Holly Sonders is one of the most admired athletes who have made the most from their careers. The latter grew up in a family that supported her goal and passion for golf. Her mother had a great influence on her career as she was also a professional golf player. The latter, however, had to switch from her career as a professional golf player to becoming a journalist, as she suffered from an injury. That, however, did not mark the end of the road for her as a golf player, as she became a news broadcaster for the sport.
Holly Sonders is the perfect definition of the proverb,' the apple doesn't fall from the tree.' This is so because the latter showed her interest in playing golf at the tender age of six after being brought up by her mother, who was a professional golf player. She groomed her career at such a young age, and by the time she was completing her high school, she had earned a couple of awards as a golf player. You might want to know more about her.

Holly Sonders spouse
The latter is currently dating Kliff Kingsbury. Kliff is the leading coach of Arizona Cardinals. She, however, was married to Erick Kuselias, who is a radio and TV host. The two are alleged to have dated for some time before they got married. They, later on, divorced even though the reasons behind the divorce are not known.
News of their engagement went up in 2012. The news caught everyone by surprise as there were no speculations that they had been dating. During this period, Holly shared a photo of her fiance on her Twitter account and seemed to have been living her best life. She was also seen in public places with her husband after they had gotten married, and they seemed to have been serving the internet with relationship goals until when the relationship hit rock bottom.
In 2016, the two love birds parted ways. The divorce was also kept low-key, just as they had done to their dating life. Holly Sonders, however, came out to admit that they were no longer together. In a Twitter post, she stated:
I filed for divorce over a year ago…we have not been together in a very long time. Thanks.
After the breakup, she came out to state that she needed some time to be alone and patch up a couple of things.
Dating Coach Kliff Kingsbury

The desert just got a whole lot hotter. Congratulations @KliffKingsbury, so proud of you,
As though that was not enough, the message was accompanied by love emojis. That got the internet questioning whether something was brewing between the two. One of the followers was bold enough and retweeted:
Someone has a crush.
Her response to the comment confirmed the speculations as she retweeted saying that she has always had a crush on Kliff and that they were beyond just having a crush.
