The Golf Channel’s David Feherty has been hosting the Emmy-nominated talk show Feherty since 2011. Born in Bangor, County Down in Northern Ireland, Feherty dropped out of high school at 17 to become a golf pro. He went on to win 10 European Tour and world events including a Ryder Cup victory in 1991, dubbed The War by The Shore.
Feherty retired from professional golf and began work as an analyst and reporter for CBS Sports in 1996. Feherty has written six books including the bestsellers, A Nasty Bit of Rough and Somewhere in Ireland a Village is Missing an Idiot. In 2006 Feherty publicly admitted that he had a long struggle with depression and alcohol. Now a U.S. citizen, the father of 5, established the Feherty’s Troops First Foundation , an organization devoted to the care of wounded U.S. soldiers.
