David Feherty ridiculed for Greg Norman comment during LIV broadcast



LIV Golf got its season underway over the weekend, with Charles Howell III winning at Mayakoba’s El Camaleon Golf Course.

As well as taking the individual title, the 43-year-old’s team, Crushers GC, won the team event meaning Howell III made $4 million from a total purse of $25 million.

The season opener went by without too much incident in Mexico, although one comment from announcer David Feherty raised some eyebrows during Sunday’s final round.

As picked up by journalist Geoff Shackelford, Feherty made the questionable call to describe LIV’s commissioner, Greg Norman, as “probably the most recognizable athlete on the planet” in the ’80s and ’90s.

Unsurprisingly, golf fans were not exactly buying the take from the colorful commentator:

Make up your own mind, WRXer!

    Ferity is correct.
    The great white shark would have been one of the most recognizable athletes in the entire world in the ’80s and ’90s that’s a fact anybody that lived through the 80s and 90s can attest to this.
    He was Tiger Woods before Tiger Woods.
    He had a whole line of clothing books instruction Golf Course design golf clubs he had that funny looking Australian hat that he wore all the time that he actually got thousands of Americans to adopt.
    I remember reading his book shark attack it got a whole generation of golfers into the game

    Feherty missed one word. Norman indeed was “one” of the most recognizable athletes in the world during that time period. If you are less than 40 years old today, it is understandable that you aren’t aware of that.

    Greg Norman biggest choker to ever play golf.

      The most recognizable choker athlete on the planet in the eighties and nineties would be more accurate

    Norman wasn’t even close to the most recognizable athlete on the planet, all he was known for was his failures at the Masters and other tournaments, now he is known as the whiny face of LIV and their hundresds of fans watching that low rent production on the CW, what a joke.

    80s? NOBODY outside of the US knew who Jordan was. Nor did they care about some girlie sport where grown men bounce balls and put it into a basket. The rest of the WORLD did know Greg Norman though.

    LOL outside of the US, NOBODY knew about Jordan or AIDS Johnson or whatever his real name was, nor Gretzky or any of those silly girly American sports like that where they either wear a tonne of pads and helmets or bounce a silly ball into a basket

    Geez… who could have a problem with more nonsense from Feherty? We all know that he’s a complete sell-out, another integrity-free tool of the Saudis, one who openly admitted that he joined their team solely because of money. As to the inanity of his Norman comment, what’s wrong with casually brown-nosing his boss to the worldwide network of hundreds of viewers? Davey is just chalking up points with the Commish; exactly as he’s PAID to do. Turn your back on NBC and the Golf Channel, the folks who gave you your own interview show for ten years? No problem!

      Get over yourself pal. The Shark was definitely a brand name for awhile. He’s no Jordan or Gretzky but he was face of golf for couple years. As far as LIV goes to each their own, not your business. PGA is playing copycat now so keep letting the Shark swim in your head lol

        LIV is “not my business?” Laughable. Here’s a league who has desperately tried to woo golf fans like me, telling me that their product is superior because of shotgun starts, only 48 players and LOTS of no-names plus has-beens over 40. The LIV folks are yearning for attention but only because they’re a “renegade,” “Golf but louder” marketing outfit. Interesting, isn’t it, that NOBODY talks about the quality of golf at the Saudi league; no wonder….. if a 43-year-old perennial non-winner like Charles Howell can smoke the field, just how good is this little exhibition circuit anyway?

        Can you reply to the first two comments? Especially the one calling Magic Johnson AIDS Johnson. They seem to disagree with your statement about knowing Jordan and Gretzky lol.

        GolfWRX’s has been a TMZ clone lately. Don’t know how long you’ve been here on this site but in the beginning it was all about equipment and being a golf equipment junkie. Now it’s all about TMZ type bull?

‘You’re a f*****g traffic cone!’ – Brooks Koepka heckles Aaron Ekblad at Florida Panthers game



Brooks Koepka is preparing to play in this week’s LIV event in Orlando. While in Florida, the four-time major champion attended a Florida Panthers game.

At the game, Koepka was seen taunting Aaron Ekblad, who was the first overall pick in the draft in 2014, with a traffic cone.

Brooks can be seen in the video yelling, “Ekblad you suck” as well as calling him a “traffic cone” with the prop in hand.

So far this season, Koepka has finished 31st at LIV Mayakoba and 29th at LIV Tucson. He’ll be teeing it up at The Masters next week in search of his 5th major championship.

‘Never mind the Masters’ – Gary Player explains why he ranks the Masters dead last of all the majors



In an interview with Sportsmail, Gary Player spoke about which major championship he believes is the best among them. The 87-year-old won nine major championships, including the Masters three times and The Open Championship three times.

“But never mind the Masters, the Open is by far the greatest tournament on the planet.”

Interestingly, Player ranked the Masters fourth of the four majors.

“I rate the Open at one, the US Open two, PGA three and Augusta four,’ he adds. Four marvelous tournaments.”

When asked why he ranked the Masters after the other three, Player said it was because the others have been around longer.

“It’s the youngest of the majors. The others are steeped in tradition and history, and they still have to catch up. Nothing comes to the top without time.”

Speaking of The Masters, Player also spoke about Rory McIlroy’s quest for the career grand slam, of which he’s still one green jacket short. Player believes McIlroy will win and needs to do so sooner rather than later to cement his spot amongst the greatest players of all time.

‘He’s got the best swing in the world by a mile,’ Player says. ‘He’s won four majors but none since 2014. I think he will win the Masters because the course is made for him. I think if he does that, he’ll go down as one of the greats, but that’s something he has to do.

“I’ve always said my judgment of superstars is they have to win six majors. People these days say anyone who wins is a superstar. No. It’s not easily done, but I believe Rory can.”

Golf legend says this was the biggest mistake of Tiger’s career



At one stage in his career, it looked as if Tiger Woods becoming the record major holder was a formality, but for whatever factors that never materialised.

In an interview with Sportsmail, Gary Player spoke about Tiger Woods and his quest to break Jack Nicklaus’s major championship record, and has his own view on why Tiger never surpassed Jack’s record.

Player, who won nine major championships himself, said that he believes Ben Hogan was the “greatest” golfer he’d ever seen, but Tiger Woods was the most talented.

‘The greatest I ever saw was Ben Hogan,’ he says. ‘He went to war for five years and then had a terrible car accident, so never played in 30 majors. Nobody had a streak like he had (winning his nine majors in the space of 16 starts). If I was a young boy today, I’d watch his swing from 1953 every day.”

‘Tiger Woods was the most talented golfer the planet has ever seen but he made a few bad decisions, which we all do.”

“Having lessons when he won the US Open by 15 shots was inconceivable — if he never went for a lesson, he would have won 20 majors minimum and he would have beat Nicklaus’s record.”

Player is referencing the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, which Woods won by 15 shots. Just two years later, Tiger completely renovated his golf swing, which in retrospect looks as if it may have been a mistake.
