NEW YORK — SiriusXM will offer subscribers extensive audio coverage for The 149th Open, featuring 46 hours of live hole-by-hole coverage of the season’s final major championship, taking place July 15th through the 18th at Royal St. George’s Golf Club in Kent, England.
Live Championship play-by-play, featuring The R&A’s @TheOpen Radio broadcasts, will air Thursday through Sunday on SiriusXM’s exclusive “The Open Radio” channel (SiriusXM channel 92).

Championship broadcasts will begin on SiriusXM on Thursday and Friday at 2:00 am ET, and on Saturday and Sunday at 4:00 am ET, and will continue through the conclusion of each day’s play.
Live hole-by-hole coverage will be followed each day by The Open Radio Postgame Show, hosted by Gary Williams and Carl Paulson with appearances by major champions Hale Irwin, Dave Stockton and Scott Simpson, as well as John Cook, who finished as runner up in the 1992 Open Championship.
