TV Picks: Feherty Joins Fellow Pros, Fans on ‘Arnie & Me,’ March 17, Golf Channel VIDEOS
ARNIE & ME, PREMIERING TONIGHT AT 10 P.M. ET ON GOLF CHANNEL
Arnold Palmer has not only been a fan favorite for more than 50 years, but also during that time earned the admiration of celebrities and fellow golf professionals, alike.
This affection is punctuated by two of golf’s funnymen, David Feherty and Peter Jacobsen, in Arnie & Me, the latest Golf Channel Film premiering tonight at 10 p.m. ET and featuring a collection of user-generated videos reminiscing about “The King.”
Arnie & Me features everyday people talking about golf’s every man and one of the most beloved personalities in sports history. Due to the overwhelming fan response to Golf Channel’s 2014 presentation of the critically acclaimed three-part television event, Arnie – described as “fekking awesome” by Monsters and Critics, “tremendous” by CBS Sports, and a “three-part epic” by Golf Digest – Golf Channel invited fans of Arnold Palmer to submit videos that captured their personal stories, creating the fourth installment.
The film also features stories from notable personalities like Feherty and Jacobsen, as well as other celebrities inside and outside of sports: star NFL quarterback Peyton Manning, Major League Baseball Hall-of-Famer Johnny Bench, supermodel Kate Upton, NBC Sports commentator Al Michaels, PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem, and PGA TOUR pros Ian Poulter, Justin Rose and D.A. Points.
Feherty remembers Palmer’s unique style of testing the wing while playing golf with The King for the first time:
