Fox Sports' NFL host Holly Sonders has revealed she's not ruling out a return to golf broadcasting after leaving the PGA Tour coverage at the end of 2018.

The Secret to Backspin


Sonders, who used to work as Golf Channel's Morning Drive host, now contributes to the network's NFL coverage and has an upcoming project with the NFL Network.

Golf on Fox Sports, according to Sonders, failed to move in the direction everyone anticipated and that was a reason for her departure.


"The golf at Fox just didn’t turn out to be what we thought it would be," Sonders told Golfweek.

"We hoped we would get more PGA Tour rights, and it just didn’t end up happening. But I wanted to be in the studio and show my personality. It’s what I like to do, make people smile and think and bring the best out of my co-host. 

"There’s nothing like walking out of a studio knowing you kicked ass. And then there are a million projects that are on the table that are more entertainment and fun, so I’m kind of in that world too, and that’s been really good."

Sonders has left the door open for a return to golf broadcasting, though.

"We never say never,” added Sonders. “Golf is still a part of who I am and what got me here."
