Peter Oosterhuis Joins Golf Channel’s Feherty – Monday, June 27 at 9 p.m. ET

Friends and former colleagues for years working together on broadcasts for CBS Sports, Peter Oosterhuis will join Feherty in an emotional episode premiering on Monday, June 27. Oosterhuis in January 2015 announced his retirement from broadcasting after 20 years, revealing shortly thereafter that he had been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s.

Feherty throughout the interview is able to draw parallels in learning to deal with Alzheimer’s in his family given the battle his father is currently facing. Airing in association with June Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness month, the Englishman talks about the support he’s received from his family and the golf community and, along with his wife Roothie, discusses the day-to-day challenges of living with the disease.

During the episode Feherty also visits the Nantz National Alzheimer’s Center in Houston to find out more about the disease which afflicts so many around the world.
