Holly Sonders is both an American golfer and a media personality known for her appearances on various television shows and for her work with NBC and FOX Sports.
Even though she does not play golf professionally, she is still very important in the sports environment. Here are the things you would like to know about her.
Holly Sonders Biography
Sonders was born on 3 March 1987 as Holly Niederkohr, although she is now known as Holly Sonders. It is a name she adopted for stage purposes. Although not much is known about her personal life and upbringing, it is known that she was raised by her parents, Dan Niederkohr and Sandy Niederkohr.
One thing that is very interesting is that while her father is an optometrist, her mother is a golfer who remained a club champion for 22 years, and this could be one of the things that influenced Holly’s love of the game. This is reinforced by the fact that she entered the sport at the age of six.
For her education, the pretty golfer attended Marysville High School and from there she went to Michigan State University, where she graduated with a major in Journalism in 2009.
Although she wanted to become a professional golfer, Sonders underwent surgery when she was 20 years old. As a result, there was nothing she could do for months, and when she came back, she realized that she couldn’t play as well as expected in order to be successful as a professional. At that moment she learned that her dream of becoming a professional was over.
As a junior golfer, she won the American Junior Golf Association tournaments and the UCT national championships in 2001. In 2007 she reached the round of sixteen at the Women’s Western Amateur and in the same year, she helped the state of Michigan reach and win the Big Ten Championship.
In addition to golf, Holly Sonders also played baseball and basketball before her high school days.
After leaving full-time sports, she began her media work at Golf Channel, where she participated in Morning Drive and worked with Erik Kuselias. Prior to that, she worked at WBNS-10TV in Columbus and then moved to the Big Ten Network. She then moved to KATV, where she worked as a field reporter. And from here she moved to the NBC Gulf Channel. Here she took care of other things like the golf school and playing lessons with the pros.
In 2014 she joined FOX Sports, where she will stay for the next years.
Sonders is married to Erik Kuselias, who is a radio personality. The two have been together for a long time and got engaged in 2012 before they got married. Years after their marriage, Holly and Erik Kuselias have not had any children.
In an interesting twist, she announced on her Twitter that she is filing for divorce from her husband in 2017. Nothing more was said about the union.
