Re: Johnny Miller Master Thread

Miller does call it like he sees it...balls and strikes.


He does go too far at times....usually when he's trying to be the expert...and yes, he does repeat himself too often.

He's okay to me...but he's not my favorite by a larger margin.

Faldo is my favorite announcer. CBS is great as well.
Yeah that's true too. I guess there's only so much you can say in 11 hours. Yeah I like Faldo too.

Re: Johnny Miller Master Thread

Thanks for that link. I hadn't seen the article. I agree with virtually everything in Part One, other than I certainly prefer Baker-Finch to Clampett.

The summary of Feherty is particularly astute. His writing is very creative, much better than his on course commentary, although I didn't appreciate the gross political pseudo joke in his writing last spring. Feherty as a commentator was far superior before he thought he had a reputation to uphold. Now there are tons of forced comments every week, and his coddling of Tiger is like a parody.

I'll look forward to Part Two, with a prediction I probably won't be in as much agreement, once he gets to the NBC guys.

Re: Johnny Miller Master Thread

I hate the way he's always telling us what the pros should have done. If he really was as good as he wants us to think, Tiger would be chasing his records instead of Jack's.

I will give him credit though...at least he still refers to "fairway woods" and not "fairway metals" as some of the LPGA announcers do.

Re: Johnny Miller Master Thread

I grow weary of his instant assessment of a players swing. He must be able to see a swing in real-time and before the ball hits the ground he can already deliver a detailed analysis of what they did wrong and exactly how to fix it.

I wish there was a "mute Johnny Miller" button on my remote.

He's certainly not the only one to do this though. Some things they go overboard with.

I liked when I heard Faldo the other day say, "Looks like he's got an 8-iron from here." when someone was readying to tee off on a par 3. Then when Dottie (or whoever it was) confirmed it was an 8 he said, "Hey, I know the lofts."

I don't know where the hell he was sitting, but I'm sure it was either a tower or he was looking at the same picture we were on one of his monitors, and either way I wasn't buyin that he can tell a 7/8/9 apart while a player is twirling it in their hand for a second.

Re: Johnny Miller Master Thread

Johnny comes off as arrogant, bitter, and he gives off a negative vibe....but he does add entertainment value to the telecast; you never know what will come out of his mouth.

I started laughing last weekend when he kept calling shots "skanky". I thought that word only applied to loose women but apparently I'm wrong. It cracked me up when I kept hearing "That was a seriously skanky shot Dan".

Re: Johnny Miller Master Thread

Johnny is the man! He adds good color, which is his job. Yeah, he might come across as arrogant and an a**, but I find it kind of refreshing someone isn't afraid to be that way at times, especially when it is so entertaining.....

Anyone he berates deserves it everytime. What, are we so sensitive we can't accept a former good golf pro like Miller be critical of another golf pro at times?

I think my personal favorite was years ago at the Ryder Cup he suggested (I believe) Justin Leonard? to just go home...... (cause he was playing so badly)

Here's to Johnny sticking around for many years to come.

Yeah, of course, the next day Leonard sank the famous putt that won the Cup for the US, so...

Re: Johnny Miller Master Thread

Is it me, or does Johnny Miller get a little too excited when analizing* players physiques. Now that Tigers MIA, I see that he's found a new intrest in Camilo's "thrusting torque filled thighs". Im not trying to pick on Miller, but it's just too easy. And on that matter, dont you think there is about 100 better golf announcers out there?

Yes ...you are correct sir!!!

Re: Johnny Miller Master Thread

I'm sure there were more, but I only heard him say "trap draw" once today. And I wonder, could he have stuck his nose up Jack's ass any further?

He likes his "muscular arms" also.
It was a nice of Miller when he said he missed Tiger and told him (if he was watching) to "get back out here". To be cynical, the comment could have been self-serving to get better ratings, but I thought it was a welcoming gesture.

He did go off on someone yesterday for sole-ing (not a real word, I don't know how to spell it) his wedge too deep in the rough.

I thought the same thing. It sounded awkward.

Re: Johnny Miller Master Thread

I must have had my Johnny Milter working today - I didn't even notice him making the same man love comments Dan Hick was (as I ranted about in the Honda Classic thread). Weird.
