SUPER comments on Venturi. That guy is a stupendous boor --- way too full of himself. I think Miller is too but frankly, his very accurate assessments of players on screen is too valuable to eliminate. We need more of them.

Miller talks just like the guys sitting in the clubhouse/pub do when they watch a telecast. I love it, whether I agree or not. There is no denying that he's honest to a fault and I can see where some folks are put off by that. But mostly he is right on the money and that is so much better than the pablum that golf broadcasters have been infamous for. Like you, I enjoy the Brits - Peter Alliss is my alltime favorite. If only we could get him on CBS instead of Lanny Wadkins. I love Feherty when he just speaks naturally because he is a terribly funny guy. But sometimes he forces it ala McCord, who has become a caricature of himself. Ousty is pretty good, Rankin too. I'd love to see them try to get somebdy else who would speak his mind for better or worse - somebody like Seve.

I think Jhonny Miller is one of the best announcers in any sport. The main reason is he doesn't bow down to today's spoiled players. If he thinks they make a wrong choice he says so. His technical analysis of swings adds immeasurably to the telecasts. I too think Feherty and McCord are great.
Also, I saw Corey Pavin on a telecast once and he was fantastic. He was rigt on the spot where drives landed and gave info on the lie, distance and club selection.

So you rip Venturi for drinking, and celebrate Maltbie for drinking so much he losses a check in the tens of thousands of dollars. And I think a sidebar entitled 'Johnny Says' carries a little more weight than a web blog with 'Kiel Christianson'.

Great blog. So many blogs like yours cover subjects that aren’t found in magazines. I don’t know how we got by 15 years ago with just newspapers and magazines.

Q: What kind of person likes Johnny Miller's constant self fluffery?
A: Other know-it-alls who lack conscientiousness and love the sound of their own voice.

I prefer a more enlightened, self-deprecating type of announcer. Johnny Miller, please shut up.
