Feherty Sayings

36 posts in this topic

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

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.

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.

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."

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'

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.

    • Copy & Pasting my own answer on a similar thread here.... I agree about borrowing or grabbing a CHEAP bag of random clubs at a garage sale to start with but when you're ready to invest a little dough into your own set, there are really three ways to do it... 1 - Get a cheap beginner set from Golfsmith or Dick's (or other online source). Advantages (if you go instore) are you get to see/swing them first, some assistance with selection, a good matched set to start learning the game with even if they are not fitted. I recently spent $169 on a set of Lynx Tigress clubs from Golfsmith for my wife...same set is currently listed on their site for $299. They are actually quite well made/designed and will likely be all she ever needs for her game. Dick's also had a Top Flite set in the same price range...she liked the color of the Lynx set better. ;) 2 - Roll the dice with an online "Clone" company like Giga, Diamond Tour, Pine Meadow, Hireko Golf, etc...You don't get to swing them first but you can use their online fitting systems to customize size/shaft/grip options a little more than just the standard options in a box. I used to have a Pine Meadow driver that I could hit ever bit as far as my brother-in-laws latest greatest. This is a good article about clone clubs http://planet-golf.com/what-are-clone-golf-clubs/ 3 - Used brand name stuff, one man's trash is literally my treasure. Try EBay, Club Finders (or other like websites) and buy a used set of matched irons of proper size/flex (used Ping Eye 2 iron sets go for $90-125 all day) and then piece together your other clubs individually. Again, you won't get to swing them first and you could get burned on a deal along the way...but if you take your time and shop smart, you can assemble a nice bag without breaking the bank this way too. I'm lucky here in Dallas to have a PGA store, a Golfsmith, a dozen Dick's Sports, and also Club Finders Golf (used golf specialist) all within 20 minutes of my house so when I started building a new bag I decided to take the #3 route...but I am considering finishing it off with a couple of new clone wedges rather than going with older/used wedges. Good luck whatever you decide.

    • Great time! Laughs, good conversation and three new good people that I met. Hacker James is a fun character and his daughter is also. She has good setup form and with more playing and practice she can really improve. She hit a few good long drives, out driving her father from the same tees. Hacker James was lagging very well, but nothing fell for him, but he took it like the golfer that he is. Shindig is a great guy and fun to play with and talk with. His golf game is impressive. Long drives, good short game and putter. He's pretty consistent. Consistently out drove me. Shindig was using Game Golf, I'm looking forward to seeing the results. It didn't seem to bother his game.   I got up at 3:00 am, left home around 4, got to the course about 6:30 from Palm Desert. I liked the course. it has a great practice area, broken up into the driving range and different short game areas. The layout of the course was good as well as the fairways and greens. I didn't like some of the sand bunkers with very little sand, but overall it's a good course to play. The employees were friendly as well.   I shot 97, 48 on the front, 49 on the back. I putted so badly.  I missed so many putts within 5 feet. I drove the ball well, not too many out of the fairway, and they were still playable. I got in the sand and out pretty good most of the time, but I missed one short putt after another, it was killing me or better yet I was killing myself. My lagging was hit and miss as well. When I got home I took five putters to the putting green and selected another putter for my next round.  I did hit one of those shots that make you say " Oh yea". It was a 5-wood from the fairway, oh so sweet.  Looking forward to the next outing and meeting other Sand Trap members.    
    • I've always been at best average at speed events like sprinting.  But when I hit the driver well it goes 250 to 260 yards.  I gained maybe 30 to 40 yards this year and I'll turn 59 this December.  I'm 5'11", 150 lbs.  I've had leukemia, high dosage chemo and a bone marrow transplant, 5 years ago.  I'm definately not an example of great health. Most 42 year old men should be able to hit it further than 180 yards. Yes, technic and just as important... swing fast.  You should post a swing video in the member swing section of this forum to get tips from some experts around here.
    • Being in Scotland it's the opposite to your situation as in flooded greens.  I've went into pro shop and been given a free second game voucher / ticket a few times over the years.  I don't see it as an issue and as long as your respectful to the staff it's never been an issue with no hard feelings from either party.
