Feherty is toast.


Recommended Posts

Just read this, and thought belonged in the ProTour section as, AFAIK, all his visitors were pro golfers.  At least golfers of some ilk coz maybe Prez W, or Prez Clinton got air time with him.

Anyway, i did not care for his style.  Very affected, IMO.

Yep, discussed on here since it happened.  Along with all the fluff which goes along with the nature of the show and what's expected, I guess, if you bother to watch there are some incredible moments

I strongly disagree. David is the very definition of genuine.  Flawed. But genuine. And he has a natural knack for pulling the best out of people.  Watch his Matthew mcconaughey interview.  If you don

I think a lot of people forgot how good a player Feherty was in his prime. He had a career I would call better than a journeyman pro.   5 European Tour wins 3 Sunshine Tour wins

Watched the Woosie episode the other day, it was really good.  Feherty can be kind of overdone at times himself, but the meat of the episodes was really well done and gave great insight into the human sides that we rarely ever see of some of these people.  Besides actual golf, it was about the only entertaining thing about GC lately, I have no idea what they are doing and they don't seem to either.

I think I am coming to these from a slightly different perspective to the other posters. I should say, it was only recently that his Interviews began being shown here in the UK, so I have never seen too many of them and it was only the most recent shows that I was able to get a view of. I watched them but never really took to them.

 

My view was that he tried to play to the camera a little, there seemed to be more attempts at style rather than substance but that may have been partly due to the interview subjects - Koepka, for example, just doesn’t seem to be that interesting a bloke (which is absolutely fine btw, no criticism at all, just an observation and I am sure that Koepka would say the same about me) which meant that Feherty had to try and add something to the show. 

 

Glad to hear that Feherty will still be part of the coverage. He does bring an element which is just unattainable to most, if not all, of his colleagues.

I agree with some of the  sentiments expressed about Feherty's showy and egocentric style. I never really cared for it. It was all a bit forced and gave me the impression that he was trying far too hard to be funny, very much in the mould of Gary McCord.

 

That said, he invariably entered an interview well prepared; very much like Michael Parkinson, with a solid underpinning of knowlege of the subject, and of their life and career, and a battery of questions that aren't the usual banal interview fodder, and he had the ability to move with the flow of a conversation and improvise depending upon the way the subject took the interview. He also had that Graham Norton-like ability to bring out the best in a subject; to put them at ease, get them talking, and to draw out some interesting tales and anecdotes that many others couldn't. Or maybe they were simply plied with drink.

 

As MattyO says, it's good to hear that he'll still play a part in coverage. In small does he's entertaining, and he occasionally chips in with an Alliss or Mark James-like bon mot that's comedy gold.

There have been many instances where he's tried to be too funny.  It's his way and it is what it is.  That said, he interviewed people extremely well.  I can't fault him for that, and he had a great run.

Lol. Yep. I figured.  No doubt some sort of a quip about how it was anointed by Twitter first.

Always enjoyed the show but the amount of commercial breaks became unbearable to me.  To make things worse the way they edited the sections going into breaks/coming out of breaks were all previews/summaries so the 1 hour show turns out to be maybe 25 minutes max.

Great interviewer but I prefer Peter Kessler back in the day since Kessler doesn't try to make a fool out of himself for a cheap laugh from us.

 

Too bad Arnold fired him.

As mentioned, he had a good run. A decade in today's television world is outstanding. I enjoyed DF whenever he interviewed someone I was interested in. Can't wait to see what fills this hour in prime time...🥱

Arnie fired him for embarrassing him on TV.  Instead of taking the high road, he embarrassed the co-founder of the Golf Channel.  He probably should have been a little more humble.  Maybe he was right, but that was not the place to have a debate.

I'll never forget that interview.  I was just 2-3 months of starting golf and watched The Golf Channel 24/7 back in those days (when it was very watchable back then).  Kessler was borderline berating him on National TV for endorsing the Callaway ERC Driver (which was deemed illegal back then (and still is)).

 

Never bite the hand that feeds you.

I could never figure out why exactly he did that!
