Guess Who's Replacing Holly Sonders?

Sara BrownWell, perhaps replace isn't exactly the right word... but Sara Brown has definitely landed a gig at Golf Channel.

The word came out during Thursday's broadcast of the Big Break Invitational tournament. According to the broadcast, Sara is going to take over sidekick duties with Martin Hall on School of Golf for the rest of the year. (I'm guessing that Karen Stupples, who's currently holding that spot down, is going to be traveling to LPGA events for the next couple of months. Most of them will be in Asia.)

It was also mentioned that Sara has already done an episode of Playing Lessons (although I forget which player it was). That show may be getting a rotating cast, as both Lisa Cornwell and Paige Mackenzie have done stints on the show so far.

Just for the record, Sara will at least go into this with some street cred. Big Break Invitational is using an unusual format -- two days of Stableford, one day of match play, and the final day (today) is stroke play. They started with 40 players -- 20 men, 20 women -- and cut each group to 12 players after the Stableford, then cut to 6 men and 6 women with the match play, and will let the remaining 12 players compete all together for a $300k total purse / $100k first prize. Not only did Sara make it through the Stableford sessions, she played some clutch shots down the stretch to take out Kristy McPherson 2up.

Several of the 2015 Tour rookies -- Tony Finau, Jackie Stoelting, Mallory Blackwelder, and Sadena Parks among them -- along with Tommy Gainey and Gerina Pillar made the final round. It should be fun watch today. It's supposed to come on at 3pm ET.

But you can count on seeing Sara Brown more than that in the coming months. They've already posted her bio at!
