Sonders paired with Daly, Parnevik in Round 1


Golf Channel personality Holly Sonders is teeing it up this week at the Humana Challenge.

Sonders, a 7 handicap, will play alongside John Daly and Jesper Parnevik during their opening round at La Quinta, one of the three courses used in the event rotation. They are scheduled to tee off at 12:30 p.m. ET Thursday.

Her Round 2 tee time is not yet available on the PGA Tour website.

On Saturday, Sonders will be one of the marquee groups, playing alongside Brandt Snedeker and Rickie Fowler on the Palmer Course. Their Round 3 tee time is 1:20 p.m. ET.

Amateurs are guaranteed to play at least three rounds. For the first time in tournament history, the three amateurs with the lowest net score and the three amateurs with the lowest gross score after three rounds also will tee it up on Sunday. They will each play with two pros, starting off the 10th tee, and play individual stroke play from the amateur tees.

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story said that Sonders would play with Jamie Lovemark and Kevin Tway in Round 1, then Bo Van Pelt and Nicolas Colsaerts in Round 2. The PGA Tour has since changed her groupings.
