That picture of Ms. Sonders still has me thinking about the utility of cable TV...

Attention Golf Digest editor...Stephen Curry's name is misspelled.
12.26.2013 | Unregistered CommenterKevin part deux
Try Brooks Koepka..... and Stephen Curry.....what does it mean when you are posting the "best shots of 2013" and you can't even spell their names? These are not the best images of 2013, just the only ones that appeared in Golf Digest.

Gotta wonder what Tiger said to Arnie in that moment after Bay Hill W that cracked up the King. any ideas??
12.27.2013 | Unregistered CommenterMedia driven
Figure it had to be XX-rated
12.27.2013 | Unregistered CommenterMedia driven
Fun mix. Well done.

I would like to know the $ amount Ms Sonders spent on cosmetic surgery and is teeth whitening covered under the GC employee health plan. Does the ACA cover teeth whitening?
12.27.2013 | Unregistered Commentervwgolfer
Only two images for me, and I've not looked at the link: Justin on 18, his second, his finish position...a golfer in control under the gun, brilliant, and two, Phil's 3 wood on Sunday, a gambler playing his game and calling the table. Great stuff.
12.27.2013 | Unregistered Commentermeefer
You could have 31 photos, or more, pics of Holly and I would never get tired.
My only question is related to her choice in partners.
Erik is such a loser. I can only wish for a change of heart....or something.
12.27.2013 | Unregistered CommenterStanley Thompson
I really liked those reverse image shots of the galley from The Masters----
12.27.2013 | Unregistered Commenter@MichaelLSR
Stanley-- quick question:

Are you watching her in HD?
No one should be watched in HD! That would have included Grace Kelly and Ingrid Bergman.
12.27.2013 | Unregistered CommenterKLG
KLG -- even Sasha Grey?
Hey d Mac. I think making health insurance cover people with gender issues a good idea, just like covering shackle fords readers Viagra prescription.
12.27.2013 | Unregistered CommenterVwgolfer
I'd watch her in any D.
12.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterStanley Thompson
So, I was vaguely familiar with the name, which seems to be link-bait on the interwebs. From the same sources I see that Ms. Grey has been quite the acrobat on film, as it were, and a likely erstwhile favorite of...well, never mind. I do see in the photograph from the 2010 AVN Awards Show on her wiki page a passing resemblance to a certain Ms. Jameson, especially around the eyes. I'll pass, thanks all the same.
12.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterKLG
VW, what ''cosmetic surgury'' do you think she has had? It certainly isn't any breast augmentation.

And as to ''teeth whitening''!?!?!? REALLY? Are we going after braces, too? What is wrong with wanting to look good?

Aren't we going to assault hair colorimg?

Man.....
12.28.2013 | Unregistered Commenterdigsouth
@ dIgs I am not so sure about Ms. Sonders. Perhaps you did not see any pictures for Ms. Sonders when she played golf at Michigan State? She certainly not as well endowed as she is now.
All that said....I find her to be down to earth and, unlike other TV personalities, without an attitude, which so many of them get.
12.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterStanley Thompson
@digsouth, don't you live in Texas - home of the makeup trowel and mandatory 30-minute hairspray application?
12.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterCarl Peterson
The makeup trowel...a good standby when Homer Simpson's makeup gun is in for repairs.

Holly is nice to look at, I'll give her that. As to her true goals ambitions? Is she striving to become TGC's "alpha-babe reporter" who can actually play and whom the players WANT to be interviewed by...lured by some impressive cleavage and daisy dukes perhaps? Or does she see herself on the E! network in 5 yrs talking about celeb fitness and aesthetic salon reviews? Or what about Fox needing some talent? She does have some experience in front of the camera...y'never know.

Only she knows where she wants to go...but one thing doesn't sit right with me. Getting cosmetic chest augmentation is just a tad counter productive to technical golf improvement goals...Mr B Wright had a point all those years ago and got fired for it in this PC day&age.

She does seem like a nice girl...great in front of the camera... but the short go-go dancer outfits are better suited to the E! or some other cable channel imo. Standing next to Martin Hall makes for quite a contrast some days.

@ Johnnycz Well put
Carl: You refer to the Dallas area, and good description...

