David Feherty Joins Us for The 7th Year
Royal Turks and Caicos is proud to say that David Feherty is our very own Club Ambassador. So happy in fact that it makes us laugh out loud …. or perhaps that’s just the impression that David leaves you with, after one of his stories or countless jokes that we now regularly enjoy.
The man of many talents, who manages to juggle hosting 22 episodes of “Feherty” and golf analyst duties for NBC and Golf Channel besides multiple speaking engagements will continue to be a regular visitor to Royal Turks and Caicos after agreeing to be our Ambassador for the 7th year in succession.
Born 13 August 1958 in Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland, David became a naturalized U.S. citizen eight years ago and now lives in Dallas with his wife Anita and their five children. Anita fell in love with the TCI after visiting in 2010 believing Providenciales was somewhere the family could relax together. David’s first visit left him impressed with the quality of Royal Turks and Caicos, its welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff, and now with numerous visits under his belt David feels quite at home in the TCI.
David turned professional in 1976 and spent nearly 20 years on the European Tour, winning five tournaments and twice finishing top 10 in the Order of Merit. 1994/5 saw him playing the U.S. PGA Tour, with his best result second at the 1994 New England Classic. When he retired from the tour in 1997, he joined CBS Sports as a course reporter and golf analyst and gained acclaim for his acerbic wit.
Since 2011 David has hosted his own one-hour talk show “Feherty” on the Golf Channel, going one to one with golfing greats such as Lee Trevino and Jack Nicklaus, former President Bill Clinton and more recently newly elected President Donald Trump. His sharp wit and clever personality has resulted in David being known as one of the most irrepressible personalities in golf and a true viewer favorite. He is now one of the most popular golf commentators on TV with almost 520,000 followers on Twitter. In 2014 Feherty decided to take his “cutting edge style” on the road with his live show “Feherty off Tour – Wandering Around On His Own” – a show full of great stories from behind the scenes.
