The 84-year-old pro took the 21-year-old model out onto the links to give her some tips on a game. Palmer was impressed with Upton, whose athleticism made her a natural.

Plus, the two made an adorable pair for the goofy photos -- including an American Gothic-inspired cover -- that went along with the story.

"When we got together recently at my other home club, Latrobe Country Club, I could tell right away that she's going to be a nice player," Palmer said. "For Kate, creating a system is going to come easily because she's an athlete and a competitor.

"She'll benefit from the tips I gave her, but she'll find more on her own," he said. "Like me, Kate will have some spectacular failures, but she'll also have some exhilarating successes."

Flip through the photos and check out the behind-the-scenes video of Upton and Palmer's lesson and cover shoot.
