MEDINAH, Ill. -- David Feherty's loyalties are divided no more.

Golf's funny man said during the taping of his "Feherty Live" special that he will be rooting for the Americans at this week's Ryder Cup. That's big news, considering the analyst is from Northern Ireland, played for Europe at the 1991 Ryder Cup and still counts former European captain Sam Torrance as one of his closest friends.

But Feherty has lived in the Dallas area for the better part of the last 20 years and became a U.S. citizen in 2010. He's an ardent supporter of U.S. troops and has a foundation -- Troops First -- that raises money for wounded soldiers.
