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."

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

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.

    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
    • Wondered how and where achievements came from. I've broken par,  ( handicap is +3) 2 eagles on par 5's so far this year Hole in one 2 years ago on vacation in Arizona at Karsten ASU course.  My first one.
