Golf Channel Cancels Feherty


Recommended Posts

That's too bad. I liked the show when I watched it. On the other hand, I didn't watch it all that much. This describes a lot of Golf Channel's programming, haha. 

I feel like the show would have been better if it was just a few sessions a year with really high profile guys. I was not interested in most of the interviews he did, especially as the show aged.

I agree. I didn’t care much about the interviews he did with politicians or athletes from other sports or whatever about golf, and it was clear he ran out of golfers he wanted to talk to much.

I don’t know. 150 shows was a lot, really.

I liked the show will miss it but it had a good run and things do get old. I hope with all the changes they end up having some decent original programming not just golf central and golf today.

I agree, 10 years is a good long time.  I noticed in the original press release that he wasn't "cancelled", just not renewed.  And his remarks don't make it sound like he's particularly upset.  I've enjoyed the shows, I like Feherty, but I'm not upset that he won't be making any more of his shows.

Odd... this isn't really "New" news. I recall seeing the last show a few months ago when it was noted that that was the last show. Why is it all of a sudden a "thing"? 

Maybe it's just a paperwork thing and it was released to make it "official"? IF all those who say they watched it all the time and loved the show, where were the posts about it months ago?

One of the few shows I watched on the GC. It seemed like it was a getting a little tired the past season or so but (as has been mentioned above) didn't really care for the non-golfer shows as much. Probably only so many interviews to go around? On a related note (or maybe a new topic), I've tried twice to watch "Golf Today". Wow. Awful.

I thought I remembered that too, but I think the plans were slightly different at the time.

I think he was going to be moving to a new place, or doing something differently formatted… something.

Wow, didn't realize he got 150 shows in! Not bad. I have watched maybe 20. Will go back and watch at least a few more at some point.

I will also miss Feherty on the GC as I enjoyed his interviewing style splashed with a hint of comedy. 10 years and 150ish interviews is a great run. At some point, you just run out of people interesting enough to interview that will garner an audience.

If you can find it on demand, don't miss the episode with Tom Watson.

He had a great run, and some cracking interviews. but also some clunkers. It was probably a good thing for everyone, including Feherty, to move on.

    • Day 72 (6/15/21) - Worked on tempo with my putter and a metronome.
    • Three rounds to catch up on: 5/12: Played Hillandale from the whites. Not a good start, +5 after 3 holes, but I parred the tough fourth hole and battled back to shoot 44 on the front and 42 on the back for 86. I was pretty happy after the poor start. Irons were spectacular, but short game…not so much. 5/14: Yesterday it was back to Umstead Pines, and we decided to play the blues. I played a solid front nine, 44. Three pars and two doubles. My bro played one of the best nines of his life. After a triple on the first hole, he parred the second and then bogeyed in. 47 for him! We moved on to the back. I slipped a little to start the back, but I righted the ship again and parred the last two holes for 45 on the back and 89 total. How I shot 89 is beyond me, because my whole game felt shaky after about the sixth hole. 5/15: I had a feeling before we played that I would go low, and I did. I was +1 through 7, and while I doubled 8 after an unlucky bounce on my tee shot, I rolled in about a ten footer for birdie on 9 to shoot a two-over 38 on the front. And after 12, I was still only +3, having started par-bogey-par.  Thoughts started creeping in, and I doubled 13, 14 and 16 with a three putt bogey on 15. +10 going into 17. I caught a horrific bounce on my approach and had to settle for bogey, then I parred the last hole to shoot 45 on the back and an 83 total. Unlike the last two rounds, short game was on point today. I hit nine fairways, and two of my misses were by no more than a yard. I’ve got an early tee time tomorrow morning with a buddy, and we’re planning on playing a handicap match. More on that tomorrow!
    • Day 1 backswing work yesterday at Golf Evolution with @iacas   Day 2. Back home.  Did mirror work drills this evening.
    • Day 112.  Morning I snuck out to the putting green;  after warm-up, I did the 4' drill.  Must have had a harder break this time, took me 18 putts to finish.  Not bad, not great.  Got home, got some work done, went back to practice (the rest is at home).  I did a dozen chip shots with my 54 (well, a friend's 54 I'm thinking of trying for a few rounds) and then did 20 full shots with the 7-iron (slow, as I'm practicing something).  I think adjustments after the video the other day have helped to change the picture, and I want to go confirm this tomorrow if I can.
    • How do I come back from a 72 last time out and my best round of the year? How else.... putrid effort for 9 holes of league night. Had as many penalty shots as GIR.... 3. Sadly after 2 of the penalties I managed to leave myself inside of 5 feet for par that I missed. Putter was ice cold. Ball striking wasn’t bad but a few sprayed tee shots and a bad putting day left me 7 over for 9 holes. Worst performance I’ve had in 7 weeks of league play.
