NBC's Johnny Miller suggests Tiger Woods play at Bay Hill

Over the weekend NBC's Johnny Miller strongly encouraged Tiger Woods to come back for Arnold Palmer's tournament later this month rather than diving right into the Masters.

Let's give Johnny the benefit of the doubt and not point out that Arnie's event is on NBC and the Masters is on CBS.

Here's Johnny:

"Tiger, with his talent, has the ability to have a big break and come out of the box pretty good. But I don’t know. If he wants to win at Augusta, which he does, he’s going to have to play Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill tournament. No doubt about that.

"I really believe he needs to get one tournament under his belt - get the cobwebs out, get his confidence going. And you can’t do that at the Tavistock. You can’t do that playing at Isleworth. You’ve got to play it under competition.

"Even if you don’t play well at Bay Hill, you just have to get things going, get the train going down the tracks. The big thing of Bay Hill is that he’s got to go through all the hoopla, not just of the sports coverage but the entertainment coverage. Get it out of his system. Answer the questions. Get it behind him. Go to Augusta and go ahead and win that Green Jacket."
