Holly Sonders takes pleasure in seeing LIV Golf "kicking PGA players asses"

Holly Sonders, the former Golf Channel and Fox Sports Golf host, believes LIV Golf are well and truly "kicking the PGA Tour players asses" following the 2023 US PGA Championship at Oak Hill.

Sonders took to Twitter to come down hard on the PGA Tour just moments after LIV Golf's Brooks Koepka etched his name on the famous Wanamaker Trophy for the a third time in his career.

Koepka, who now joins Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus in the PGA record books, prevailed by two strokes over PGA Tour duo Scottie Scheffler and Viktor Hovland.

It marks a fifth major win for BK, who now vaults to 13th in the world rankings. 

A total of 16 LIV Golf players took part in the US PGA last week.

Here's how they all got on

Koepka obviously came out on top at Oak Hill but there was also a strong showing from Bryson DeChambeau who finished T4.

Although five LIV players missed the cut, ultimately LIV won the PGA battle and that's all Sonders cares about right now. 

For Sonders, 'shorts, no cuts, 54 holes and taking Saudi money' has had no impact on their ability to impress on the main stage. 

Sonders tweeted:

"I guess 'wearing shorts' and 'playing 54 holes' and 'having no cut' and 'taking Saudi money' didn't really impact their ability to play AT ALL since they're kicking the PGA players asses," tweeted Sonders.

"Had the tweet locked and loaded since The Masters I see?" tweeted one golf fan. 

Sonders replied: "It was just a matter of time."

She also tweeted: "Twitter seems very quiet today since a LIV PLAYER WON THE SECOND MAJOR OF THE YEAR!!!!"

Despite her past roles working on all things PGA Tour, Sonders recently revealed how she earns '20 times' as much from her subscription-only website than she ever has done working in sports media. 

Paige Spiranac has done something similar recently with her new 'Only Paige' subscription site. 

Sonders, 36, exited her role as Golf Channel's Morning Drive host at the end of 2018.

During her golf presenting role at Fox Sports, she once said 'sexual' instead of 'sectional' live on camera and it went viral on social media. 

Sonders poked fun at herself for that. 

She remained with Fox Sports for a while longer on their NFL coverage, but she then left there in October 2019.

But Sonders, who dates Olympic boxing champion Oscar de la Hoya, 50, is now headed back to our TV screens with Xposed Sports

Sonders recently held an Instagram Q&A to talk about Xposed Sports, which will feature topless female athletes from tennis, bowling, golf, billiards, wrestling, boxing, track and field, swimming, basketball, video games, and even skiing.
