David Feherty was born in the seaside town of Bangor in Northern Ireland. He grew up with aspirations to become an opera singer, until he discovered he had the knack for hitting a golf ball. David Feherty jokes about his career change, "I was always interested in music from a very early age. But when I turned pro at age 17, I haven't sung a note since. Now, I only sing to punish my children."
David Feherty enjoyed a very successful professional career, with 10 victories worldwide and over $3 million in prize money. David Feherty was a regular on the European Tour, with victories including the ICI International, the Italian Open, Scottish Open, South Africa PGA, BMW Open, Cannes Open, and Madrid Open. David Feherty captained the winning Irish team in the 1990 Alfred Dunhill Cup. And David Feherty played on the European Ryder Cup Team in 1991, an experience that rejuvenated his fervor for golf.
In 1997, sports speaker David Feherty retired from professional golf to become a golf commentator for CBS Sports. "I always enjoyed talking more than playing, and now CBS is paying me for what I like to do most." David Feherty’s knowledge of the game and Tour experience give him instant credibility, and his quick wit and colorful personality add a new dimension to golf telecasts. Feherty's approach to broadcasting is appreciated by golf fans and critics; he has been called "The Class Clown of Commentary" and "Golf's Ultimate Wise Guy."
David's success extends beyond broadcasting. He is an accomplished author, currently writing a monthly Sidespin column for GOLF Magazine and a popular bi-weekly column for Golfonline.com. In all of his work, David Feherty's goal is to encourage people to remember that golf is fun.
