John Maginnes and Brian Katrek will broadcast their SiriusXM satellite radio show Katrek and Maginnes on Tap each day from the expo from 5-7 p.m., and Golf Channel’s Morning Drive show will be doing live remote broadcasts from Grande Dunes on Aug. 31 and the Barefoot Resort Dye Club, site of the championship round, on Sept. 1 between 7:30-9:30 a.m. each day.
