Back in December, social media superstar and aspiring LPGA pro Paige Spiranac hit a bit of a rough patch in her young career. She bombed at the Dubai Ladies Masters and subsequently announced a break from social media and golf — much to everyone’s horror.
Fortunately that hiatus only lasted like two weeks, and everything’s been back on the up and up since then. And it looks like things are really peaking now as Paige announced that she’ll be on the May cover of Golf Digest:

She shouted out her social media fam in her caption:
I’m so honored to say that I’ve landed on the May cover of @GolfDigest! The issue has an awesome article about “Futurists” and how people today are changing golf. I know you’ll love it! Follow @GolfDigest and click on the link in their bio for your chance to win a signed copy! I also know I wouldn’t be in this position today without my social media family. Thank you to all the other accounts who have featured me before and those who follow. I honestly can’t believe how this has all come about but I appreciate the support and love more than you will ever know so thank you so much for everything
We’re guessing the same people who hated Paulina Gretzky landing a cover in 2014 won’t be a fan of this move, but guess what, it’s probably going to sell crazy amounts of copies.
Golf Digest on what May’s issue is about:
It’s dedicated to golf’s futurists–the innovators and influencers who are pushing the boundaries of the game, from educational robotics to glow-in-the-dark agronomy. The eye-catching cover image, as modeled by @_paige.renee, is designed to convey this topic of futurism and innovation.
