for me, i knew it wasn't going to work. i could play at a certain level. but when i got the opportunity to get into tv, then that was more my comfort level. >> jimmy: i'm so happy you did, i think you're my favorite commentator in the sport of golf. i love hearing your voice. even in the video games. >> and in the video game all i do is give you crap. >> jimmy: yeah, i know. i love it. i take it. i go, ah, that's cool. i learn from you, yeah. >> you know, with the olympics coming up, i'm just hoping they don't drug test announcers. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that would be a a disaster. >> oh, total. for me. if they find a performance-enhancing substance for golf, do you know how pissed off i would be? i spent 20 years of my life looking for it. [ laughter ] and it doesn't -- there isn't one. >> jimmy: no there is, no. >> there isn't one. no, steroids they give you smaller balls and a worse temper. that's not gonna help you play golf. >> jimmy: it's not good for golf, no. >> no, amphetamines make you more nervous. uh, human growth hormone, you
can hit it farther into the woods. but the one that i love is deer antlers. that's a performance-enhancing. >> jimmy: is it really? >> it is, yeah. >> jimmy: deer antlers. >> deer antlers. there's some substance in deer antlers. i think they are worried that, you know, one of the players is going to start head butting another one. >> jimmy: i've seen that. and it's awful. >> second week in november. >> jimmy: you don't want to see that happen. it ruins the sport. i think besides me, you're the most accident-prone talk show host out there. you've been hit by a car three times? >> three times, yes. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: you gotta walk me through at least one of them, um, please. what is -- how? how? >> well, i was riding from an aa meeting. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: that explains one of them. yeah. >> yeah. back to my house and i got hit. fortunately, it wasn't a beer truck, which that would have been too ironic, even for me. [ light laughter ] but i got crushed all the way down the left side of my body, a punctured lung. this arm is mangled. i can't close my left hand.
these two fingers don't work. they've got no ulnar nerve. the middle one works perfectly. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: thank you for aiming it my way. i appreciate that. >> i can still communicate with other motorists. [ light laughter ] it took me about eight months to recover from that one, and then i got back on the bike, for the second time, back on the bike was in dearborn, michigan. and i woke up in a hospital wearing a turban. [ laughter ] i've got no recollection of what happened there. then three or four years ago i went through a windshield here in new york. and i thought, hmm, you know what? >> jimmy: i'm not going to ride a bike anymore. >> yeah, maybe not. >> jimmy: that's the end of that. >> yeah. >> jimmy: i love the looseness and the fun of your show. uh, i watch it all the time. you interview everyone from jordan spieth to george w. bush, which was a a fantastic interview. >> isn't he wonderful? >> jimmy: he was so charming and funny. and we talk about his paintings. and i go, i want to know about that stuff. is he a good golfer? >> uh, no, he's not a bad player. >> jimmy: he is? he's pretty good? >> yeah, i mean, he's a pretty good player. i'd say you know, probably 12 handicap, something like that.
>> jimmy: do you get nervous when you interview the president? cause you interviewed bill clinton, as well. >> yes, i do. it's always -- i get nervous -- i'm nervous right now. >> jimmy: are you, really? >> yeah. i soiled myself briefly behind stage. >> jimmy: i was wondering what that was. >> you get that out of the way. no, i think if you're not nervous, >> jimmy: well, i noticed you were sitting taller than you normally would be. >> i think if you're not nervous, you're probably not paying attention. >> jimmy: yeah, exactly. but i mean, you've had donald trump. how was he as an interviewee? >> he was phenomenal. there is something about the donald -- he is the donald. >> jimmy: he's not a character. that's him. >> yeah. >> jimmy: he's been on the show numerous times. and i go, no you don't understand. >> that's who he is. >> jimmy: that's actually who he is. >> yeah, i mean, if you ask him if that's, yes, yes that's who i am. and i will be the same person tomorrow, possibly worse. [ light laughter ] and you gotta love him for that. i like the man. >> jimmy: yeah, are you going to interview hillary clinton? >> you know i interviewed her
husband and he told me everything about her. so -- [ laughter ] [ cheers ] >> jimmy: okay. how about tiger woods? have you ever interviewed him? >> i'm hoping tiger will be on the show next year, the start of next year. i'm not sure. >> jimmy: the source i read, it almost seems like it's the end of his career. >> uh, he is badly hurt. it's not a muscular or skeletal thing. it's nerve damage. and i don't know if he'll be able to come back. i sure hope so. we miss him out there, the impact that he had in the game and how much fun it was to watch him during that period, where he was just like watching a creature from a different planet. >> jimmy: i really wish i got to see him do that. uh, you have a big announcement that's kind of a cool thing you are doing for the olympics. you're going to be interviewing president obama. >> yes. >> jimmy: that's fantastic. >> yes. it is. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: what -- how did he
choose you out of anyone to do the --? [ light laughter ] no, i like that he did. >> no, it's a very, very logical question. >> jimmy: no, that's not what i meant. >> i have absolutely no idea. i mean, he loves to play golf. and i guess, you know, that he watches the show. and actually, i don't know the answer to the question. i have no idea why. >> jimmy: do you know when you're going to do it? >> it will be, i want to say, next wednesday, it's about the 3rd. and then it will be part of the opening ceremony, that will be broadcast. >> jimmy: that's fantastic. that's so good. >> it really is. it's a great honor. >> jimmy: well, i'm psyched to have you. i want to show everyone a clip of you. here is the clip. here is david feherty interviewing presidential nominee donald trump. his show "feherty" airs mondays at 9:00p.m. on the golf channel. check this out. >> you know the first time that i spoke to you i asked you if it bothered you that people felt that you were an [ bleep ]? there are a lot of people that think that you're a world class [ bleep ][ bleep ]. >> it's true. >> yeah. [ light laughter ] >> yeah, you know based on the polls, there are significant numbers of people who might still think, you know, that you're a bit of an a-hole.
but does it bother you? i mean, are you less [ bleep ] than you were before? >> well i think i'm doing well. i did very well in the polls in the primaries. i led from beginning to end. and i'm doing well now. i haven't spent any money yet. >> well i mean, i think that -- >> the problem is if you've got 50%, you're doing well. that means 50% of the people don't like you. >> well, when you consider the [ bleep ] that a president has to deal with, isn't it prerequisite that he needs to be a bit that way himself? >> maybe so, maybe so. in which case perhaps i'll do very well. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: unbelievable. our thanks to david feherty, everybody.
