Internet traffic research firm comScore reported Tuesday a small spike in the number of Kate Upton slideshows created on the Web in light of the model sharing a picture of her golf lesson with legend Arnold Palmer.
"It looks like a bunch of golf sites decided to create Kate Upton slideshows," said spokesman Steve Alston.

Upton and Palmer got together for a photo shoot that will land in Golf Digest magazine, prompting several golf websites to run a blog item largely centered around a tweet the model sent that had a picture with the 83-year-old golfer...and a few words were added so the writers' managing editors would allow them to hit 'Publish.'
It's a deviation from the sexy slideshows golf sites post every now and then as evergreen content, hoping to snatch up pageviews from folks searching for Paula Creamer or Natalie Gulbis pictures, or even that picture of Cristie Kerr kissing that phallic-looking trophy from years ago.
Alston added there are about 5,000 slideshows of the buxom blonde published online on any given day, personally lamenting how they all seem to be pulled from the same set of about 25 photos.
"Some guys at least throw us a bone with a GIF of Kate doing the Dougie or some other dance move, but it's usually the same old stuff," Alston said. "I've just bookmarked a couple for quick reference."
