Michael Phelps, the most-decorated Olympian in history, will join golf's funnyman, David Feherty, for a special Ryder Cup-themed Feherty Live from Chicago, airing Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 9 p.m. ET on Golf Channel.

The next installment of Feherty's critically acclaimed Golf Channel series will be taped in front of a live Chicago audience and also will feature appearances by former Ryder Cup captains Paul Azinger, Sam Torrance and Lanny Wadkins. The first Feherty Live took place earlier this year during Super Bowl week in Indianapolis, when featured guest Tim Tebow faced Feherty - who USA Today calls "an interviewer like no other" - and created a huge media buzz when the NFL quarterback first discussed his political aspirations during the interview.

The off-beat humor and compelling interviews that have become trademarks of David Feherty will be on full display during one of the most anticipated weeks on the 2012 golf calendar. The 39th Ryder Cup, a biennial golf competition, begins Friday, Sept. 28 at nearby Medinah Country Club. Golf Channel will be there all week, delivering more than 40 hours of news coverage, with NBC airing 16 live hours of Ryder Cup competition on the weekend.

Feherty, whose series has been described by The New York Times as "a cross between Oprah Winfrey and Johnny Carson," has been dubbed "one of the funniest men in the game" by Yahoo! Sports. Feherty debuted in 2011 as the most-watched premiere for an original series in Golf Channel history, and over the span of two seasons has featured a variety of guests, such as former President Bill Clinton, NBA Hall-of-Famer Bill Russell, real estate magnate and reality show star Donald Trump; actors Don Cheadle and Samuel L. Jackson; and golfers Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, Greg Norman and Tom Watson. The third season of Feherty will premiere in February 2013.

Phelps not only has been one of the most popular Olympians of all time, he is the holder of an astonishing 22 medals, making him the most-decorated Olympian in history. In the afterglow of his stellar performance at the London Olympics, the American swimmer announced the serious pursuit of a better golf game as the next stage of his career. He intends to play the world's best golf courses and improve his game under the watchful eye of famed swing coach Hank Haney, which will be captured by Golf Channel cameras for the next season of The Haney Project, scheduled to premiere in early 2013.
