The latest issue of Golf Digest, a magazine that rarely puts women on the cover, features non-athlete Paulina Gretzky as its cover and female golfers aren’t too happy about it.  Gretzky isn’t a golfer- rather, she’s engaged to one (Dustin Johnson).  And of course, she’s the daughter of another famous athlete- hockey star Wayne Gretzky.  The last time an actual female golfer was featured on the cover of the mag was Lorena Ochoa in 2008.  More recently, Golf Digest put model Kate Upton and Golf Channel anchor Holly Sonders on the cover.  Female golfers are frustrated, but not particularly surprised.  Golf is a male-dominated sport, and despite the fact that female players are gaining ground, Golf Digest seems to be prioritizing with selling magazines rather than respecting all athletes equally.   See the Golf Gyrl picture HERE then click on it to make it larger and IT will become larger (double entendre TMI) lol
