Johnny Miller talks Tiger Woods

February 6, 2010 |  2:21 pm

Johnnymiller_150 With NBC taking over Northern Trust Open golf coverage for the rest of the weekend at Riviera Country Club, analyst Johnny Miller made his first national television appearance of the new season. Host Dan Hicks asked Miller his opinion on Tiger Woods. Miller had one.

"Couple of things for sure," Miller said. "He's damaged the game of golf. It's been hurtful. He's lost a lot of respect and his integrity is pretty shattered right now. And more importantly he's injured his marriage and his family. 

"He'll come back strongly because he's got so much talent, so much game but he'll have to go through a lot of media blitz. He's become almost bigger than golf, Entertainment Tonight, People Magazine type of thing. He's going to have to face the music and show he has done anything he can to repair his marriage and have some genuine sorrow in his voice and feeling from the heart to show he can change and make his life better."
