Golf great Johnny Miller: 'Nice to be in Portland'

Johnny Miller in town to promote Winco Foods Portland Open

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- Golf great Johnny Miller was in Portland Thursday to help promoted the Winco Foods Portland Open

The recently-retired golf announcer loves coming to Oregon.

"It's just nice to be here in Portland. I've done a lot of steelhead fishing on 3 Rivers by Hebo and also covered the US Amateur when Steve Scott was beating by 6 after 18 and Tiger came back to beat him," Miller told KOIN 6 News. "And the cries from Nancy Lopez when she didn't win the US Open. That was a tough one to cover. But I've had some good experiences in Portland and I love Oregon because I'm a nut with fishing, so I like to come back here."

The Winco Foods Portland Open is set for August 8 through 11.
