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.

    • Hi! I've just joined here yesterday, I am very new to golf and I would be grateful for any advice on how to prioritize the many things going wrong with my swing.  I've been Playing Golf for: 5 months My current handicap index or average score is: about 120 My typical ball flight is: well, it's always been straight, but it just doesn't go anywhere. I used to top it all the time but that is somewhat better now.  The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: I'm trying to eliminate the part where my shot goes 20 yards.  I have torn my oblique (playing golf, yes) so these are not full speed shots however, they are exactly how I look. (Sigh.) Since I can't go play golf right now I have been trying to work on drills and small movements but I Realize I am not sure what to work on or why things are not working out better for me.  I always have a chicken wing at impact.  I always seem to turn with my shoulders / upper body and end up swinging over / above the ball.  I have only recently realized I should shift the weight to my left leg  (i thought it had to stay centered the whole time) and the that has helped; i used to top it 80% of the time (honestly, I don't know how i've persevered as long as I have!!)  I appreciate your thoughts. Thanks for looking at these!!    Videos:   I hope I have embedded these.  front view: https://vimeo.com/user110774000/review/519159426/a8284797e4   down the line: https://vimeo.com/user110774000/review/519159163/3e7b0e6c8b
    • A competition is set up as a series of knockout rounds but each game is played as a 'match' using strokeplay counting (ie the winner is the one with the lowest net score). Should each game/'match' be treated as a 2 man field strokeplay competition or should each player record their score as a general play score?
    • A bit of foul language, but I don't think that bothers anybody in here:    
    • I'm playing 9 holes today. Right now is is pure sun, 48* temp, and gentle breeze. I have to see how my new clubs like it on a golf course!
    • I can't speak to this condition, but I had hand surgery last summer to reattach 2 tendons in my left pinkie. Some more general thoughts from me first, and then I'll talk about my experience if you'd like. If you opt to have hand surgery, make sure you discuss the recovery process with your hand surgeon. The healing process is easy, and hand surgery is not as invasive as most other surgeries (although it looks like this surgery is way more invasive than what I had). I had basically no pain after surgery. The bitch is the physical therapy. Make sure you talk to your doctor about what physical therapy will look like for you after the surgery. Also make sure you have a hand surgeon, not any old orthopedic surgeon. Hand surgeons are way more qualified and skilled than a regular orthopedic surgeon. Finally, ask how long it will take before you can use your hand for normal activities again.  I'm basically back to normal in my pinkie and hand now, but it was a pretty intense process. I started physical therapy 2 weeks after my surgery. From 2 weeks until about 4 months after surgery, I saw a hand therapist every 2 weeks. 6 weeks after my surgery, the physical therapy got very intense. At that point, I started doing exercises on my finger every hour I was awake. I was also doing about an hour of scar massage every day to break up the scar tissue. It's been about 6 months on, and I'm still doing exercises almost every hour, trying to get that last little bit of movement back. Note that I had to learn to move my pinkie again, and I had to break through a bunch of scar tissue to get the tendon to be supple again. After 6 weeks, I was allowed to do most things, but I didn't get the okay to golf until 3 months after the surgery. I had to use dictation software at work because I could only type with one hand for a while. I couldn't really cook or, the worst part, hold my baby for 6 weeks.  The surgery itself was simple and healing was fast. Like I said, I had basically no pain. My incision was only about 1/3 of the way down my palm, though. They removed my stitches 2 weeks after the surgery without any problems. The scar is not very noticeable. Sadly, haha. I should get a better scar out of all this at least! I do not regret the decision to have surgery, because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to move my pinkie. Looking back, I wish I knew more about the recovery process in advance, because that was the most arduous part.
