Faldo Miller Trade Jabs in Booth


2007 THE PLAYERSPONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Johnny Miller and Nick Faldo brought their broadcast rivalry to GOLF CHANNEL booth Friday, and it didn't lack for entertainment.
Miller has long been considered the top golf analyst for his blunt talk, and he'll be working the weekend for NBC Sports. Faldo has shown to be is equal with the savvy insight of a six-time major champion. He works for CBS Sports, but handles the Thursday-Friday coverage for the GOLF CHANNEL.
Miller came to the booth late in the second round and rambled on. Faldo took out a pair of scissors and said, 'I found a way to stop him talking, get him to shut up.'
Phil Mickelson played a long bunker shot on the 11th, and Miller noted that he must have caught a tiny pebble because the ball bounced past the hole and into the fringe.
'You can see that from here?' Faldo said.
Miller said it was obvious because of how the ball released.
'I just thought he carried it too far,' Faldo said. 'I'll make a note of that folks -- rocks in the bunker.'
Miller later asked Faldo how a putt would break.
'I'm just following you, Johnny. You know everything,' Faldo said.
'Don't be intimidated,' Miller replied, firing off another playful dig.
'I'm quite happy for you to gas away,' Faldo said
