An Evening with David Feherty
As some of you, I received a VIP pass to the Feherty Off Tour show here in Phoenix last night, and the place was packed! I only saw 2 empty seats in the theater. The backstage party started at 6pm and went until 7pm, the show started at 7:30 and went a full 2 hours…non-stop!
Some of you may not be a fan of David but I have to tell you, he is extremely funny and humble! The night was filled with stories from his days on the Tour, his family, caddies and fellow tour players.
He had great stories about Ernie Els, Tiger, Colin Montgomery, Sir Nick Faldo and many more. The player stories were not only insightful, but hilarious too! Was there any “off color” language…you betcha…but all in jest!
David is very open about his addictions with alcohol, drugs and depression. In our before show chat, we briefly shared those experiences and how they changed our lives. My good friend Rayl Evans, was there as well and afterward he told my it may been the best “comedy” show he had ever attended!
Several local pros showed up including Martin Chuck and a golf “rocker,” Alice Cooper! I tried to get Vince/Alice to slow down and ask him if remembered the set of golf clubs I gave him at the Beverly Hills Hilton several years ago, but he was gone in a flash!
I mentioned that some of you may not be fans of David. If you are in that group, you owe it to yourself to go see his show…then decide for yourself! When I sent out an email to our clients (over 1.2m) about the show, I had ONE person write me back and say that he found David “distasteful” and he un-subscribed from our list…fare well…don’t let the door hit you in the a$$!
We had a great time and I look forward to going again some day!
