LPGA Tour boss 'disappointed' with Golf Digest

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (AP) -- LPGA Tour Commissioner Mike Whan weighed in Friday on Golf Digest's provocative cover featuring Paulina Gretzky.

Whan released a statement at the Kraft Nabisco Championship, saying: "Obviously, we're disappointed and frustrated by the editorial direction (and timing) Golf Digest has chosen with the announcement of its most recent magazine cover."

The cover photo shows Gretzky in skintight capris and a bra.

Gretzky is former hockey star Wayne Gretzky's daughter and PGA Tour player Dustin Johnson's fiancee. Former LPGA Tour star Lorena Ochoa was the last female player to appear on the magazine's cover in October 1992. Golf Digest featured Golf Channel's Holly Sonders in May 2013 and model Kate Upton posed with Arnold Palmer for the December issue.
