Holly Sonders recalls ‘worst day’ of her life after 2015 U.S. Open interview – GolfWRXers react



In our forums, our members have been reacting to former reporter Holly Sanders’ recent comments that an interview with Jordan Spieth following the Texan’s 2015 U.S. Open victory culminated in her experiencing the ‘worst day’ of her life.

Sanders left Golf Channel for Fox before the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay and revealed on Paige Spiranac’s latest “Playing a Round” podcast that she suffered torrents of abuse after she asked Spieth had he packed a fifth outfit for a potential playoff the next day.

“People were like, ‘Oh my God, you are the stupidest person I’ve ever met. What a dumb bimbo’. That was probably the worst day of my life the next day. I remember sitting on the charter flight to the Women’s Open, watching all this come in (even by) some people who were friends of mine in the media. 

To this day, I don ’t even understand. It was a joking question to Jordan, I understood … I got destroyed by that. After that, I was like, ‘Fu*k it.’ If all these people I had given so much to in the world of golf are going to come down on me on that, then forget it.”

Our members have been discussing the comments in our forum – with many surprised to hear she received so much heat over the question.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Showtime9: “I do remember her getting criticized for this, but it was because of criticism of the Fox coverage in general ad how poor it was. That first open at Chambers Bay was awful for Fox (mistaking players, missing shots, Joe Buck in general). I personally go back and forth on whether or not I like Holly or not. I did enjoy her on the Golf Channel, but the decisions she has made with her career in the last couple of years is mind-boggling.”
  • bubbagump: “Meh, no reason to hate or roast the chick, bad days and lessons are all subjective to us, and we have no idea what is involved unless you are in their shoes. All in all, the Fox broadcast was just miserable, and her little botch ranks so far low on why it sucked, it’s not like it was Steve Harvey announcing the wrong winner. “
  • Pingistheanser: “If that’s the worst day of her life, I’d say she’s lived a pretty privileged life. This is why I stopped listening to Paige’s podcast, though. Every episode is a fluff piece where the girl is always the victim, and the boys are all just so mean. Joking or not, it was a dumb question, and she fully deserved to get roasted for it. If she can’t handle people being critical of her, perhaps she needs to lead a more private life and not be in the public eye.”
  • Fade: “Jeez, I’ve heard plenty worse questions.”

    She is horrible…period. But the stupid interviews both Fox and CBS’ Amanda do when a player finishes are a waste.

Rickie Fowler is the next in line to aim subtle dig at Bryson



Following an impressive 64 at 3M Open to hold a share of the 1st round lead, Rickie Fowler joined the many PGA Tour pros to poke fun at Bryson DeChambeau for his controversial comments at last week’s Open.

DeChambeau infamously blasted his Cobra driver, saying “it sucks,” which prompted Cobra rep, Ben Schomin, to respond, “It’s really painful when he says something that stupid.”

Discussing his Thursday round with the media, Fowler commented on how pleased he was with his efforts off the tee.

“That was something that was kind of holding me back from making birdies, moving forward last week. I drove it very poorly Friday and Saturday. It was not my driver’s fault. Had to.”

Who can blame Fowler for getting in on the action, especially since his game seems to be trending in the right direction.

The five-time PGA Tour winner is in search of his first victory since the 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open. He’s off to an awfully strong start.
