SiriusXM Names Greg Norman as Lead Analyst for Masters

SiriusXM announced today that World Golf Hall of Fame member Greg Norman will be the lead analyst for SiriusXM's play-by-play audio broadcasts of the Masters Tournament this April. Norman will join play-by-play announcer Brian Katrek in the broadcast booth at Augusta National Golf Club all four days of Tournament play, April 8-11. Norman joined SiriusXM in 2018 to launch his own talk show, "Attack Life Radio," which he hosts monthly on the SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio channel.

From 1981 through 2009, Norman competed in 23 Masters Tournaments and played his way into contention for a green jacket on many of those April Sundays at Augusta National. In his first Masters in 1981, at the age of 26, he finished the opening round tied for first with Johnny Miller, Curtis Strange and Lon Hinkle and finished the Tournament alone in fourth. It was his first Masters performance that inspired his lasting nickname, "The Great White Shark." Over the two decades that followed, he had eight top-5 finishes at the Masters, including three runner-up and three third-place finishes.

"Augusta is one of the most special places on earth, and so much of my life and career has been dominated by memories playing at the Masters. I am so humbled and honored to be returning to the Tournament, but this time in the capacity as lead analyst for SiriusXM's first Masters broadcast," said Norman. "I hope my experience with the course and playing in the Tournament 23 times will lend a unique voice and perspective to the listeners, so that they can feel and live every moment as if they were there."

"Greg's experience playing in the Masters and his knowledge of Augusta National are exceptional. We couldn't be more thrilled to have him as our lead analyst for SiriusXM's first Masters production," added SiriusXM's President and Chief Content Officer Scott Greenstein. "Greg's in-the-moment perspective on the action as it happens on the course elevates our broadcast and ensures our listeners will be tuning in to a superb level of coverage."
