More Than Just World Class Tournaments…

There’s more on Golf Channel than just world class tournaments and top-notch instruction.

Critically acclaimed series from Golf Channel Original Productions have been helped the original niche network become one of the fastest growing in all of cable television.

Big Break, Feherty & The Haney Project are a few titles to name a few.

The season finale of Big Break Greenbrier, the 18th season of Golf Channel’s reality competition franchise, wrapped up in December and was the most-watched and highest-rated finale of any Golf Channel original series in 2012. Think of it as golf’s version of Survivor. With ratings on the rise, expect an announcement about a 19th edition later this year.

Season five of The Haney Project will feature Michael Phelps, who won an unprecedented 22 Olympic medals, including 18 gold medals, as he attempts to improve his game from tee to green with the guidance of Tiger Woods’ former swing coach – the legendary Hank Haney. Phelps will follow in the footsteps of former celebrity students Charles Barkley, Ray Romano and Adam Levine.

The off-beat humor and compelling interviews that have become trademarks of David Feherty will be on full display when season three of Feherty tees off on February 25th. The New York Times called him “a cross between Oprah Winfrey and Johnny Carson.” His irreverent humor and undeniable charm proves disarming for guests, and leads to great conversation, and a whole lot of laughs. Past guests include Bill Clinton, Annika Sorenstam, Samuel L. Jackson, Greg Norman and Charles Barkley. Who can you expect in 2013? Jack Nicklaus, Bobby Knight and Lee Westwood to name a few.

Tournaments. Instruction. Entertainment. Watch it all on Golf Channel.
