aired by the Golf Channel later in the week. I am really happy I did and I intend to watch every week. The Golf Channel has done it right with David Feherty ‘s show. This is not another gratuitous ride on a personality like Donald Trump, but a thoughtful, yet humorous romp through the human condition with golf as the backdrop. It is quirky yet informative, it is real and funny, and it is entertaining. It was a brilliant stroke to bring on Lee Trevino for the first show. He is such a delightful soul, and I learned some things about him I would otherwise not have known. (Semper fi Lee) One might think with Trevino and Feherty that it would be too much personality and they might clash, but David Feherty has been in this business long enough to know when to let the “horse run” and when to interject his humor and comment.

Feherty is More Than Golf

This is a show that it is not limited to the niche world of The Golf Channel, it would thrive on a major network channel. There is human interest and humor in it that transcends knowledge of golf – even though it’s central theme is obviously golf. Feherty brings his history of addiction, his resume as a professional golfer and golf analyst, and a lovable personality and sense of humor flavored with the slight edge of “I’ve been there, you’re not going to bullshit me” thrown in. Feherty has risen from some depths most of us could not and he is now giving at every turn. From working with the Troops First Foundation (internal link) to visiting them in country, he has become an American in every sense of the word and lives it passionately. His show could have been too silly, but thankfully it is not. Feherty is just the right mix of fun and lore…and personal example.

Make Time to Watch Feherty

Airing at 9 PM on Tuesday nights on The Golf Channel, Feherty has to become a favorite of golfers. And, as I alluded to above, the show has great entertainment value to non-golfers as well. Unfortunately, I am not sure how many non-golfers will tune in…perhaps through its ‘affiliation’ with NBC, they will advertise outside of The Golf Channel (they may be already, but I am not aware) to draw the folks in. At any rate, if you have not yet seen Feherty, tune in – I promise you will be entertained.
