Re: Johnny Miller Master ThreadI figured it out. Johnny is the master of 'retrospective swing analysis.' One shot this weekend, a guy pushed his shot out to the right. Skip to the "Swing Vision" thing or whatever, and Johnny watching the swing, and he says, "ok, let's see if the clubface is open at impact....YEP...there it is...he got too much shaft angle and that leaves the club open." WHAT?!!? Let's see, the ball went right off the tee and you're WONDERING IF the club was open? It'd be a miracle of physics otherwise.
Same thing on one putt Barnes had where he yipped a short putt. Miller starts in, "let's look at that short backswing, and yep, when you do that, it makes you pull the putter up off the ground going forward and you'll push it..." All he does is, watch what happened, and just rationalize what motions will make someone do those things, and pass it off as 'swing analysis.'
And don't get me started on "what do you see, ROGER? How's the lie, DOTTIE? He looks nervous, MARK ROLFING..."
And can someone tell me what the hell they're talking about when they say, "he looks really calm, he's handling this really well, I don't see any signs of nerves..."?? Has anyone ever seen one of the guys have a panic attack and break out in sweats?? Of course, the second a guy drops a shot, they'll say, "you know, you can just see it in his eyes, he's not relaxed, he seems very unsettled...."
Just once, I'd love to show Johnny a reel of twenty swings - just swings - and make him tell me what kind of shot it turned out to be.
