David Feherty details his experience of playing with a hangover

Feherty, 63, recalled, “The best round of golf I ever played was under a monumental hangover. I’m not that proud of that part of it. But it was on the eastern coast of Spain- The Catalan Open. I thought that I was going to miss the cut. So, I went out with a friend of mine, Sam Torrance, and we kind of tied one on.”

Naturally, he came back in around three or four in the morning, with barely any expectations of playing. However, imagine his surprise when he noticed that not only had he made the cut, but he was also teeing up first!

He said, “I got in the shower and got changed and went back out almost immediately and shot 61. I went from just making the cut to tied for second. So I behaved myself the following evening and shot 75 the next day. Yeah, serves me right!”
