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.
SiriusXM's Taylor Zarzour and former Tour pros Carl Paulson and Mark Lye will host live pre- and post-round broadcasts from Shinnecock each championship day. Three-time U.S. Open champion and SiriusXM host Hale Irwin will co-host the pre- and post-round show on Sunday.
