Two-time long drive world champion Joe Miller told From The Tips he believes Bryson DeChambeau's nearly epic upset in 2022 is still underrated.

DeChambeau was against sizeable odds when he competed in the long drive world championships in Las Vegas last October. 

The 29-year-old is a freak of nature but he was going up against guys with ball speeds that reached an incomprehensible 230mph. 

That being said, DeChambeau got to the final where he was eventually defeated by Germany's long drive king Martin Borgmeier.

Miller, 38, joined our Harry Benjamin and Andy Roberts on GolfMagic's latest instalment of From The Tips.

Miller chatted about the keys to increase your distance, his admiration for Jason "Golfzilla" Zuback who sparked his interest in the sport, his love of barbecue and what he would be doing if he wasn't involved in long drive. 

Of DeChambeau's near miss, Miller told GolfMagic:

"That was crazy, I mean I don't know how much you guys saw of that. That was insane. 
"If he would have come in [to the sport] before COVID-19 then I'm sure he would have elevated it even more then he has done. 
"Of course, it's brilliant for the sport. It's been amazing. It's put more eyes on it than ever before. 
"It's just such a shame that at the time he came into it there almost wasn't a sport to participate in. It had died its death. 
"But he has brought fresh eyes into it. He's got every single player talking about it. Not just about him competing in  long drive but just how far he hits it on tour. 
"It's incredible. Golf is changing again. They [the players] see the benefit behind it. And obviously whether you love him or hate him, he's done amazing things for us. 
"Whether he will continue to participate it in remains to be seen but it was a huge thing for us. 

Miller, who won the 2010 and 2016 World Championships, is not the only big hitter GolfMagic have chatted to recently.
