Gary Player is making a ton of noise with his recent nude photo shoot for ESPN’s ‘The Body’ Magazine issue released this month. Personally, I prefer the Carly Booth spread in the same issue, but what do I know? Anyway, golfers are no stranger to the risqué sports magazine release.

Here’s a rundown of all the golfers who have been featured over the years.

2009 – Christina Kim, Sandra Gal, Anna Grzebien

Professional golfers in the buff burst onto the scene in ESPN Magazine’s 2009 “The Body” issue with three of the LPGA Tour’s most outgoing personalities. Seated strategically on a golf cart, Kim, Gal and Grzebien were the talk of the practice green for male and female golfers alike for months.

2010 – Camilo Villegas

Goodness gracious. When sports fans saw this photo of Villegas doing his trademark ‘Spiderman’ pose on a putting green, everyone immediately became depressed about their own physique. I’m pretty sure Camilo is flexing muscles I didn’t even know existed.

2011 – Belen Mozo

While she might not be a household name at this stage in her career, Mozo certainly turned some heads with her treetop pose in 2011.

2012 – Suzann Pettersen

One of the LPGA’s consistently best players, Pettersen’s expose in 2012 showcased exactly how fit the Norwegian is under her Nike apparel.
