Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 162
Y OU might have noticed, but golf coverage is about as sedate as it gets in professional sport. Golf broadcasts are like that guy you know whose idea of really letting loose is to untuck his polo shirt from his jeans, or have a light beer instead of an iced tea. It’s reserved, serious and, aside from advances in technology, has barely changed in, well, forever. So it’s with both disappointment and more than a hint of disbelief that many golf fans digested the news that CBS had parted ways with David Feherty, the network’s on-course commentator and analyst. After 19 years of honest, sometimes irreverent yet (most importantly) always entertaining insight, one of golf’s great characters is searching for a new home. The Irishman turned American will still have a TV presence on the Golf Channel, but for now his days as a staple of the PGA Tour’s coverage are over, after he and CBS couldn’t agree to terms on a new contract. So for now, and with three of the season’s biggest events looming over the next month, Feherty is no more. And with golfing personalities at an absolute premium, the game will be worse for it. Admittedly, Feherty isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
