David Feherty Show's Ten-Year Run Was A Great One | Dog Leg News

About the author

Tom Edrington

Tom Edrington spent the first 10 years of his misguided youth as a sports writer for the Tampa Tribune. His career brought him face to face with many of sports greatest stars -- Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Muhammad Ali, Don Shula, countless Hall of Fame NFL stars, more PGA Tour players than he can count. In 1980 he was honored by the Golf Writers Association of America for writing the best news story that year, his coverage of Jack Nicklaus' U.S. Open victory at Baltusrol. Today, 36 years later, golf is still a great part of his life, thanks to competitive playing days and the wonderful people he has met on this fabulous journey.

    Yup, sad indeed. What’s next? More reruns of past golf tournaments and old golf movies?

    Sure, why not? With the Covid crisis and problems it has created, lack of spectators, and seemingly an endless stretch of reruns of everything golf on the Golf Channel, seems like just the time to give the boot to one of the few out of the box golf hours around.

    I was lucky enough to catch Feherty live a couple of years ago, he was really good. His quirkiness and self awareness added to his charm.

      RM: One of my neighbors caught one of his live shows over at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater — said it was totally enjoyable….Love Feherty’s quick wit, there’s no one like him and yes, the Golf Channel is becoming a lesser place,isn’t it?

    It makes sense considering they have not been able to go around interviewing old guys.

    I was usually annoyed by his intros but he was undeniably great in the interviews and some of the acting bits were hilarious.

    Overall it will be missed because the landscape looks pretty bare on GC. Of course it could return, as have other shows on GC.
