Johnny Miller is notorious for often using golf's verboten word, "choke," or variations thereof, even in his always candid analysis of his own playing career. On her blog, weiunderpar.com, Stephanie Wei has posted an interview she did with Miller at the Lexus Champions for Charity event at Pebble Beach last week, and ventured onto the topic, even asking Miller to name names.
Wei: "Who are the biggest chokers?"
Miller: "I'd say Paul Casey might be a guy that you could say really should have won way more tournaments by now. He's just won a couple tournaments in the U.S., and with his talent, he should have won a dozen by now. He's a guy you gotta question. I think he won the Shell Houston tournament with a bogey on the playoff hole. So the bottomline is, something's going on with him. He's got a lot more talent than he's winning."
Give Miller credit for not shying from the question, whatever the consequences.
