The newest addition to the hotly-anticipated Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue isn’t a supermodel, but she’s definitely a hole-in-one.

Golfer Paige Spiranac has been embroiled in a battle with conservative fans of the sport for showing too much cleavage on the course. Being featured in SI’s annual bikini homage probably won’t make those losers any happier, and she doesn’t give a damn.

“I never want to be that person who has to change their lifestyle or change who they are to appease other people,” she says in the above video.

Her racy outfits have attracted well over one million followers, as well as cyberbullies, slut-shamers and other “hateful people” who have gone so far as to send her death threats. 

After nearly being tormented to wit’s end, she “took back her sexuality” as SI Swim’s newest star. The beauty echoed a similar sentiment in a recent Esquire interview.

“I didn’t even think twice… I embrace who I am, and I embrace the fact that I feel empowered feeling sexy,” she said. 

Spiranac has even found a way to make something positive out of the awful experiences she endured online as an ambassador for The Cybersmile Foundation, an anti-bullying organization.
