Miller’s putt a feel-good story before U.S. Open
“We were actually debating going to the qualifier because I was an alternate,” Miller said. “We didn’t play a practice round. One of the reasons I did want to go is the fact that I wanted to see the golf course. I didn’t play Sunday. Actually, I took my son and my wife, we went to a Cleveland Indians game. And they lost.”
One of the thrills of U.S. Open qualifying is the chance to be paired with a PGA Tour player - Blake Adams in this case, and he also qualified. But expectations were not terribly high until everything finally fell his way - a great day of driving, making enough putts, finishing on 141 and being told it probably wouldn’t be enough, finding out he was in a playoff, making a 25-foot par putt to stay in the playoff, and then the putt that decided to fall and fulfill a dream.
Miller never imagined being compared with Tiger Woods, for the way the putt dropped was reminiscent of Woods’ chip-in at the 2005 Masters.
“You couldn’t script this story,” he said.
