Video: Kate Upton and Arnold Palmer play golf


Isn't this supposed to be the other way around?

In a shoot for a feature in Golf Digest, supermodel Kate Upton and all-time great golfer Arnold Palmer got together for a day of golf.

For this video, Palmer is seen practicing putting, lipping out and missing several putts before Kate Upton, Golf Teacher, comes in and instructs the King. She tells him not to break his wrist and for Palmer to practice more. He sinks the next one, then misses and takes a deep breath.

Perhaps the best part of the video is the role reversal, not only of Upton teaching Palmer, but of a woman stepping in behind a man to help him swing. So often, creepy guys take girls to the driving range on golf dates for the very purpose of standing behind them to "help them swing." Well played, Kate Upton.
