Norman to Share his Insights from the Booth Alongside SiriusXM Play-by-Play Voice Brian Katrek all Four Days of Tournament Play
West Palm Beach, Fla. – Greg Norman today announced he will join SiriusXM as the lead analyst for exclusive 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.
In January, SiriusXM announced its new agreement as the exclusive audio broadcaster of the Masters Tournament. SiriusXM will present its first live play-by-play broadcasts in April as part of its expansive coverage of the 2021 Tournament.
“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 Greg 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.”
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.
“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,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “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.”
SiriusXM’s exclusive Masters week broadcasts will be available to listeners nationwide on their SiriusXM radios (channel 208 or 92), on the SiriusXM app and at home with Amazon Alexa, the Google Assistant or however they stream at home.
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. His next hosting appearance on SiriusXM will be this Thursday, March 11, following the first round of THE PLAYERS Championship.
On Wednesday, April 7, during Masters week, Greg will host a special edition of Attack Life Radio live from Augusta National.
