Jason Dufner rips Johnny Miller, NBC broadcast team

Jason Dufner sent some angry tweets, showing some disgust against the NBC golf broadcasters, Johnny Miller in particular about how they handled the coverage of Shell Houston Open winner Jim Herman.

Dufner was mad because Miller treated Herman as if he was still in Q-School. Herman may not be known to most, but he recorded eight top 25s last season.

In the last couple of years, Miller was voted by fans as the most popular golf broadcaster in Golf Digest’s annual media evaluation. Nick Faldo of CBS surpassed him in 2015 however.

Miller, a two-time major champion in his playing days, has famously been known for his controversial broadcasts as well as his emotional passion for the U.S. Open (He won with the 1973 U.S. Open at Oakmont in remarkable fashion). It seems as if it is a love-hate relationship between fans and Miller as he gets ripped by fans but is always one of the top ranked broadcasters.

As for Herman, he hit a beautiful chip-in on the 16th hole to practically seal the deal for his first PGA Tour victory. The win would also punch his ticket to Augusta National for the Masters.

Can’t script it any better for Mr. Herman.
