Video: Holly Sonders inks endorsement deal with Cobra-Puma Golf

Published

on

Viewers of The Golf Channel’s “The Morning Drive” and “Playing Lessons from the Pros” may notice that something is different with co-host Holly Sonders.

Sonders has signed a deal with Cobra-Puma Golf, and will be dressed in Puma clothing and use Cobra equipment for her shows.

“(Puma is) really taking clothing to the next level,” Sonders said. “They are really fashion-forward, that’s their main thing. When you think of Puma, you think of loud colors and cool.”

Sonders said she will be wearing a lot of hot pink, golf dresses and a sequin Puma logo, something she hopes will become her identifying characteristic.

“It’s outfit-by-outfit now, but like I said, I want my thing to be the sequins,” she said.

Check out our exclusive video interview with Sonders below:

Sonders’ “Playing Lessons from the Pros” show returns with new episodes next month. She said Rickie Fowler, Natalie Gulbis, Ian Poulter and Graeme McDowell have already shot episodes for the new season.

Morning Drive airs weekdays at 7 a.m. EST, while Playing Lessons starts its new season Feb. 5 at 11:30 a.m.

    Why is this a story? She is only 26 but looks 40. She has that used up & thrown away look to her.

    I’m really tired of Holly Sanders. Too old, not that good looking. So now the morning GC is going to be a fashion show? The new format – Morning Show, etc – is a big waste.

      She’s only 26. I’d like to see your wife/girlfriend if Holly’s “not that good looking”.

    So now Golf Channel “talent” is becoming shills for equipment companies? We can now expect her to mention how “Rickie Fowler got up and down from the bunker, using his Cobra sand wedge and looking colorful in his orange Puma outfit, on his way to a top-15 finish. Oh, and Tiger Woods won by 8.”

    She does seem to wear way too much make up.

    +1 for Lauren Thompson.

    What do you expect from a woman who shacks up with Erik Kuselias. Give me Lauren Thompson any day of the week. She is a true professional. Its funny how equipment companies are now throwing money at people that play golf for entertainment.

    Nothing that a lit’l silicone, Botox and severe cover-up by Covergirl can’t fix!I know what she really looks and acts like, it’s not what you see on TV & Pic’s…!

    At least the bright, obnoxious colors of puma will match her bright, obnoxious makeup that she uses to cover her true face

      You must not watch Golf Channel. This gal is F-I-N-E and she loves golf. She may be the perfect woman. Even if she’s not, she is perfectly F-I-N-E.

The hottest blade irons in golf right now

Published

on

As we’ve written before, the decision to put a new driver in the bag is usually obvious. Better numbers at testing, perceptibly longer distance, and as long as your bank account allows, you have your new gamer.

The iron switch, however, is a trickier beast. Comfort with the variety of shots one needs to hit is key. Confidence from one’s long irons through the higher lofts is critical. Thus, even the greatest enthusiasm for a new iron release isn’t always followed by a mass exodus to gaming said irons. This is doubly true at the professional level, where the tools are critical to a player’s livelihood.

That said, the combination of forum chatter, GolfWRX member enthusiasm, and what we’re spotting in our WITB photos from tour stops are a reliable indicator of the hottest irons in the game.

And judging by the response to our recent Instagram post, we’re confident that these four models are the hottest blade irons in golf right now.

Callaway Apex MB

Buzz built steadily for the Apex MB iron when we first spotted them in Tour players’ bags at the beginning of 2017. The irons are the product of direct feedback from the company’s Tour staffers, according to Luke Williams, Director of Product and Brand Management at Callaway. Forged from 1025 Carbon Steel, these irons have the shortest blade lengths, the thinnest soles and the smallest overall heads in the vast line of Callaway irons. They’re designed for maximum workability, and for tour-desired turf interaction.

Mizuno MP-18

The pioneers of Grain-Flow Forging, Mizuno went back to its roots with the MP-18 iron model. A throwback to the great muscle backs in the company’s history, Mizuno was shooting for the look of an iron that could have been forged a century ago. Shorter blade length, cambered top line, sharp, compact wedges, all combined with the most minimal badging make the MP-18 an instant classic that set the GolfWRX forums afire.

TaylorMade P730

TaylorMade’s P730, particularly in its prototype incarnations, made quite a splash on the PGA Tour. Building on the heritage of the TP-MB irons, P730 was developed in collaboration with the very best players in the world. The 1025 carbon steel irons irons feature a smaller profile and crisper lines than the MB series irons. The combination of the clean look and a deep rear groove have players drooling. Discussing working with Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose to design the P730, TM’s Senior Director of Irons, Tomo Bystedt said, “What these players need is a very low-inertia club that they can [manipulate] easily, almost like a surgeon’s scalpel.” Behold the scalpel.

Titleist 718 MB

“For the purist there is no substitute for a one-piece, muscle back iron. The 718 MB is the modern choice for those desiring a traditional forged look and feel,” says Titleist in the 718 MB marketing materials.

It’s hard to argue with that statement from the “appearance of a classic forged iron” standpoint. Purists appreciate that the 718 MB maintains Titleist’s traditional lofts (the 6-iron is 31 degrees, the pitching-wedge is 47 degrees), thin top-line, minimal offset, and limited badging. In short, if it ain’t broke…
