"We are thrilled to present the 2019 Award of Merit to David Feherty," said Jay Karen, NGCOA CEO. "David's history in the industry and his impact on the interest in our sport is remarkable. An industry like golf needs multiple sources of fuel to keep it going strong, and fandom is a key ingredient. David's ability to bridge golf and popular culture, and his levity and wit, have entertained millions of golfers and fans over the years. He joins great company, like Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Darius Rucker, Arnold Palmer, Patty Berg and many others who have been recipients of the award over the decades."
