In 1997, Feherty retired from competitive golf and began his career as an on-course reporter and golf analyst, first with CBS, then with NBC. He is the author of four New York Times best-selling books. From 2011 to 2021, he hosted his own weekly primetime talk show called Feherty on the Golf Channel.
