David Feherty Visits with Scottish Ryder Cup Icon Sam Torrance on Next Episode of Feherty
Shot at Torrance’s home in Surrey, England, rarely has an evening on Feherty been more personal and heartfelt. With affection and lots of laughter, the Emmy-nominated Feherty reminisces with Torrance on the highlights of the Scot’s 32-win career on the European circuit, their shared love of Ryder Cup competition and their affection for Torrance’s recently departed father, Bob, a renowned golf instructor and swing coach to such players as three-time major champion Padraig Harrington. Along the way, there also are recollections about memorable encounters with the likes of golfing legends Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and Seve Ballesteros.
Season four of Feherty will move to Tuesdays, beginning with the Sept. 9 episode featuring college football coaching legend Lou Holtz.
Feherty originally debuted in June 2011 as the most-watched original series in Golf Channel history. David Feherty, Emmy nominated this year for Outstanding Sports Personality, has gone one-on-one with celebrities across golf, sports and entertainment, including former President Bill Clinton, basketball Hall-of-Famers Bill Russell and Charles Barkley, actors Don Cheadle and Samuel L. Jackson, and golfers Tom Watson and Greg Norman.
