“When you think of legendary broadcasters in the world of golf, David Feherty’s name is at the top of the list. His authentic style blends unique perspective, personality and wit that educates and entertains fans like no other,” said Greg Norman, CEO and Commissioner of LIV Golf. “Following more than 20 years as a player, he brought a new voice to the sport that has transcended golf culture. We’re extremely proud of the LIV Golf broadcast launch through just two events and David will only strengthen that experience at Bedminster and beyond.”

A native of Northern Ireland, Feherty joined the professional golf ranks in 1976 and won 10 worldwide events throughout his career. He captained the winning 1990 Alfred Dunhill Cup team, played for Europe in the 1991 Ryder Cup and notched top-10 finishes at the 1991 PGA Championship and 1994 Open Championship.

In 1997, Feherty transitioned to broadcasting and began his career as an analyst and on-course reporter. Over the course of 25 years, he has become a New York Times best-selling author and has held high-profile roles with some of the sport’s leading networks covering hundreds of marquee events, major championships and international competitions.

In 2011, he premiered the highly popular talk program Feherty, which earned him an Emmy nomination in 2014 for Outstanding Sports Personality. Throughout the show’s 10-year run, he hosted and interviewed nearly 150 different guests and some of the world’s biggest names, including four U.S. Presidents, Hollywood celebrities and global sports legends.

“As a storyteller, this is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to help write a new chapter in this sport’s history,” said Feherty. “LIV Golf is developing ideas and innovations that are going to grow the audience and engage the next generation of players and fans. I’m excited by the energy LIV Golf is creating and I’m eager to contribute to a world-class broadcast production that has a vision towards the future.”

Feherty joins the LIV Golf broadcast team featuring play-by-play announcer Arlo White, analysts Jerry Foltz and Dom Boulet, and on-course commentators Su-Ann Heng and Troy Mullins.
