A multitalented combination of Dave Barry, P. J. O'Rourke, and Rick Reilly, David Feherty is the nation's wackiest and most popular on-screen golf personality. His back-of-the-book "Sidespin" column is the most turned- to feature in Golf Magazine, and his unmistakable Irish lilt and sensibility is a mainstay on CBS Sports golf broadcasts.
But what of his rumored dark Irish sense of humor? What does Feherty really think-- and cannot share on national television-- about the Sturm und Drang of the professional golfing world? Or, for that matter, what does he think is the appropriate diet for those of us who like to partake of a wee bit of adult beverage in the evening? Now, at long last, readers can distill Feherty's uncensored brand of idiocy for themselves.
Sure to put a smile on the crankiest duffer in the family, Somewhere in Ireland, A Village is Missing an Idiot answers the question all Feherty fans have been asking themselves for a yearS who is this guy and why is he here?
Product Details


As a broadcaster for CBS Sports, Feherty (A Nasty Bit of Rough) injects a most welcome dash of humor into his play-by-play of professional golf tournaments, a sport not well known for hilarious hijinks or colorful characters. This "best of" collection of columns from Golf Magazine, the British publication Golf Monthly and by the expatriate Irishman is equally entertaining, but Feherty in large doses can wear a bit thin. With a schoolboy's delight in all things scatological, many columns honor the author's digestive tract or lack thereof; he also spends time with vomiting fans and African animal excrement. But Feherty's place in golf literature is assured by his sprightly refusal to accept an image of the game as dull and unexciting, with colorless players who all look and sound the same. Feherty is a black sheep golf character who enjoys a game different from the one projected by the media and earnest sportswriters who wax poetic about azaleas, sportsmanship and traditions. His golf is that of Everyman, where expletives, immaturity and the occasional ingestion of alcohol combine to make it a fun and infuriating game. Reading in their entirety the 300-plus pages of intense efforts to be funny will require some fortitude, but if you like your golf writing irreverent, dicey and honest, you will certainly enjoy this.
