The 2020 Ryder Cup is just days away, and SiriusXM is covering all the angles surrounding golf’s premier international event. Schedulers postponed the event last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The competition is happening in the U.S. this time around, with golfers flocking to Whistling Straits in Kohler, WI, for the tournament from Sept. 24-26.

“The Ryder Cup is one of the most exciting competitions in all of sports, and we’re thrilled to once again deliver fans the best and most comprehensive audio broadcast of the event,” SiriusXM president and chief content officer Scott Greenstein said in a press release. “Our broadcast team will take our listeners inside the ropes at Whistling Straits, so they can experience all the pressure-packed moments live and feel as though they are walking the course alongside these great players.”

SiriusXM is airing 28 hours of live play-by-play coverage of the event, with first tee announcements set for 8 a.m. ET Friday on channel 92. Greg Norman headlines the broadcast crew as an analyst alongside play-by-play voice Brian Katrek.

Taylor Zarzour and Carl Paulson are working as the hosts and analysts for Ryder Cup morning matches. John Maginnes, Fred Albers, and Mark Carnevale are on-course reporters delivering live shot calls and updates on all the action at Whistling Straits. Colt Knost is filling the role of roving on-course analyst.

Gary Williams, Dennis Paulson, and Mark Lye are hosting a Ryder Cup pregame show each morning leading into the play-by-play. Chantal McCabe is joining the crew to co-host the pregame show on Sunday. After the matches end each day, Drew Stoltz, Jason Sobel, and Gary McCord have fans covered with reaction to all of the on-course play during a three-hour Ryder Cup postgame show.

The Ryder Cup’s turned into a back-and-forth affair between the United States and Europe over the last five years. The Americans came out on top in 2016, but the Europeans held serve three years ago when the event flipped back across the pond.

The on-air spat between SEC Network host Peter Burns and analyst Ben Watson continues to be bandied about in sports media circles, with 93.7 The Fan hosts Andrew Fillipponi and Chris Mueller discussing the topic Tuesday.

“I’m on Team Burns,” Fillipponi said.

“Forget who’s team you’re on,” Chris Mueller said. “I think you’ve do have to keep the wives and children out of this.”

“What are you talking about, keep the wives and out of it?!,” Fillipponi asked.

“Do we believe this is work or shoot here?,” Mueller wondered.

“Oh, I think this is real,” Fillpponi added, which Mueller agreed.

“Do you think a close fist from Ben Watson hit Peter Burns?,” Mueller asked.

“No, I think he picked him up by the lapels,” Fillipponi said.

When the subject of Watson’s religion was brought up, Fillipponi then pointed out the absurdity of the situation.

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

“I think he might have a shorter fuse and not taking in humor that Peter Burns was giving out,” Mueller said.

“It was an innocuous joke!,” Fillipponi stated. “It wasn’t a joke! Why is it in bad taste?”

Mueller then added the idea of Watson’s wife texting Burns insinuates there’s an inappropriate relationship.

Craig Carton: Booger McFarland’s Zach Wilson Analysis ‘An Embarrasment’

Craig Carton

ESPN NFL analyst Booger McFarland raised eyebrows on Monday Night Countdown this week by saying New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has never been held accountable for his actions because he was a “young man who grew up with a lot of money”. WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton called out McFarland’s comments Tuesday as outlandish.

“It was an embarrasment,” Carton said. “Someone should ask Booger McFarland if his kids — who grew up with amazing wealth — have accountability in their lives or if having a little bit of money in your pocket immediately discounts the possibility to have accountability. He’s an idiot and we learned that last night.”

“It’s funny that Steve Young was on the other side of it,” Evan Roberts noted. “Because a long time ago, Steve Young criticized Chris Simms because he’s the son of a famous quarterback.”

“You don’t have to invent reasons for why Zach Wilson isn’t playing well,” added Carton. “Just watch his tape. He’s not playing well. Maybe he’s just not good!”

Carton later said NFL reporters “will try to make a name for themselves by putting out a story” about quarterbacks who take responsibility for their teams failures, while Wilson wouldn’t accept the blame.

Peter Burns and Ben Watson shared an awkward exchange during the halftime show of an SEC Network football game over the weekend, and many are still debating whether Watson walking off the set was serious or not. Count part of the cast of The Greg Hill Show on WEEI as doubters.

“That was a a bit,” Courtney Cox said. “That was absolutely a bit.”

“Yeah, unlike the Chris Rock/Will Smith thing, I assume that was a bit,” Hill said. “I can’t believe that Ben Watson is really angry about that.”

“I dunno, man. There’s been a lot of speculation that it isn’t,” Jermaine Wiggins added. “There are people who are very sensitive about you clowning on them or joking with them. Especially with joking about their wife. Some people can’t handle jokes like that.”

After a back-and-forth with Cox about the legitimacy of the joke, Wiggins concluded by saying for some folks family is off limits.

“I’ve learned something in my 47 years on this Earth: be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”
