NBC golf analyst Johnny Miller is opinionated, and not one to mince his words. Just ask Justin (“stay at home”) Leonard and Craig (“puke” swing) Parry. Johnny also let it be known this week that he was the one who told (or just about ordered) the USGA last year to syringe hole No. 7 at Shinnecock on Sunday morning during the round because it had become unplayable. According to Johnny, he told USGA official David Faye he wouldn’t have a U.S. Open if play continued as is on No. 7. Well, the USGA listened and started watering the green during play.

Well, this year, Johnny seems to be firing on all cylinders again. In this careful analysis in Golf Digest, he’s predicted Retief Goosen will win. That prediction is looking pretty good right now, as Retief has pulled into a tie for the lead at -3 with Rocco Mediate. Leaderboard here.

UPDATE: Speaking of predictions, The Golf Blog Doug’s morning prediction (see below) seems to be playing out: only 14 of 154 golfers are currently under par for today’s round, and only 6 are under par for the tournament. And Jason’s prediction of Ben Curtis shooting the high round of 85 was close. Paul Casey shot 85, the high round. Ben Curtis only shot 80.