Johnnny You think she has had chest work? I don't. And the shorts? It's the style. Go to any-mall-usa and look around ( not now, in the dead of winter)
12.29.2013 | Unregistered Commenterdigsouth
Johnnny and Po-

Ok, I'll dig up some old pix, but the average person does not ''fully grow up'' until hey are 23 or there abouts.
12.29.2013 | Unregistered Commenterdigsouth
@ digs It is sort of like a driver that exceeds the COR limitations.......might be fun to play around with once in a while, but you can't put it in tournament play against the real thing. . If they don't have boobs! You can find some pics of here in college, before she bought the job.

http://www.msuspartans.com/sports/w-golf/spec-rel/071906aaa.html

Here you go Digs.......now you tell me she just simply 'grew up'........but if you believe they are real, then I don't really play golf, and not very well even when I do. But I do love to gamble and have a suitcase of money. I usually get 6-7 a side, but will take only 5. for a large dime. Automatics?

Enjoy. Hope your recovery is still progressing.

Happy New Year to all! Including Ms. Sonders!
Pro , I'm sorry but no sale based on that picture. As a soph, she was 17-20, probably 18 or 19, and that blouse and (probably wearing) a sports bra, which tends to ''flatten'' does nothing compared to the $200 gear they pack 'em in for subtle cleavage reveals.


And Happy New Year to you all!
12.29.2013 | Unregistered Commenterdigsouth
"flatten"? That would be like letting the air out of a Euc truck tire.! Ain't no sports bra in the world that would "flatten" those puppies!

All in good humor. All The Best in the New Year.
You guys are bordering on getting a little creepy here.....


Having said that, Pro's link reveals an neat factoid, real name -- Holly Niederkohr!!

Must be a close relation to Douglas Neidermeyer?!?!

"At a Glance
Enters her senior season with a 78.47 career stoke average ... Has one career top-10 and four top-20 finishes ... Most experienced Spartan with 77 collegiate rounds played."

Guessing the Spartans never did much on the NCAA ladies golf scene...
12.29.2013 | Unregistered CommenterDTF
Ha-- great find Pro!

Of course she's silly and over the top and had plenty of work done and cakes on the makeup, but at the end of the day she seems to have a good heart and appears sincere and compassionate. If GC needed to replace her tomorrow (or next year), they couldn't do it.

Btw, does anybody else think the announcers (Tafoya, etc) on Big Break come across as really awkward when they cut to their onscreen announcing spots? Miss NY&G think is its beyond creepy. To me it almost seems more like a parody.

Happy New Years y'all!!

Long may you run!!!
The old "are they real or not?" debate lives on.

W/ out putting on my old F.B.I. t-shirt from the 80's and getting an up close look&see hard to say definitively.

With all her gym work she's obviously been doing since college, then how does ones bust size go up? This is opposite of what happens normally. I had a ex GF who got into fitness competitions and w/in a yr she burned off her once ample cleavage by hitting the gym 5-6 days/wk.

Just my $0.02 on b00bies...I've always been a fan of em.
12.29.2013 | Unregistered CommenterJohnnnycz
They have a good mix of personable ladies, and if you wanna see real, no doubt about it, then google up Lauren Thompson images, and see one beautiful woman show you the goods.
12.30.2013 | Unregistered Commenterdigsouth
As one of my good friends always says to me when I comment that so and so's boobs are fake: SO! How true.
12.30.2013 | Unregistered Commenterol Harv
I agree Harv!

Doesn't really matter til you touch em-- and even then it doesn't matter THAT much!
@all: With all the improvements in cosmetic surgery techniques, it's really hard to tell these days, they can hide the incision scars very well. The only way know for sure is the tried and true "feel em for yourself" test....or as I mentioned above...find an F.B.I. shirt from the 1980's for "official" cover.

@Digger: "Flattened out"...you're a car guy, is it even possible to completely flatten out a tire that's not punctured?


Anyways...b00bie admirers...lets try to keep this thread going for all of 2014 if possible. Lots of new talent on the horizon this year.
12.31.2013 | Unregistered Commenterjohnnnycz
Speaking from a female perspective.... you guys out bitch any woman out there!
Cut the girl some slack please. She is attractive and she does what she does very well. Good for her.
