ORLANDO, Fla. (Aug. 9, 2019) – World Golf Hall of Fame member Bernhard Langer will join David Feherty on his self-titled, Emmy-nominated series, Feherty presented by Farmers Insurance®, Monday, Aug. 12 at 9 p.m. ET on GOLF Channel.
Filmed at Langer’s home in South Florida in April, the episode will focus on several topics, including:
• Langer’s upbringing in Germany, and his trajectory in the sport that would eventually lead to him becoming a major champion and a member of the ‘Famous 5’.
• Examining his long list of accolades on the PGA TOUR Champions, and his chances at catching Hale Irwin’s record of 45 all-time victories on the senior circuit.
• Recounting Langer’s memories from his two Masters victories in 1985 and 1993.
• Reflecting on Langer’s collective experiences in the Ryder Cup, including in 1991 as a teammate of Feherty’s in the “War by the Shore” edition of the biennial event.
• How he’s able to maintain a level of excellent play despite combatting the putting “yips”.
Feherty will welcome three additional guests in as many weeks to close out the show’s ninth season (each episode airing at 9 p.m. ET on Monday):
Aug. 19 – Xander Schauffele
Aug. 26 – John McEnroe
Sept. 2 – Michael Strahan
