Johnny Miller on Paul McGinley: C'mon, tell the truth

September 26, 2014

The honest answer in sports interviews is an endangered species, or so it often seems, and NBC's Johnny Miller called out European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley for evading the truth in an interview with Jimmy Roberts.

McGinley was asked by Roberts "how devastating" was the loss by the Euros' A team of Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia when it appeared it was going to defeat Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley in a morning fourball match.

"It's not devastating," McGinley said. "It's a point loss. No big drama. These are great players. Theyll bounce back. They deal with it week in and week out. It's not a big deal."

Miller's reaction? "It's amazing when asked of Captain McGinley if Garcia and McIlroy losing that match bothered him. He said, 'no, it didn't bother me at all.' It's amazing how people won't answer honestly."
