Golf is losing an outstanding TV analyst in Johnny Miller, who is retiring after this weekend's tournament in Phoenix.
In a sport with a hoity-toity and pretentious image, Miller was the first commentator to tell it like it is and not fear criticizing golfers in his commentary. It was a brave stance for a former competitor who knew and played against many of the men he was talking about on the broadcasts.
He angered some golfers who weren't used to broadcasters actually telling the truth, being candid and having an opinion instead of milquetoast and disingenuous butt-kissing.
Miller is what all TV sports analysts should be, but fewer and fewer are in today's coverage.
