Feherty is an American television series broadcast by Golf Channel, hosted by retired professional golfer and television analyst David Feherty. The program features one-on-one interviews between Feherty and notable figures in golf.

The program premiered on June 21, 2011, with an episode featuring an interview with Lee Trevino, aired as a part of Golf Channel's coverage of the U.S. Open,[1][2] which was the most-watched original series premiere in Golf Channel's history.[3]

The series was renewed in September 2015, as part of a deal that saw Feherty leave CBS to join NBC Sports and Golf Channel as an analyst and commentator.[4][5]

Reception[edit]

Feherty received positive reviews from critics. Scott Michaux of The Augusta Chronicle commented that the show "has all the ingredients to be a breakout hit", and praised its premiere episode featuring Lee Trevino for being "a poignant self-confession of Feherty's own sins [with] enough little bits and pieces of humor to keep the whole thing rollicking."[6]
