Quick 9: The best Johnny Miller quotes

Who was Johnny Miller talking about when he said, 'If Ben Hogan saw that, he'd puke'? Quick 9 runs down the outgoing pundit's best moments
 

Say what you like about Johnny Miller, and plenty do, but you can’t say that he doesn’t tell it like it is. He might not always have been the most popular with the players but you won’t die wondering what he means.

After 50 years on the road, including two major wins and the last 29 in the booth for NBC and the Golf Channel, he has decided to hang up his microphone and spend a bit more time with his 24 grandchildren.

“All my friends were retiring, and it got to the point where I was like, ‘Hey, how come I’m not retiring?’ It’s been a great run. I’ve done everything I can do announcing wise.”

Quick 9 takes a look at some of his best/worst/most memorable bits…

1. Lefty’s other career

Miller on Phil Mickelson’s scrambling skills at the 2010 Ryder Cup:

If he couldn’t chip, he’d be selling cars in San Diego.

2. Parryed away

Miller on on Craig Parry’s mechanics at the 2004 Ford Championship:

The last time you see that swing is in a pro-am with a guy who’s about a 15-handicap. It’s just over the top, cups it at the bottom and hits it unbelievably good. It doesn’t look … if Ben Hogan saw that, he’d puke.

The Aussie had the last laugh, holing a 6-iron from 176 yards in a play-off.

3. Brookline bawler

Miller on Justin Leonard’s efforts in a Ryder Cup fourball with Hal Sutton at Brookline:

My hunch is that Justin needs to go home and watch it on television.

They actually halved their match and the following day Leonard holed THAT putt against Jose Maria Olazabal. Miller quickly apologised.
