Feherty Sayings

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 

Whether you love him or hate him, you have to admit that David Feherty comes up with some pretty good one liners.    Reading about a couple of his this week at the PGA made me think about listing some of his good ones - please add your own.

 

 

  • Referring to Rory's wrist injury:   "Fortunately he is 22 years old, so his right wrist should be the strongest muscle in his body"
  • Commenting on John Daly's pants:   "They're why the Hubble telescope is pointed away from the earth."
  • On Jim Furyk's swing:  "It looks like a man trying to kill a snake in a phone booth"
  • Also on Jim Furyk's swing:  "It looks like an octopus falling out of a tree"
  • "That one is so far right Michael Moore could make a documentary about it."
  • Describing Tommy Gainey's grip: "They look like two lobsters trying to mate."
  • At the Tavistock Cup:  "I am sorry Nick Faldo couldn't be here this week. He is attending the birth of his next wife."
  • At the Bridgestone, McCord commented "Does anyone wear a shirt tighter than Ishikawa?" and other announcer's added names "Villegas, Charles Howell III...."       Feherty added:  "Sometimes Phil does."
  • Commenting about VJ Singh's legendary practice sessions:  "He's hit more balls than Elton John's chin"
  • After eating some spicy food:  "There will be some yodeling going on when this re-enters the atmosphere"

LOL!

 

I remember watching coverage when Feherty said some of those lines...I can't help but laugh.

I think Gary McCord wished he were as witty as Feherty, but I can't stand him trying.

I'm actually reading "The Power of Positive Idiocy" right now by him, it's really just a collection of his articles at the back of Golf Magazine, but I'm surprised at even the stuff they let him publish a lot of the stuff he writes for the magazine haha. My mom will walk by and start laughing so hard she snorts half the time Feherty opens his mouth :P

On tiger woods--"He has the touch of a gay florist"

Wow, it's almost like Clambake compiled all the quotes from the golfwrx thread. b4_blushing.gif

love that guy - he has the greatest one liners in the sports world.      I remember when Rory had his big win & was way out in front & dropped a stroke ... he said, well Rory finally displayed an act of kindness towards his fellow competitors - LOL !!!

He is very funny and it's a refreshing change to the monotone announcers.  I really like his show too.

Feherty should remind Tiger of this

post #12 of 36
One he just said about a par putt by Keegan Bradley: "This one'll slide down the hill like a greased piglet."

I really like his occasional politically incorrect comments.  It's almost refreshing.  If nothing else, he spreads the "wealth" and isn't politically incorrect towards any one person or thing in particular.  I think I'll coin a new(?) phrase.....Unbiased Political Incorrectness.  You heard it here first....I think.

post #14 of 36

This is something I picked up somewhere a few years ago.  I don't know when the tournament was, but I'm thinking late 90's or so.

 

David Feherty on Tiger Woods

Ultimate peer respect...

 

"People have accused me of being so far up Tiger's arse that he can barely make a full swing, but I maintain that he is a special person. There's no one else on the planet who can do what he does or even think of doing what he does. I've often thought, instead of showing Tiger's reaction to a shot he's hit, we really should show the reaction of those around him."

 

But here is the next best thing.

 

"I'm walking down the 18th fairway at Firestone Country Club with Ernie Els and Tiger, who has popped up a three-wood about 40 yards behind Ernie into some wet, nasty, horrible, six-inch rough," Feherty says.  "Tiger's cursing and taking clumps out of Ohio with his three-wood. And, of course, we're not showing this on TV because we want to be able to interview him later. Ernie and I walk past Tiger's ball, and it is truly buried.

 

"Ernie is tied with Tiger and he's in the middle of the fairway. I'm standing with Ernie and my microphone is open. Ken Venturi [in the CBS booth] sends it to me and I say, 'Tiger's got 184 yards with two big red oaks overhanging the green. He's got absolutely nothing. With a stick of dynamite and a sand wedge I might be able to move this ball 50 yards.  Steve Williams [Woods' caddie] tells me [with a hand signal] that he's using a pitching wedge.' 

 

"Tiger takes his swing. Every muscle in his body is flung at the ball. It looks like he's torn his nutsack. The divot went as far as I could hit the ball. I've got my microphone at my mouth thinking, what the hell was that! The ball sails over the trees, lands behind the hole and backs up to about six feet from the flag. I open my microphone and Ernie turns and says, 'F*** me!'

 

"My producer comes on in my earpiece and says, 'Was that Ernie?' I say yes. He says, 'Fair enough.'

 

"I could have described that shot for 15 minutes and not done as good a job as Ernie did with two words. This is the second best player in the world talking, and you wanna know how good Tiger is? Ask Ernie Els."

Saw this on YouTube a while back. I think this refers to your post

oh yeah...thats a great shot....with that swing

post #17 of 36

I think Feherty is like the PGA tour version of Wayne Riley over here. Radar came up with a great one the other day, a golfer (cant remember who it was) played a pitch onto the green but played it poorly. He said 'and alas, that is now the call of the dead sheep, still you'

post #18 of 36

Wayne Riley is hilarious. The things he says off air are even better. He would chat away with the crowd between shots and say some hilarious things.
