“I really pick him to win six or eight tournaments in the second career, at least,” Miller said on Golf Channel’s Morning Drive. “That's my feeling."
True, a cynic could say Miller -- who serves as host for the Safeway Open, the event Tiger has circled as his return target -- is simply drumming up support for the tournament. However, no one has ever accused Miller of lavishing hyperbolic praise on a player. Moreover, Miller has been on point with his past Tiger predictions, so let’s not dismiss his claim.
"If he's going to come back and play some kind of a schedule, you cannot count Tiger Woods out. Talent always comes to the surface if you give it a chance," Miller said. "They always say a great fighter, a boxer, always has at least one more great fight in him, and I think he has more than one great fight.”
Woods’ last victory came in 2013. He’s currently three behind Sam Snead’s 82 wins for most in PGA Tour history.
