The folks at Golf Digest have taken a page from The Golf Channel, many pages in fact. The May issue features The Golf Channel’s Holly Sonders as their cover girl. It’s their Fitness Issue and indeed Sonders is fit and Golf Digest takes great effort to show just how fit she is.
Sonders won a NCAA National Championship while playing at Michigan State and has parlayed her”fitness” into a prime gig on The Golf Channel’s Morning Drive as well as many other assignments. She recently signed on with Cobra and joined Blair O’Neil and Lexi Thompson to promote their clothing line.
This is their version of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and just may be their best selling issue of the year. After all, their main demographic, males over forty, would all choose Holly in spandex over Tiger Woods in Nike everyday of the week. And that includes me.
