Biography

David Feherty was born in the seaside town of Bangor in Northern Ireland. He grew up with aspirations to become an opera singer, until he discovered he had the knack for hitting a golf ball. He jokes about his career change, "I was always interested in music from a very early age. But when I turned pro at age 17, I haven't sung a note since. Now, I only sing to punish my children."

Mr. Feherty enjoyed a very successful professional career, with 10 victories worldwide and over $3 million in prize money. He was a regular on the European Tour, with victories including the ICL International, the Italian Open, Scottish Open, South Africa PGA, BMW Open, Cannes Open, and Madrid Open. He captained the winning Irish team in the 1990 Alfred Dunhill Cup. And he played on the European Ryder Cup Team in 1991, an experience that rejuvenated his fervor for golf.

In 1997, David Feherty retired from professional golf when offered a position as a golf commentator for CBS Sports. "I always enjoyed talking more than playing, and now CBS is paying me for what I like to do most." His knowledge of the game and Tour experience give him instant credibility, and his quick wit and colorful personality add a new dimension to golf telecasts. His light-hearted approach to broadcasting is appreciated by golf fans and critics. Writers have called him "The Class Clown of Commentary" and according to a February 2007 Golf Digest survey, golf fans chose him as their favorite golf announcer.

Mr. Feherty's success extends beyond broadcasting. He is an accomplished author, currently writing an extremely popular monthly column (called SideSpin) for GOLF Magazine and a bi-weekly piece for their website, Golfonline.com. His books have become bestsellers--the fictional A Nasty Bit of Rough, and his collection of humorous articles, Somewhere in Ireland, A Village is Missing an Idiot. In August 2004, Rugged Land released his third book, David Feherty's Totally Subjective History of the Ryder Cup. Last summer, Rugged Land published his newest collection, An Idiot for All Seasons. He is currently working on an entertaining story about a fictional golf club in the United Kingdom with a zany cast of characters.

David Feherty also makes appearances at various clinics and outings throughout the year. In all of his work, his goal is to encourage people to remember that golf is fun. "I want to entertain people. If I can't make them laugh, I want to make them smile."
