Two-Time Major Champ Mark O'Meara to Join Feherty, Monday at 9 p.m. ET

(ORLANDO, Fla.) – World Golf Hall of Fame member Mark O’Meara will visit with David Feherty on his self-titled, Emmy-nominated “Outstanding Weekly Studio Show” – Feherty presented by Farmers Insurance  – premiering Monday, April 17 at 9 p.m. ET on Golf Channel.

Filmed at O’Meara’s home in Park City, Utah, the two-time major champion and Emmy-nominated television personality take advantage of wintry conditions to embark on a snow mobile excursion, while also discussing several topics over the course of the interview, including:
· O’Meara’s career-defining season in 1998, winning both the Masters and The Open largely “out of nowhere” at the age of 41
· A surprising exchange with Hale Irwin while grouped together at the 1979 U.S. Open thanks to O’Meara’s exemption into the field as the U.S. Amateur champion
· How he was able to win the Masters despite having no confidence with his putter throughout the course of the week, and a subsequent memorable exchange with Tiger Woods in Butler Cabin when Woods slipped the green jacket on O’Meara
· Why captain Arnold Palmer singled him out in front of the entire team at the 1996 Presidents Cup, and how he answered with a perfect 5-0 record during the competition
· Looking ahead to the 2017 Open at Royal Birkdale – site of his win in 1998 – and how it will likely be his last time competing in the event
· An uncharacteristic golf lesson he received from Ben Hogan

Upcoming guests on Feherty this season include Golden Globe and Academy Award-winning actor, Matthew McConaughey (Monday, April 24) and All-Star point guard for the Golden State Warriors, Stephen Curry (Monday, May 15).
