Rarely do I read or write about golf in January, but rarely at my house do temperatures fall below zero, providing a frosty glaze to the fallen snow.
So to warm myself up I read a 9,960-word transcript from NBC and Golf Channel in which Johnny Miller, Frank Nobilo and Mark Rolfing discussed the weekend’s Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Maui and the rest of 2014.
Naturally, the subject of Eldrick Tont Woods came up. Below is some of Miller on Tiger. Fore!
