Voiced By: David White

A bright and happy golfer, Sonny is very talented and sticks to a traditional play style.

  • Nice Hat: Sonny always has his fedora with him. He only removes when he scores a Bogey or lower, where he hangs it in shame, or an Eagle or higher, where he enthusiastically throws it in celebration.
