A straight-shooting look at the hottest issues and controversies in golf today, from the game’s most popular and provocative commentator

Johnny Miller’s brilliant career as a professional golfer—including U.S. Open and British Open championships—has been followed by a fourteen-year tenure in the broadcast booth as America’s most respected television golf analyst. In I Call the Shots he offers his no-holds-barred opinions, with trademark insight and wit, on all things golf: from the decline of playing etiquette to boorish fans; from legendary victories by the game’s greatest champions to monumental chokes that have destroyed careers; from the current state of the PGA Tour to the future of the game itself. In this completely revised and updated paperback edition, Miller offers his opinions on Tiger Woods’s latest struggles and the 2004 Ryder Cup in an all-new chapter.

Packed with the best and worst Johnny has seen in more than thirty years as a champion player and cherished announcer, I Call the Shots is a must-read for any golfer or fan of the game and is sure to be fuel for controversy and conversation on fairways, in locker rooms, and at nineteenth holes across the country.
