Sydnee Michaels Responds to GD's Controversial Fitness Cover

Don't know if you've been following the controversy, but a lot of people are upset that when Golf Digest finally put another woman on its cover the magazine chose a pseudo-celebrity (Paulina Gretzky) instead of, you know, an actual professional golfer. I can see Golf Digest's side of things: The magazine is purchased overwhelmingly by men, so let's put a hot babe on the cover (and far be it for the proprietor of Golf Babes to scold some other publication for running pics of hot babes!) and maybe we'll sell more copies.

But there are plenty of hot babes who play golf on the LPGA Tour. And given that the issue in question is the fitness issue, they weren't even limited to photographing top players. An actual LPGA golfer hasn't appeared on a Golf Digest cover since 2008.

LPGA Tour member Sydnee Michaels made the point her own way, posting this on Twitter:

And what photo did Sydnee attach to her tweet? This one:

Well played.

LPGA Golfers Enjoy the Bahamas Beachside and Poolside

Social media gives us a glimpse into the lives of professional golfers the likes of which we could never have gotten a mere 10 years ago. One word tells you all you need to know: "selfie." And when LPGA players visit a tournament site such as, say the Bahamas, selfies sometimes involve bikinis and other swimsuits. The LPGA Tour plays this week at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic. They are staying at the Atlantis Resort, which has a bevy of pools and other water features for them to enjoy; and are also right on the beach. Make that "beaches," since the resort is surrounded by sand and ocean, too. Below are a few of the swimsuit selfies LPGA golfers have shared on their social media accounts this week. First, Danielle Kang: Here are two showing Hee Young Park (left) and her sister Ju Young Park. Ju Young is an LPGA rookie in 2015.

Charley Hull IG Photo Roundup

Charley Hull isn't just busy on the golf course these days, but also on Instagram where she frequently posts fun, fetching photos. Including bikini selfies. And the entire golf world says in unison, "Thanks, Charley!" The 25-year-old Charley, by the way, is having a solid 2021 LPGA season, although she's still seeking that victory. As this is written, Hull is No. 38 in the world rankings. Her best LPGA finish so far in 2021 is tied for eighth at the LPGA Drive On Championship in March, but she also has finishes of 14th, 15th and 21st. All the following photos are ones Charley posted on her Instagram account, @charley.hull .
