The most decorated Olympian in history, Michael Phelps, met his idol – Michael Jordan – for the first time tonight during the filming of Feherty Live, an hour-long special that will air Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on Golf Channel.
Jordan and Phelps joined David Feherty for the special Ryder Cup-themed show, taped in front of a packed house at the Tivoli Theater in Downers Grove, Ill., near Medinah Country Club, site of this week’s Ryder Cup.
Wednesday’s Feherty Live also will appearances by former Ryder Cup captains Paul Azinger, Sam Torrance and Lanny Wadkins.
The first Feherty Live took place earlier this year during Super Bowl week in Indianapolis, when featured guest Tim Tebow faced Feherty – who USA Today calls "an interviewer like no other" – and created a huge media buzz when the NFL quarterback first discussed his political aspirations during the interview.
The off-beat humor and compelling interviews that have become trademarks of David Feherty will be on full display during one of the most anticipated weeks on the 2012 golf calendar.
The 39th Ryder Cup, a biennial golf competition, begins Friday at nearby Medinah Country Club. Golf Channel will be there all week, delivering more than 40 hours of news coverage, with NBC airing 16 live hours of Ryder Cup competition on the weekend.
Feherty Live is one of several programming highlights during Ryder Cup Week on Golf Channel.
War by the Shore, a film documenting the epic 1991 Ryder Cup matches between the U.S.A. and Europe, airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET; and Live From the Ryder Cup and Morning Drive will feature a combination of more than 40 live hours of news, highlights, interviews and analysis surrounding the 39 Ryder Cup matches from Medinah Country Club.
Online clip of Phelps meeting Jordan will be available midday Tuesday, September 25 via GolfChannel.com
