It was tough watching Phil lose the U.S. Open, almost as tough as having to listen to Johnny Miller all day. Miller in my book has now joined Bill Walton as the best examples of totalCaste System idiots. Always a goofball, Miller was just vicious in his criticism the entire final round toward Mickelson and every other golfer, as if the conditions and the golf course had nothing to do with the high scores. It was the same course where Hale Irwin won with a +7 in 1974, but I somehow doubt there was Caste System announcers back then ripping on the field all day long. At one point Miller even said something to the effect that Tiger Woods must be watching at home and shaking his head. The way he played the first two rounds, Woods would have been lucky to break 80 today. I kept hoping Dan Hicks would reach over and choke Miller, or at least gag him. Mickelson's driving was what cost him the tournament. It wasn't a pretty sight, but it was a brutal course. No one was going to be shooting 68 today.
