Why is Kate Upton on the Cover of Golf Digest?


 (Golf Digest)

Is Kate Upton getting into golf? Maybe not. But the editors of Golf Digest are probably hoping you'll think otherwise after glancing at their latest issue.

Upton posed with golf legend (and iced tea/lemonade innovator) Arnold Palmer for the cover of the publication's December issue, evoking an "American Gothic" vibe. In a minute long behind-the-scenes video for the magazine's cover shoot, which can be viewed below or at GolfDigest.com, Upton and Palmer pal around in front of the cameras and on the links.

This isn't their first meeting, however. The two reportedly know each other through her manager, whose father was a former golfing partner of Palmer's. USA Today also reported that they once met up for dinner at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge sometime after the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March, so they've been buds for a while.

Their upcoming Golf Digest meeting also spawned this silly video of Kate teaching Arnold how to putt, released back in September.

The December issue of Golf Digest is available in tablet edition today, and on newsstands November 5.
