Jason Dufner Not Happy with NBC

Following Jim Herman’s victory on Sunday at the Shell Houston Open for his first PGA Tour victory, Jason Dufner decided to take to Twitter for some comments about the broadcast. Here is what Dufner said:

Dufner does make a solid point about the broadcasters treating Herman like he was some type of Monday-Qualifying cinderella story. I have to disagree with Dufner though because the announcers are ultimately just doing their job and the ordinary sports fan has no idea who Jim Herman is. Quite frankly, it makes for better tv when the announcers are able to tell a story about someone who is achieving a lifelong goal of winning on the PGA Tour.

From his famous spat with Ian Poulter back in 2013 to his favorite term of “trap draws”, Miller is not afraid to speak his mind.

Here’s an example of Miller’s swing diagnosis:
