The Ohio native, age 32, had interest in playing golf since her childhood. She made quite a name for herself as a collegiate golfer. Winning the 2001 American Junior Golf Association Championship. She also won the National Championship in 2002, which made her famous as a prodigal talent in the golf community.
While playing collegiate golf, Holly took a knock on the knee for which she had to undergo surgery. Physically disabled and high risk of being injured again halted her playing career.
Her major in journalism then came into play as it helped her in the transition from actively playing golf to being a broadcaster.
To pursue her interest in Sports Journalism and broadcasting, she wanted to join the Golf Channel after college but she was rejected and told to gain more TV experience.
With regards to that, Sonders worked as a news broadcaster for a year in Little Rock before landing an interview and ultimately a job at the Golf Channel in 2011.
During her time in Golf TV, she gained popularity as she appeared on many popular shows such as Morning Drive, School of Golf, Playing Lessons with the Pros and many more. Her popularity intensified after she was featured in a cover of Golf Digest in May 2013.
After gaining popularity with her career at Golf TV, she joined Fox in July 2014. Just after joining, she said:
It’s going to be big, it’s going to be fun, it’s going to be loud.’
She was appointed to be a field reporter for 2015 men’s US Open, but she drew criticisms for her inappropriate questions with winner Jordan Spieth. She got out of the blame by stating that she meant it for the winner to lighten up on her Twitter post.
After this, she was moved to the women’s US Open in 2015 and was later promoted to hosting duties, and became a post-game show host from an on-field reporter.

The couple had started dating in 2011 and turned from boyfriend-girlfriend to fiance after their engagement. Much like their engaged news, the couple's getting married also attracted very little coverage.
