Popular golf analyst David Feherty is one of the most powerful speakers from the world of sports when it comes to addressing addiction issues. He was sharing his incredibly personal experience again at a fundraiser for the 525 Foundation.
The event served as a way to raise awareness with teens and families about the dangers of prescription drug and alcohol use. Feherty shared his own struggles with addiction and the story of losing his son due to similar problems.
“There’s only one way to cope with the kind of grief that that brings, and that is to feel like you’re doing something that might, perhaps, save another family and make sure this doesn’t happen again,” Feherty said.
Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw shared the stage with the golf icon and talked about how his wife lost her son to addiction issues. The 525 Foundation announced additional locations they will have pill drop boxes at during the fundraiser at The Armory in South Bend, Indiana.
Even though he stepped away from competition years ago, Feherty still is regarded as one of the most famous people in golf. After starting out as a course reporter for CBS in 1997, he has become a true media mogul.
Feherty currently covers golf for NBC and hosts his own talk show on Golf Channel, "Feherty." He also regularly tours the country as a comedian.
During his playing career, Feherty won five times on the European Tour. He finished in the top ten twice on the European Tour Order of Merit and competed in the 1991 Ryder Cup.
