August 2, 2017

On Tuesday we learned that Golf Channel reporter and TV host David Feherty had lost his son Shey. Feherty broke the heartbreaking news to the world that Shey had died of an overdose Saturday on his 29th birthday. Feherty wrote, “My first born son is gone from me, dying from an overdose on his 29th birthday. Bless his sweet heart, I will fight on.”

Feherty, who himself has battled drug and alcohol addiction in his life, is a beloved figure in the game from his time as a pro to his current work as an on-course reporter and host of his own Golf Channel TV show. As such, golf media and pros took to Twitter to offer Feherty their condolences and support in this trying time.
