Looks pretty interesting. He's on with Lee Trevino tonight and it's pretty good so far.

It was good. But Feherty is only good when he is interviewing or discussing with other people. When he's by himself ( ie. the intro of his show ) it sees a bit forced.

Liked the show though

I liked Trevinos quote

"It's something when people follow you when you're winning, people love winners, but when you're not winning and people follow you, it's something else"

I really enjoyed the show.  I love to listen to older folks tell stories, and Lee Trevino was SPOT ON!!!  I have always liked Feherty's banter, he just throws it out there.

I will watch, because some of his guests look intresting.

I have always thought highly of the golf coach that can take your natural swing, and tweak it to fit your golf.  I loved Trevino's anology for swing coaches talking about retooling a whole swing to fix one thing.

"...if you have a leaky roof, you dont tear down the whole house, you just fix the the leaky roof..."

I also thought it was pretty bold to say that if Tiger can not fix his collapsing knee, that he is DONE.....bold statement!

I think the premiere was a good show. Starting off with Trevino was a smart move because Trevino has a million stories and could have done the interview without him. Feherty got his feet wet, but the real test is when he gets someone who is not Lee Trevino. All in all, the show has a lot of potential and I like Feherty's out-of-the-box take on life.

I had my doubts about this show when I first heard about it but was rather impressed watching it. I was thinking it would be Feherty trying to do his bit for an hour but as it turns out was a pretty good interviewer. This is the first original series from the GC that I am interested in. Really looking forward to the Johnny Miller episode.

I liked it and am looking forward to the next one.  Lee T. was great and enjoyed the insights and stories.

It was certainly a good debut.  Feherty is strong "out there character" that is very likeable.

Also, it's about time we get to see these players from a more personal and "fun" perspective.  Pro Golfers have soo many interesting stories, opinion, thoughts in their heads (mostly due to all the international travel they have to do) and Feherty is the right choice to pry that out of them!

Rick Reilly is way worse. Feherty can sound a bit scripted every now and then, but Rick constantly talks as if reading an editor's opinion piece.

I agree w/ your take. I have DVR'd the first show. The first few shows will be good b/c this should be the best crop of guests. I'll be interested to see who the show fares once a couple dozen have been done and the list of most interesting guests has been exhausted. Then his skill will really be tested.

I liked it a lot. I think Ferehty was at his best when he was telling the story about his daughter getting him another bottle of whiskey. That was as pure as any golf shot he's ever hit I'm sure.

I watched the premier show and really enjoyed it.  Definitely going to watch the show and see how it progresses.  He was on the morning drive and made a comment that the show is a living and breathing thing, so it will be interesting as to where they take it.

I happen to like Feherty, whether his lines are scripted or not, he's good for a laugh.  I love his comparisons to completely random, off the map things in life.  Takes a lot of character to draw some of his comparisons.

Have to admit I enjoyed it. Forgot all about the "snake" I could listen to Trevino for days without getting bored.

And I think he could fix Tiger lol ,but a bigger challenge, could Lee fix my swing haha.

Feherty was pretty cool. I find him annoying and not that informative during golf broadcasts, but this I liked a great deal. A lot better than the sanitized, formulaic fare of golf broadcasts.

For those saying he seems "scripted". Of COURSE he's scripted. It's not a live show. There's obviously been a lot of attention paid by both Feherty and his producers to how Feherty will be presented. In that regard, I found the show effective and entertaining.

Guy's got a lot to say. Compared to most of the dross on The Golf Channel it's The Sopranos.

I really enjoyed it.  Lee Trevino was very interesting.  The fact that he didnt start golf seriously until his 20's, and won his first major at the age of 27... amazing and inspiring.

Saw the show tonight. Like other posters, I feel that his humor is a bit forced. He is at his best when he can come up with the spontaneous quip on a live broadcast, but this opening show was like was was trying to do stand-up and it just wasn't his voice.

What I really didn't like about the show was all the teasers of coming conversations. We must have seen 20 percent of the Trevino interview material twice. I would much rather they cut that out and devote the time to showing original content. Maybe the producers think viewers have such short attention spans that they have to be convinced to keep their hands off the remote. Who knows.

I'm not expecting a Charlie Rose-style show, but when he has such an interesting guest as Lee Trevino, whom we could spend the entire evening listening to, TGC could have made more of it than they did.

He's right about the pressure Tiger puts on his body, though. He has a young man's swing and he's not that young of a man anymore.

Yeah, this.  Maybe it's a Golf Channel thing?  They do the same annoying thing with Big Break, which has me just about done with THAT show.  Maybe GC assumes their primary demographic is deficient in the short-term memory department.

    • I went through the same experimentation phase with my "standard" clubs when I first began thinking about single length clubs a couple years ago, and as @inthecup mentioned, the results were not good -- the gaps were not good, the swing weights were different (because the head weights were different), lies were wrong, etc. But, I saw enough of an improvement in ball striking (i.e. not hitting fat as often on the long irons) that I tried the Pinhawks (ValueGolf). Aaron @ Value Golf has been selling Pinhawks for a couple years, but increasing demand for single length irons seems to outstrip supply occasionally (resulting in stock-outs). So if you're serious about trying it, sooner would be better than later -- I recently had to wait 30 days to send a contest winner their iron heads because they were completely out and were waiting for their next manufacturing run to be delivered.  
    • That sounds less like a slow play issue and more like a no play issue. I'd imagine your guys plopped down somewhere for a late afternoon picnic. They probably engaged in a few ball-hunting expeditions and may have taken a swim in a water hazard.  
    • Have been using one for a few months now and love it.  Has taken about 3 putts off my normal putts per round average.  Where I see the biggest difference is with my lag putting.  Has not made any difference with short putts, but I tend to miss the center of the face on longer putts and I have noticed a pretty significant difference.  The ball gets closer to the hole whereas my old Scotty would spray it further left, right, or short.   I am very confident it is giving me a chance at less 3 putts which was the biggest reason I bought one.   Its a very legit putter.  Worth trying out, but absolutely make sure to go to someone who knows how to fit for a putter.
    • I usually play munis. I try to have no time expectations (or for that matter, game expectations lol) when playing golf. I leave my house 45 minutes before a round, and usually get home 5 hours and thirty minutes later. 18 holes is anywhere from 4 to 4.5 hours. If I have later appointments I book golf earlier.  Over the past month I have invited a new person to golf on two separate occasions. (we are not trying to grow the game, just have an enjoyable outing with family or friend) We planned only 9 holes. Walking 9 holes and flailing at a little white ball tires a new comer. They have no idea of what pace of play means. We explained it and played pick up the f-----g ball if we started losing contact with those in front. We have a local 9 hole muni. It is often populated by occasional golfers. It is rated as intermediate difficulty. It is often slower on weekends and holidays. If I want to play there I either pick a different time or smell the roses.  If its two non golfing couples playing in front of us, I smell the roses. They have no clue what pace of play means, nor do they care. To me "golf is too slow" sounds like road rage. Golf is not instant gratification. Never has been. Need will be.
    • I started playing with them a few months ago and it took me about a month to get used to them seeing that I was coming off of players irons (Mizuno).  Getting much longer distances and can still work the ball well.  I needed more forgiveness which they provide.    Mizuno 7 iron distance was around 160-165.  Getting average 175 with the AP1's and if I really crank it (with the right weather conditions) have gotten the ball into the 185-190 range.  So, would say I am getting about a 10-15 yard added distance with these irons.   Its pretty remarkable how hot clubs are getting now.  Its allowing everyone to have a chance to play good golf as they age.
