ORLANDO, Fla. -- David Feherty travels to the North Carolina backcountry for what he calls one of his “most honest and enlightening interviews ever” with two-time major champion and 17-time PGA TOUR winner Curtis Strange on the next episode of Feherty, Monday, April 22 at 10 p.m. ET.
From his boyhood beginnings in the game through his decorated playing career to his captaincy of the 2001 U.S. Ryder Cup team, Strange opens the door during the interview to a life impacted by major accomplishments and emotional slumps.
Highlights of the conversation include:
- How his 2001 Ryder Cup captaincy was impacted by the death of Payne Stewart and the horror of 9/11.
- The thrill of winning back-to-back U.S. Open Championships in 1988 and ’89.
- The tipping point that results from the unexpected passing of his father when he was only 14.
- The thrill of winning two NCAA Golf Championships at Wake Forest.
- His wedding night spent as a guest in the home of Arnold Palmer.
- His devotion to his wife, Sarah, as she faced and overcame breast cancer.
- The shock of his final-round collapse at the 1985 Masters.
- The emotional turmoil following defeat at the 1990 U.S. Open.
- The impact of the disappointing finish of his singles match against Nick Faldo at the 1995 Ryder Cup after being selected as a Captain’s Pick.
