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 Kos doing, and why isnt she on the cover?

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

Spiranac told FOX4 11, “I’m so honored to be on the cover of Golf Digest, especially to promote a tale about so many amazing innovators who are changing the style 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 champs as well as those who are digging in day in and day out to get better – all of these stories blended will hopefully promote more people to get into the game! “
