What, David Feherty? It’s Like You’ve Never Seen A Golfer Hit A Football Before

Would you get a look at Feherty in that image? He looks like an overdressed hobo. Jay Busbee over at Devil Ball Golf refers to the golf analyst (and host of his own show on the Golf Channel) as “gremlinesque.” I’m inclined to agree. It’s a good thing Feherty has been off the sauce for a long time now otherwise I would have been worried about him.

Feherty’s imposingly frightening appearance aside, what we have here is Hunter Mahan appearing to hit a shot, only the golf ball has been replaced by a football. Perhaps he’s hitting a flop shot, who knows? Prior to Mahan’s striking of the spheroid, holding the ball (under the leering watch of Feherty, of course) was retired Dallas Cowboys punter Mike Saxon for some promo for Golf Channel the ad wizards who came up with this are cleverly calling “Hunter vs. the Punter.” Well played.

I only wish Saxon wasn’t blocking the lower half of Feherty’s body. The look on his face and the way he is standing would have been Photoshoppery Gold.
