I knew what Johnny Miller meant during the U.S. Open when he said Rocco Mediate “looks like the guy who cleans Tiger’s swimming pool,” and “guys with the name ‘Rocco’ don’t get on the trophy” during the U.S. Open. He was actually pointing out how incredible a feat it was for Rocco and didn’t mean any harm. Rocco didn’t mind the comments and Johnny wasn’t trying to be a jerk, but he apologized anyway.

Let us not castrate the last golf announcer who has golf balls

I’ve met Johnny Miller a few times. He wasn’t rude to me but wasn’t overly sociable either. I’m sort of on the fence as far as to whether I like him or not. The one thing I’m sure I like about Johnny is the fact that he doesn’t sugar coat his comments during golf broadcasts. He’s the only golf announcer on the planet who who can call out a player, even Tiger, when he deserves it.
