ORLANDO, Fla. – Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will join David Feherty for an exclusive interview in an all-new episode of Feherty, airing next Monday, July 18 at 9 p.m. ET on Golf Channel. A sneak peek of the interview can be seen on Golf Channel during tonight’s premiere of Feherty (9 p.m. ET), which features golf’s current “Big Three,” – Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy. Feherty is Golf Channel’s highest-rated original program and features in-depth interviews with iconic figures from sports, entertainment, business and politics.
The interview, which took place at Trump’s Manhattan apartment residence on Wednesday, June 22, covers a wide spectrum of topics – both political and personal, and of course golf – including:
Why he doesn’t consider himself a politician
U.S. Presidents playing golf
Whether or not he will use a teleprompter at the Republican National Convention
Reaction to the PGA TOUR’s decision to move its World Golf Championship (WGC) event from Trump’s Doral property in Miami to Mexico
Distrust for the media: Trump – “The media to me is one of the most dishonest groups of people I’ve ever dealt with.”
Golf’s return to the Olympic Games: Trump – “I think it’s a great thing for golf, having it in the Olympics”
An admiration for professional golfers, including Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and today’s current wave of young stars
His recent trip to Scotland for the reopening of Turnberry
What’s next if he doesn’t win the presidential nomination

Tonight’s Feherty Featuring Golf’s New “Big Three” to Include Sneak Peek of Trump Episode
At 9 p.m. ET tonight, a new episode of Feherty will showcase golf’s current “Big Three,” Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy, featuring segments with Feherty interviewing each one-on-one. At the conclusion of the episode, there will be a special sneak peek of next Monday’s interview with Feherty and Donald Trump.
Upcoming Guests this Season
Other guests joining Feherty later this year include 26-time Emmy Award-winning NBC Sports personality and Olympic host Bob Costas; Pro Football Hall-of-Famers Terry Bradshaw, Cris Carter and Emmitt Smith; legendary baseball play-by-play voice Bob Uecker; Doug Collins, former first-overall pick and journeyman head coach in the NBA; and 2014 European-winning Ryder Cup team captain Paul McGinley.
Described as “the last unscripted man on TV,” by Men’s Journal and as “golf’s wisecracking, maverick interviewer” by Esquire, Feherty has made a name for himself not only through his self-titled Golf Channel talk show, but as one of the most irrepressible personalities calling golf over the past two decades. A native of Northern Ireland and a former professional golfer who claimed 10 worldwide victories and a spot on the 1991 European Ryder Cup Team, Feherty is now a proud American citizen who has risen above a history of alcoholism and addiction to become an Emmy-nominated television host, New York Times best-selling author and comedic relief for thousands of men and women in uniform.
