Two-Time Masters Champion Ben Crenshaw Joins SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio

NEW YORK, Dec. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM announced today that World Golf Hall of Fame member Ben Crenshaw has joined the fast-growing roster of superstar hosts on SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio (channel 93 on XM, channel 208 on Sirius Premier).

The two-time Masters winner will host Crenshaw on Golf, a one-hour show airing every other week on SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, with the first episode debuting Wednesday, December 11 at 1:00 pm ET.  Crenshaw and co-host Ed Clements will talk about today's game and its players, share stories from Crenshaw's many years in the sport and discuss golf course design and his favorite venues around the world.

"As a regular listener to SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, I'm looking forward to launching my new show and having the chance to discuss golf architecture, history, instruction and current events on the Tours," said Crenshaw.  "I'll also have some special friends join me on the show from time to time." 

"Few people can offer a more experienced and enlightened perspective on golf than Ben Crenshaw," said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM's President and Chief Content Officer.  "From his many distinguished years as a player and the dramatic Masters and Ryder Cup wins, to his knowledge of courses and design, listening to Ben talk about the game is a great treat for anyone who loves golf.  We're very pleased to give SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio listeners access to his many excellent stories and thoughts on the sport through its history and today."

Among the many highlights of Crenshaw's distinguished career are his two victories in the Masters. He claimed his first, a two-stroke victory over Tom Watson in 1984, with a commanding performance on Sunday at Augusta. His second, in 1995, was perhaps the most emotional victory of his career, coming a week after the death of his mentor, Harvey Penick. Crenshaw won 19 tournaments during his career on the PGA TOUR and finished in the top ten 27 times in major tournaments.  He played on the U.S. Ryder Cup team four times (1981, 1983, 1987, 1995).  In 1999, he captained the U.S. team to one of the most remarkable comebacks in Ryder Cup history, when the Americans won 8 ½ of the final day's 12 points to win the event at The Country Club in Brookline, MA.  Crenshaw was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2002.

Today, Crenshaw competes on the Champions Tour and is a noted golf course designer. His firm, Coore & Crenshaw, has built championship courses throughout the U.S. including Friar's Head on New York's Long Island, Bandon Trails in Bandon, Oregon, and the Sand Hills GC near Mullen, Nebraska.

Launched in 2005, SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio offers listeners nationwide live play-by-play coverage of PGA TOUR events as well as major championship tournaments, plus live call-in talk shows offering news, analysis, equipment reviews and more.
