I love Johnny Miller but enough of the 63 at Oakmont already! Haven't we all played with that guy that says "oh I once shot (great score for his level of skill) on (very recognizable course)", it is just annoying.

Looks like the hat was a prank by Brad Faxon. http://twitter.com/IanJamesPoulter/status/24423227674

Bummer, I was hoping he really did sign his name that way

Johnny Miller's a very nice douche.

I swear I thought it looked like two sets of handwriting! Looked like someone got Johnny to sign it and then later they wrote in the other part.

Great prank by Fax!
09.13.2010 | Unregistered CommenterTaffy
That is absolutely hilarious. If Faxon was indeed the prankster, his stock continues to rise.

Did Johnny hit a 63?

I like Poulter, however if there's ever a golfer from the "Ministry of Self Importance", it's Ian.

After he won the Accenture this year, one member of the weekly panel on golf.com declared he would not be a factor this year and that no one is scared of him. Rightly so.

He's had a couple of good runner-ups in the last 2-3 years, but let's be honest, he is not a threat!

Johnny is not know for tact but he does know golf and he was bang on the money.

And as for Faxon, "Hallelujah", finally someone in golf has a sense of humor!
JM was very complimentary of IP all day Sunday.

It was friggin funny it was so over the top. Maybe JM wants IP to comp him a few pair of plaid pants.

I must admit, that when I saw the photo, my first thought was "Johnny Miller isn't such a DB after all, and he has a nice self-depricrating sense of humor. Of course, it was a prank.

Brad and Ian actually play a similar game: a little wild with the long game, razor sharp on the greens.

awesome---if that doesn't tell you faxon still thinks like a player, what does?

wonder how Johnny felt abt his "fellow media personality" making that joke at his expense.

Faxon has really improved as a commentator since the start of the year- very much needed at NBC.
The "63 at Oakmont" is classic- well played Brad.

Props to Brad but i was dissapointed it was not Johnny who wrote the cap. Would have made me like him much more.

Faxon could maka a fortune forging checks - the Miller autograph is a perfect replica of the real thing. My dad played Slazenger's Johnny Miller signature clubs when I was a kid, so I know what it looks like - he even nailed that twirl at the beginning of the "M". Maybe Fax had Miller actually sign it?
