I liked Johnny a lot and I will miss him.  When the U.S. Open went to Fox, I really missed him.  I'm sorry that NBC is going with Zinger.  He says one platitude after another and I find him tedious.  I'm a fan of Justin Leonard's skills as an announcer.  And, of course, Tom Weiskopf.  For me, they would have been great picks.  (Feherty isn't available, but he would be my 1st choice.)

“I like who they hired,” Chamblee said. “I think he was the best choice. I think he was the best man for the job. If they had asked me to do the job, I would have done it. But doing what I do, I think it’s the best gig in golf.”

If what he's doing is the best gig in golf, why would he have done it if they'd asked?

 

That makes sense. 🙂
