U.S. Open Week programming on SiriusXM will feature live original programming starting at 7 am ET each weekday leading up to the Championship. Listeners will hear multiple notable programs and specials including:

  • “Payne and Me” – This hour-long special features Payne Stewart’s longtime caddie, Mike Hicks, taking listeners back to Stewart’s memorable 1999 U.S. Open victory at Pinehurst No. 2. Stewart overcame a one-stroke deficit over the final three holes to win his second U.S. Open with a 15-foot putt on 18, capped by the now indelible image of Stewart’s fist pump on the 18th Hicks shares his memories of that day with SiriusXM’s Gary Williams and walks listeners through Stewart’s play over the final three holes. Though Stewart’s life was tragically cut short in a plane crash just a few months after that 1999 U.S. Open, Williams and Hicks look at the three-time major winner’s long-lasting legacy in the game. Listeners can hear the special anytime on the SiriusXM app:
