Tim,

I agree with you 100 percent on Miller. I've often said that he's the best commentator in golf; his honesty is refreshing and his knowledge of the game formidable. To add to what you said, his knowledge of technique and shot selection is impressive as well; he will point out things that most commentators do not understand or do not discern.

Here, here! Miller is the best. My second choice would be Peter Alliss but unfortunately we won't be hearing much from him anymore. Sometimes Faldo tries to put on the charm a bit too forcefully for my tastes, but as his confidence grows that should dissipate. Azinger was often able to provoke him out of that mode. Shame he's out of the booth now.

Shanks,

I actually had forgotten about Alliss; yes, he's one of a kind. His combination of accent, good-natured charm and wit cannot be duplicated.

Miller sucks. If I here that guy cry one more time about his US Open win, I think I'll "puke". Saying something controversial for the sake of saying something controversial doesn't equal great commentary. I'll agree, he has some good analysis on occasion, but it is overshadowed by his overbearing criticism.
And can someone explain to me his agenda on trying to bring back the "reverse C"?

Personally, I was fond of Alliss, because he blends a knowledge with some wit and charm. I think Faldo has potential if he wants to take broadcasting seriously, based on that same premise. I like Ian Baker-Finch for his analysis without being a boor, and obviously McCord and Feherty for keeping it light. Rankin isn't bad.

Tilghman doesn't cut the mustard, neither does Clampett. Not a Dottie Pepper fan, and Koch doesn't impress me as being "better than most".

Speaking of Kelly Tilghman (who is only slightly better than she was in January now that she's getting past the star-gazing), what is up with her insistence on saying the word "championship" at every possible moment? It drives me crazy.
