Paige Spiranac on GolfDigest cover upsets fans, players

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

The new cover of GolfDigest has fans and players in an uproar.

Paige Spiranac graces the cover in a sexy skin-tight matching top and bottom while posing with a golf club.

Best known for her suggestive and revealing snaps on social media, the Internet star never made it to the pros.

Her lack of golfing cred has many fans upset as to why Spiranac made it on the cover over the top female golfer in the world, 18-year-old Lydia Ko.

Golf Hall of Famer Juli Inkster said, "You look at what Lydia Ko’s doing, and why isn’t she on the cover?”

But there doesn't appear to be any beef between Ko and Spiranac.

Spiranac told FOX411, "I'm so honored to be on the cover of Golf Digest, especially to promote a story about so many amazing innovators who are changing the way we think about the sport. All I can do to reach my goal of one day playing alongside the absolutely incredible players already on the LPGA Tour is to keep working my hardest and to persevere."

She added, "Golf needs all kinds of ambassadors, both those who are already champions as well as those who are digging in day in and day out to get better - all of these stories combined will hopefully encourage more people to get into the game!"
