Tiger won’t top the Bear – Miller
NBC TV analyst Johnny Miller doesn’t think Tiger Woods will ever surpass Jack Nicklaus’s record 18 major wins.
Straight talking NBC TV golf analyst Johnny Miller doesn’t think Tiger Woods will ever surpass Jack ‘The Golden Bear’ Nicklaus’s record 18 major wins.
“I think Tiger will win four more majors and 30 or 40 more tournaments, which is fantastic. But for him to win five and surpass Jack? I don’t think so>”
There’s a great chance he’ll win four and tie with Jack, but I don’t think he’ll get the fifth.” Miller, in his hay-day a multi-major winner and an international star in his own right, told Golf Magazine this week
And when did Miller, think that Woods, formerly an unstoppable front runner heading into the final round, but something of a closing-round choker in his last two events when he was beaten by Englishman Robert Rock in Abu Dhabi and long-time American rival Phil Mickelson at Pebble Beach, would start to win again?
Miller said he wasn’t too sure and said the fault lay not so much with Woods himself but rather in the many new stars breaking into the top echelons of the game.
“You’ve got guys like Rory McIlroy and Jason Day who say, ‘Hey, I can beat you,'” Miller declared.
“They might rethink their bravado if Tiger starts kicking butt again, but right now Rory’s thinking, ‘Hey, old man, you’ve had your day. It’s my time now.’ “
