I met Johnny at the U.S. Open at Bethpage at the Lexus hospitality tent. Saw him another day just walking around and he talked to me for 20 minutes about GPS and other golf apps for the iPhone. Could not have been a nicer or more humble guy.
I have also spent about 30 mins with him (got a lesson at a tradeshow and we talked the US Open) ... and I guarantee everyone here would love the man if they spent time with him in person. Friendly, funny, knowledgable. His delivery can be grating at time but so what. Would you rather hear McCord's nonsense or Nantz sucking up all the time
Miller was the best player in the world from 73 to 76, he knows of what he speaks. PS Same reason I like Faldo. When you've been the best you have simply earned the right to offer opinion and talk about yourself.
ie Nicklaus is a legend but he can't answer a Question without interjecting himself into it .. still doesn't make me like him any less
