Golf journalism superstar Holly Sonders has turned down a contract extension with Golf Channel to join Fox Sports according to GolfWeek. It is expected that she would be a part of Fox Sports new USGA coverage as well as doing some reporting on NFL Sundays. Ever since joining the popular Morning Drive show back in 2011, she became a very popular figure on Golf Channel. She’s reached over 100,000 Twitter followers making her one of the most followed golf journalists on the social media site.
“we didn’t come to terms,” according to a spokesman.
“We wish her the best in her future endeavors,” he said, declining further comment according to GolfWeek.com.
She has been a pressence on NBC’s popular golf network because of her looks as well as her ability to play the game which she showcases in such shows as “Playing Lessons With The Pros” and “School of Golf”.
So who’ll replace her? It’s anybody’s guess at this point, it wouldn’t surprise me if Golf Channel is scrambling for another woman to replace Sonders. Kelly Tilghman, who is extremely versatile might even be a possibility as dudes do love her looks too although she has a “boyish” voice.
