    Johnny Miller's Legacy

    Meh....thousands and thousands of more professional golfers than golf broadcasters....to simply say "top whatever" all time the respective categories isn't really a fair measure. Let's look at bigger picture question.....is he higher (from a percentage standpoint) as a golfer in comparison to all the golfers that have every played....or higher on the ladder in comparison to all broadcasters that ever played

    Johnny Miller's Legacy

    I voted broadcasting career because the question is about "legacy" and many, many, many more have had exposure to his broadcasting career than his playing career But, if you want to try to compare the success, I think he was a much better golfer relative to his peers than he was a broadcaster (as a golf professional, he was the top 1% of the top 1%, if not higher......as a golf broadcaster, he was good, but hard to say he was even top 1%).....maybe apples to oranges, but I think there is some sense there. And it also doesn't mean he still didn't shove it in Oakmont....

    2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National - Paris, France

    Who really knows....but, when something significant happens in a relationship (like cheating), there is a tendency for a lot of stuff to be said and come out of the woodwork......Paulina and Brooks' GF may be friends and can make for uncomfortable enviornment and sometimes things are said or implied (for example, Broooks maybe new shit about DJ screwing around....maybe DJ has said shit implying that Brooks may not be so innocent either)....just speculation, but this kind of stuff can happen fast when in a massively stressful situation such as a cheating situation.......people have a tendency to say half-truths or outright lies in attempt to deflect.........you just never know As for the NY Times article............Phil would be my overwhelming favorite for this

    2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National - Paris, France

    DJ and Brooks need to be separated in the team locker room afterwards......WTF is going on? Let's just get to Whistling Straights...set up the course at 7800 yards and fairway width maxed out.....then let's try again.

    2018 Tour Championship - FedExCup Finale

    Great stuff by Jack on twitter......such a class dude, as he makes sure -- after giving Tiger props -- to congratulate Justin on the cup and being world no. 1

    Are PGA Tour Pros Hitting Driver Lower Lately?

    Thanks Colin..really good explanation....shit like this just makes me realize how little I really know about the really fine points of mechanics/spin/ball flight stuff......

    Are PGA Tour Pros Hitting Driver Lower Lately?

    Ummm...I am no physics major, but doesn't "flatter" mean "lower" overall???? Unless, of course, you mean they are just hitting it miles farther and the top point is similar, but just pounded on a flatter trajec....

    Bryson Implodes, Shakes Hand of Winner Only Briefly

    Anyone notice that McEvoy celebrated and threw his golf visor in the air BEFORE Dechambeau putted out to finish his round?

    Phil on Chamblee....

    Although a bit of a cheap shot, I couldn't help but laugh at the "we don't see eye to eye" barb by Phil.....

    2018 British Open Championship at Carnoustie

    Spot on here..........could you say other players felt pressure to play mistake-free golf when going up against Tiger? Yes, absolutely....but "intimidated"? No, not really an accurate description of the situation

    2018 British Open Championship at Carnoustie

    Great tweet from Will Gray below..... Still amazing to me that the USGA has every option outside of cloud seeding at their disposal and still can’t get out of their own way, but Mother Nature turns an Open venue into a lunar colony and the R&A just installs a sign pointing to the first tee.
