Miller was certainly a 70s generation player so my memories are dim, but I remember him pulling a rabbit out of a hat in 1994 winning at Pebble Beach. Maybe I have listened to him too much, but it seems like he isn't as critical of the tour players as he was in the past. He certainly is still the "expert" though.

There are some good accounts of Miller's prowess as a golfer. He lived in Jack's shadow much like Mikkelson lives in Tiger's. He was at one time one of the greatest iron players. Literally, his shots would end up inches from the cup. He knew the yardages so well he didn't need his caddy half the time. I like Johnny, he is much better than the wannabees like Jim Nance. David Feherty is my all-time favorite!

Couldn't look at a two foot putt without throwing up on his shoes.

Other than that I enjoyed the tournament.
+1 Half the time he is talking he makes me want to puke.

Not a fan at all of Jim Nantz either. I am bored to death with his "automated cookie cutter" voice and style. I am a big fan of the Masters and appreciate its history. But the broadcast is a sporting event not a religious ceremony.
