Well said, buddy!!!
Who is Johnny Miller???
Well I researched and this is what I learned.....perhaps you will all have a little more respect for this man!!
Turned pro in 1969 and remained active until early 90's when he "retired" due to knee problems and putting "yips". While on tour: He won 2 majors (US Open '73 and Open '76), he has a total of 25 PGA Tour wins and 32 world wide wins plus 105 top 10's. He played on two Ryder Cup teams, was money leader in 1974 following a season that saw him win 8 times!! He is in the Hall of Fame (1998), designs golf courses and has been with NBC Sports as lead golf analyst since 1990. During his golf career he played with such greats as Jack Nicklaus, Payne Stewart, Tom Watson, John Cook, Mark O'Meara and Seve Ballesteros!!
Is he a "failed" golfer who's comments mean nothing? I surely don't think so!!
Johnny miller was a very competitve golfer and had a lot of raw talent.
Maybe he is a tad jealous as he wishes he could have kept it going for more than a few years near the top.
However as an analyst he is intriguing & knowledgeable and is entitled to his opinion.
He calls things as they are and in fact on many occassions has pointed out that Tiger is still
dangerous and he would not doubt it if he made it back to the top.
If you want "homer" announcer fan than tune into the Yankees radio announcer who will tell you every starter is the greatest player out there..I want NON politically correct commentary!
Exactly!!! Miller can be rather blunt and can let some pretty stupid words escape his tongue. But he does know golf....he has felt victory and defeat as well as injury. Sometimes I feel posters here just take everything the media says as pure attack on Tiger. Hey....he's not the only golfer out there! While we feel he IS golf....there are some excellent challengers waiting to win a tourney taking Tiger by 1, 2, 3 shots. After all....Tiger only wins about 1/3 of the tournaments he enters. 2012 is going to be one exciting year ;-))
It is what it is! Life is good!! And life with Tiger winning is even better!!!
