SiriusXM will broadcast 44 hours of live and exclusive coverage of the 2019 US Open from Pebble Beach Golf Links in California.

SiriusXM’s programming will feature live hole-by-hole coverage across all four rounds of play – June 13th through the 16th – and will include a playoff if one occurs.

Live championship coverage will begin Thursday and Friday at 10:00 am ET/7:00 am PT and Saturday and Sunday at 1:00 pm ET/10:00 am PT on SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio (Sirius ch. 208, XM ch. 92), which is available nationwide on SiriusXM radios, on the SiriusXM app and SiriusXM.com.

SiriusXM’s Taylor Zarzour and Brian Katrek will anchor the play-by-play broadcast with former PGA Tour pros Carl Paulson and Mark Carnevale serving as the analysts in the booth. A team of roving reporters, including Fred Albers, Maureen Madill, John Maginnes, Dennis Paulson and Bill Rosinski will provide commentary from around the course. SiriusXM’s Debbie Doniger will be on site conducting pre- and post-round interviews with the competitors.

Former Tour pro Mark Lye and Kraig Kann will host live post-round broadcasts each championship day.

The U.S. Open Championship, conducted by the USGA, is the ultimate test of golf for the best players in the world, and truly open, as evidenced by its global qualification process. This year, the USGA accepted 9,125 entries from professional and amateur golfers to compete for its most prestigious championship.

“Pebble Beach is one of the most exciting venues in golf and will be the stage for another terrific U.S. Open Championship. We’re very pleased to expand our coverage this year to deliver listeners more live tournament hours, with a first-rate broadcast team calling more action from the course than ever before,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “Our live play-by-play and the insight of our expert hosts throughout U.S. Open Week will truly bring golf fans inside this event.”

The USGA and FOX Sports have a comprehensive multi-media agreement that makes FOX Sports and FS1 the principal domestic media partner of the USGA. The 119th U.S. Open Championship will air on FOX, FS1, FOX Deportes, FOXSports.com and the FOX Sports App beginning Thursday, June 13 at 12:30 PM ET on FS1. FOX Sports’ broadcast will also air on the FOX Sports channel on SiriusXM (channel 83) through the conclusion of the championship.
