Johnny Miller to Coach Tiger?

14 posts in this topic

This guy is just insufferable......

"According to the October issue of Golf Magazine , Tiger Woods once asked Johnny Miller to be his coach.

"Not many people know this, but when Tiger had been on TOUR for two or three years, his people called and asked if I would give him lessons on short irons," Miller said in the magazine. "Jack Nicklaus told him I was the best short iron player ever — a pretty great compliment."

Miller added that he declined because of his commitment to NBC as an announcer and a desire to spend time with his children and grandchildren.

However, if given the opportunity now, Miller said he would be interested.

"He’s the guy I’d like to help most," Miller said in the story. "I’ve been watching him since he was in junior golf. I know all the swings he’s had. I think I could help him get back to his natural swing, not the swing someone else wants him to make. I’m open to helping him."

Enough already Johnny!!!!

Doubt they spent much time together. Tiger would have won the 2007 U.S. Open a Oakmont by like 10 shots.

Chris diMarco said this morning on Morning Drive that he thinks that Johnny is "misremembering" the whole thing.  He doesn't believe that Tiger's people ever asked him for any help at all.

Miller's a tremendous player but not a good enough instructor to coach Tiger, here's a good reason why

I don't know about the Tiger thing but Johnny Miller was one of the best if not the best iron player in modern times.  I think his final round of 63 in the "73" US Open record still stands (I tried to confirm this is still the final round record for the US Open but couldn't find it).   Whether Johnny is a teacher or not I don't know but I enjoy his commentary.

Looks like Tiger is playing some pro-combos or something there.  Thats news to me.

Just the 2-iron (and the 3-iron at a few events, I believe).

Haha, Beach!  I am going to be able to school you every time out once I learn to start controlling the ball while it's on the face!  Your loss!
