Yeah, they might have played up the 63 a little too much, I thought. Just this side of over-doing it.

But, dude --- this is a 63 we're talking about!

A 63! At a U.S. Open course.

Besides, how would you know? I have uncomfirmed reports you spent the whole time in the media dining room.

Millers is turning into a teddy bear. As one ages, they tend to mellow out, Millers is no exception.

Your way off. His win was monumental for him, Oakmont and the USGA at the time. I watched/listened to Miller over the course of the week and had no trouble with his accounting for himself. It was a grand round and one for the ages. When there are hundreds of reports looking for a good story and you have one of the best in golf history, you are going to be a little repetitive. I liked Millers mix of humble pie and accuracy about the merits of that awesome 63. Only Ben Hogan has ever shot a round like Miller's, hitting the greens and leaving the ball in the right spot on purpose. Shotmaking. It was nice to hear about it again.

Agree entirely - Miller was just fine during the week.

I didn't hear much of Miller when I was there, we didn't get sound in the tent. But i did pass a monitor where they were talking about Baddeley after six holes. The main anchor guy said Baddeley had settled down after the triple nicely. Miller said, "no way, he's still missing putts and not taking advantage of opportunities." He turned out to be right.

Tim, Tom and the rest of the Miller suck-up clan,

Yes, I am calling all of you out.

I will stand by previous comments. Yes, as 63 is great at any tournament, particularly at a US Open final round. But he has been living off that for YEARS. (And, I might add, the conditions WERE much more benign than he accounts for. Just watch the footage on the speed of his putts and the receptivity of the greens - certainly not reminiscent of the Open this year). Aside from that revision of history, how many tears can he cry for this one win which occured DECADES ago? Give me a freakin' break. I will give him a pseudo-pass, b/c of the return to the site of his win, but I don't want to see the tears well-up next year. Enough is enough.

As far as his criticism goes, I will agree that his analysis is usually spot-on. But does he have to be such an ass in the process? Seriously. Show a little tact. I don't mean he has to sugar-coat his commentary, but his comments are intended to shock to some extent, beyond the analysis.

Just curious. How much time did Johnny Miller spend talking about his third round 78?

Jim C...nicely put. The 63 came with no pressure, on a rain-soaked course, when the good lord wouldn't interrupt the greatest round of my life...

I think that his British Open win will ultimately define him when we are all dead and gone.

The US Open was set up differently back then, when I was 8. Don't think it needed to be quite as hellish, given the caveman tools they used as clubs and balls (not to mention those leather bags and stone-aged shoes.)

In 2009, when they return to Bethpage, do you think Miller will talk about his son Andy in 2002, when the younger disciple made the 36 hole cut? Do you think that in 2010, at Pebble Beach, he will reference his last tour win? As much of a moron, err, mormon as they want to make of him, Johnny is fairly self-indulgent. What superstar isn't (and I use that term disparagingly.)

It's always been Johnny's job to be a jerk. Kin of like how it's Baldwin's job to be stupid. You can't criticize a guy for accidentally being nice one day just like you can't criticize Baldwin when he has a smart comment. Johnny won't be nice long and we all know how rare Baldwin's intelligent comments are.

I'll say again that I like Miller. he's less pc and more honest than the other commentators, and that's refreshing. As far as the focus on his 63 goes, I never heard them talk about it much before, and Oakmont was the site of that great round, so it's not surprising that they would have placed a lot of focus on it.

All Johnny , all the time.
You are dead on - while 63 is fantastic, he should have waited until someone else pointed it out - then take the congratulations - don't spout of how great you are yourself - he embarrassed himself again

Judge,

It's the same show every year...Miller reminisces, then sheds a tear, on his "special" 63 and Open win. It got old by about '99. Now it's just downright pathetic.

I agree - PC isn't the way to go. But neither is being a a-hole.
