Kate Upton's no stranger to nudity. In fact, she's so aware of the way her image is perceived that she believes she's indebted to Carine Roitfeld for being the first editor to shoot her in something other than a bikini. And, in some weird way, we're indebted, too. Upton's a fantastic model and her Golf Digest cover is a testament to that.
With three Sports Illustrated covers under her (invisible) belt, the world is pretty familiar with Upton — intimately familiar. So, when we first caught wind of her Golf Digest role, we threw a little side eye. Kate Upton, Arnold Palmer, and the very buttoned-up sport? Was she going to be put in a skimpy, golf ball-patterned one-piece laying on the green with a putter? Was she going to ride on top of a cart? Sexy caddy?
Luckily, none of that happened. Instead, Upton assumes the role of Palmer's pupil. And, based on the video below, she looks like she learned a thing or two. While no photos of the extended spread have surfaced, the cover is enough to pique our interest. Upton looks gorgeous in the orange polo-and-skirt combination. Even if she's never picked up a club before this, she certainly looks like she has.
