Launched in 2014, Feherty – Live Off Tour is described by Golf Digest as, “uncensored, unhinged, and worth the price of admission. It really was stupendous!”
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, “David Feherty was uproariously funny. It was two hours of zaniness and madcap story-telling. People were coming out of their seats with laughter!”
Hailing from Northern Ireland, Feherty turned professional in 1976 and spent most of his playing career in Europe, where he won five times and finished in the Top 10 twice in the European Tour’s Order of Merit, placing tenth in 1989 and eighth in 1990. He spent 1994 and 1995 playing mainly on the PGA Tour in the U.S. His best result on the tour was a second place finish at the 1994 New England Classic. Feherty represented Ireland in international competition and captained the victorious 1990 Alfred Dunhill Cup team. Feherty played for Europe on the 1991 Ryder Cup team.
In 1997, Feherty retired from the tours and became an on-course reporter and golf analyst. Feherty is a contributor to Golf Magazine and has his own column in the back of the magazine called “Sidespin.” He also is The New York Times and Booksense bestselling author of four books: A Nasty Bit of Rough, Somewhere in Ireland a Village Is Missing an Idiot, An Idiot for All Seasons, and David Feherty’s Totally Subjective History of the Ryder Cup. On June 21, 2011, Feherty premiered his own weekly primetime talk show called Feherty on the Golf Channel.
