Former Golf Channel host Holly Sonders is moving to greener pastures after a contract extension never came to fruition with her former employer. Instead of working on television programs for the Golf Channel, she will be reportedly taking a job with Fox Sports in which she will be a sideline reporter for NFL games, among other things. Here’s a look at 10 hot photos of the beautiful Sonders, which are accompanied by interesting facts.
With Fox expected to take over broadcasting duties for USGA events, the acquisition of Sonders was one that was necessary to attract golf fans and viewers.
Sonders became a household name in the golf world once she joined the Golf Channel three years ago. Her big break was the channel’s new show, “Morning Drive.”
She is considered to be one of the most beautiful women in the golf world, which is why she frequently does photo shoots for golf magazines and web sites.
But, Sonders is much more than just eye candy. She actually is a very talented golfer. For that reason, hosting shows such as “Playing Lessons” and “School of Golf” were worth watching.
Even though Sonders looks gorgeous in high heels and a dress, she actually prefers to wear casual athletic clothes. That also might explain the two tattoos that she has.
“I’m more of a tomboy than anybody would ever think. I love the high heels, I love the glam, but I also love basketball and track,” Sonders said in an interview with Golf.com.
Because of that, Sonders considers herself to be a jock, which is why it shouldn’t be a surprise that she is so good at golf.
So, if Sonders is a great golfer, why doesn’t she play on the LPGA? The reason is because she had to repair a tear in her knee in college, which unfortunately ended her aspirations to become a professional golfer.
Despite not being able to play professionally, she will still suit up and play a few rounds. In fact, she can be seen playing pro-am tournaments, including the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
One of the best things to happen to Sonders in college before her knee tear was being a part of the 2007 Michigan State National Championship golf team.
Sonders made headline a couple years ago when she got engaged and married to former ESPN TV/radio host Erik Kuselias. The controversy stems from the nearly 20-year age gap between the two. On top of that, Kuselias is regarded as a jerk who sleeps around, although there’s no evidence that he’s done that since marrying Sonders.
