Pic: Topless mag cover by top female golfer is causing a stir

One of the world’s best female golfers has made the cover of one of the sport’s top magazines but the style of picture has led to controversy.

The latest issue of Golf Digest has put one of the world's best female golfers on its latest cover but the decision to use a topless picture has caused some controversy in the US.

Lexi Thompson is ranked ninth in the world and at just 20, she already has a Major under her belt, the  2014 Kraft Nabisco Championship. The magazine decided to put her on the cover of their 'Fitness and Power' issue, with the headline 'Lexi, and the women who out drive you'.

And to illustrate this they used a topless shot of the golfer.

Many have criticised the decision, saying they wouldn't do that to one of the best male golfers in the world but they did feature this ridiculous shot of Rory McIlroy on their last cover.

And Thompson herself was delighted with the cover so we’ll leave the last word with her.

I landed on the May cover of @GolfDigest ! So pumped to represent fitness & power #GirlPower : http://t.co/ucXw4JTnSm pic.twitter.com/u4ys8WLLyv
