David Feherty Stinky Moment Interviewing Tiger Woods

David Feherty is aptly named golf’s Clown Prince. Funny and willing to take some chances in the staid world of golf–although not so much now on NBC.

One-time broadcasting partner Gary McCord relayed a crazy story about Feherty in a most uncomfortable position when interviewing Woods on the podcast Subpar. If nothing else, Feherty has a whole bunch more courage than me.

After Feherty soiled his underwear in a joke attempt gone awry, golf on CBS coordinating producer Lance Barrow instructed him to conduct a post-round interview with Tiger Woods. Let’s let McCord tell the rest of the story.

“So Lance goes, ‘David, I want you to stay down there and get an interview from Tiger.’ He stops, slumps his shoulders and walks back to Tiger. Now, the cameraman locks the camera on the three guys. We’ve got Tiger in the middle, we’ve got Stevie (Williams, Tiger’s longtime caddie) over here, who’s at best 1 and 1A (with Feherty) as far as flatulence, and we’ve got (Feherty) over here, microphone in his hands.”

Then, the moment of truth.

“All of a sudden, you see Tiger (sniffing). He turns to Stevie and he goes, ‘you didn’t!’ And Stevie goes, ‘I didn’t do it!’ He turns to David, and as soon as he looks at David, David goes, ‘I s— myself on fifteen.’ Tiger jumped up in the air!”

On the 15th hole?!?!

“David goes to put the mic in Tiger’s (face) and (he’s) running—he’s getting away from it. So David’s trying to get the mic, and Tiger’s running that way because the stench is so bad. It was hilarious to watch.”
