"This has been an incredibly thrilling year for me, truly a dream season," said Stenson. "I'm looking forward to being on SiriusXM and sharing my thoughts on golf and my unique experiences around the world. It will be fun to bring my listeners along for the ride and give them an unvarnished look at life on and off the course."
"Those who know me know I've never been shy about sharing my opinions," said Poulter. "Now to have my own national radio show on SiriusXM will be great fun. We'll cover all sort of topics from golf to fashion to Ferraris, and we’ll dive into my other interests off the course too, like Formula One and my favorite football club, Arsenal."
"Henrik and Ian are two of the brightest stars in professional golf," said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM's President and Chief Content Officer. "Henrik's 2013 season was one of the biggest success stories in all of sports, and Ian's consistent success and his clutch Ryder Cup play, not to mention the colorful hues of his wardrobe and his penchant for social media, have made him a fan favorite. We're very excited to welcome them to SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio, where they'll offer our listeners unique and enlightening insights into the Tour and their lives."
