Miller extends deal with NBC

Johnny Miller has signed a three-year contract extension to continue as lead golf analyst for NBC Sports, also making appearances on its sister channel, the Golf Channel.

The contract runs through 2017, with an option that would allow him to extend his contract for another year.

“I was thinking, ‘I’m 67, I’m getting up there,'” said Miller, who was born in San Francisco, played college golf at BYU and lives in Napa. “I didn’t know how my marbles were going to be at that time. So far, I haven’t lost too many.

“I’ll be the first guy to quit this if I start losing it.”

Miller, who started broadcasting in 1990, won 35 times in his professional career, including the 1973 U.S. at Oakmont and the 1976 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale.

In 1973, he became the first player to shoot 63 in a major championship, a record that has been tied numerous times but never broken, in the final round of the U.S. Open.

Miller, a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, is part owner of Silverado Resort and Spa, and served as host of the Open when the first event of the 2014-15 PGA Tour season was played on the North Course there earlier this month.
