Holly Sonders is employed by the Golf Channel to talk about golf. On Wednesday, though, Sonders had the script flipped as she took the course for the Wells Fargo Pro-Am tournament at Quail Hollow.
Sonders, who can be seen on Morning Drive and School of Golf on the Golf Channel, hit the links alongside Rickie Fowler and GE’s Peter Foss. The trio shot a 9-under, according to Sonders’ Twitter feed.
It wasn’t neccessarily an unfamiliar place for Sonders to be, though. She was a four-year member of the Michigan State golf team, and the Lady Spartans won a Big 10 title during her time there.
A player like Fowler, who is wildly popular both on Tour and with the fans, is always going to draw a crowd. But playing alongside Sonders only intensified that.
