Model Paulina Gretzky isn’t a pro golfer but she’s made it onto the cover of the latest issue of Golf Digest.

The controversial move has left some women in the sport frustrated as the magazine defends its position.

Golf Digest, which bills itself as “the authority on how to play, what to play and where to play,” has explained that as the fiancée of PGA Tour pro Dustin Johnson, Gretzky is a major celebrity in the golf world and thereby qualifies the recognition of a cover story.

“Sports figures, celebrities and models have appeared on Golf Digest covers since the magazine’s beginning,” the publication’s editor in chief, Jerry Tarde, says in a statement. “Paulina ranks at the high end of the golf celebrity scene today, and she has a compelling story to tell. She also might get some new people interested in the game.”
