Truth & Rumors: Johnny Miller-Ian Poulter spat adds excitement to Kapalua

Miller's on-air remarks about Poulter stirred up trouble, according to a report by Golf Channel's Jason Sobel:

While Poulter backed off a putt on the 11th green multiple times, Miller referred to him as “fairly dramatic.” Minutes later, when he took some time to hit an approach shot into the 12th hole, Miller had the following exchange with fellow commentator Dan Hicks:
