Holly Sonders with Michael Breed and Martin Hall on Golf Channel

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

Saw Holly on 2 different shows with Michael Breed and Martin Hall as their "student".  One was how to get rid of a slice and she actually hit a shot, swing looked pretty good.  I wonder if guys are calling in saying they want to see more Holly so they're putting her in more golf segments or if she asked to get more TV time.  For those guys that don't know who she is:

Holly Sonders joined Golf Channel in January 2011, providing tournament and news updates as well as the top headlines of the day at the bottom of the hour during Morning Drive. Sonders comes to Golf Channel from KATV in Little Rock, Ark., where she was a news and sports reporter. Sonders also served as a sideline reporter for the Big Ten Network during the 2009 season.

 

An Ohio native, Sonders began her career at WBNS-10 TV in Columbus working on “The Average Joe Sports Show,” a live, weekly television show that covered statewide athletics on the high school and collegiate levels. A graduate of Michigan State University with a degree in Communications, Sonders was a four-year member of the MSU Women's Golf Team and helped the Lady Spartans to a Big Ten Championship in 2007.

I like Holly.  Not only is she really easy on the eyes, she also makes the show more fun.  Breeder is too high-strung and I find Martin Hall to be a grumpy old man.  Holly is bright, bubbly and fun though.  I hope we see more of her.

They should just get rid of Breed and Hall and just have an instruction show with Holly and Lauren Thompson.  Id watch.

Holly seems genuine.

 

Lauren does not seem genuine in her speech.

 

More Holly.

Agree.  Holly has a good golf swing and clearly knows he stuff.  Lauren, on the other hand, I feel like she is just a model who The Golf Channel hired because she is pretty.  Im OK with that...

Wait...she plays golf too???  Dayam...I love you Holly.  And yes, I do mean it in a stalkerish kind of way.  The way I look at it, if I'm going to jail for stealing a car, I'm taking the Ferrari not the Pinto.  At least my public defender won't laugh at me for being stupid and having bad taste.

I agree she does come across as more genuine, maybe being a member of a DI golf team helps her be more comfortable around the golf stuff.

Since when is that a bad thing?  BTW, Lauren retweeted me the other day, so, yeah, shes cool.  Im pretty sure she has a crush on me. e3_rolleyes.gif

Holly should be on every show as far as I'm concerned. If she was a better golfer and competed on LPGA, she would be a worldwide superstar. It would be like Gulbis who?

Lauren is a very prety girl but doesn't know anything about golf. Producers definitely feed her with stuff to say. She seems very nice though

I saw Holly at the PGA Merchandise show. Let's just say I think I've seen thicker straws than her legs. The TV must truly add ten or twenty pounds, and she needs all of 'em.

Someone needs to post some photos of her follow through about 3secs after hitting the hybrid on Breeds show because I think it might be the 6th key (only for female members of course) for hitting good golf shots.

Watching it now...it might be the only key if it's as good as I'm hoping it is.

As I've said before, TGC is a wasteland Monday to Wednesday ... the more hotties they pepper the talking head shows with the better.

Wait, so are you saying that you DON'T like seeing Tin Cup three nights in a row every other week?

 

(I kinda like the "On The Range" show they've started doing Wednesday nights this year)

Oh, and speaking of hotties, I am also a big fan of Lara Baldesara (sp?) on the Grey Goose show.  Love that Canadian accent.

post #17 of 20

She's decent. Wears makeup like its going out of style. Cool that she actually partakes in playing though.

 

I'm a Wynn McMurray fan myself.

Yeah, that is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

I'm a Holly fan.  Although she has good angles and not so good ones.  She does love to stick that chest out

 

I was a big Wynn fan but then one day her fake announcers voice and phrasing hit me like a ton of bricks and now I can't watch her.  Well I should say listen to her.  It is so over the top and put on that it drives me nuts.  She's like the female version of Ryan Seacrest.  Yucking it up with her announcers voice.  It's only getting worse.

 

Here she is in 2009.  It's there, I can hear it but it's not too bad:

 

Now listen to her in 2012.  All it takes (for me)  is her first few words.  It's such a calculated fake announcers voice.  Yuckity Yuck: http://www.golfchannel.com/media/dot-com-extra-2012-season-preview-010312/

 

I hope I don't ruin Wynn for any of you fans, but for me I can't listen anymore.
