Golf Digest is getting its fair share of eye candy with Golf Channel host Holly Sonders as its May cover girl.

Sonders, 26, who has been recognized by Golf Digest as “one of golf's most recognizable television personalities,” will appear in the magazine’s annual “Get Fit” issue.

“Who better to be on the cover of our May ‘Get Fit’ issue than Golf Channel's super-fit Holly Sonders?” the magazine wrote on its Facebook page on Monday.

The magazine’s website has a slideshow of 12 photos of Sonders for the issue ahead of its release on newsstands this Tuesday. The issue of Golf Digest will feature 35 pages of tips on how to get into your best golfing shape. Professional golfers Rickie Fowler, Jason Dufner and actor Mark Wahlberg who plays in charity events will also offer tips.

“I was told on a Sunday in February that I'd been chosen to be featured on the cover of the May Golf Digest, which is an incredible honor,” she wrote in a blog for the Golf Channel. “I figured I had weeks to hit the gym before the shoot. Nope. Three days later I was in New York.”

Sonders got her big break as The Golf Channel’s “Morning Drive” host since January 2011 and guest hosting “School of Golf.” The brunette host also addressed controversial claims that she was objectified on the network when The Golf Channel decided to place her on a stool during broadcasts – wearing short skirts and heels – while the rest of the hosts sat behind a desk. However, Sonders said the decision was very misunderstood.

“Some people would comment, ‘You’re objectifying her.’ There was just no other place to put me, honestly,” she wrote. “The cameras were in the wall. I dress the way I dress because style is very important to me. I love being a girl. You can be a pit-bull competitor. You can want to kick people’s asses in every sport, but you can still be feminine and still be sexy.

But long before her days on The Golf Channel, Sonders, whose real name is Holly Niederkohr, got her start as a college golfer at Michigan State where she graduated from in 2009. Before her famous gig at The Golf Channel, Sonders worked for the Big Ten network and KATV in Little Rock, Ark., Yahoo Sports reported.

And of course, the brunette beauty still golfs.

"I play from the reds now, but if I would tee it up from like 6,400 to 6,500 yards, I'd be about a 3- or 4-handicap," she told Golf Digest.

Next up, Sonders will be the host of Playing “Lessons With the Pros” which debuts in April.
