Arnold Palmer, who ranks as one of the greatest golf players of all times, is having dinner with model Kate Upton.
Kate Upton on the cover of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue
The 83-year-old former professional golfer seems quite smitten with the 20-year-old beauty, saying in an interview with Golf.com, "Did you see this?" holding up the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue with Upton on the cover.
"She's coming here. Did you know that?" referring to his Bay Hill Club & Lodge.
He then glanced again at the cover, which features Upton in Antarctica clad in only a polar jacket and bikini bottoms, before placing papers over the racy photo.
"I better cover this up," he said.
Upton’s manager, Lisa Benson, arranged the 'date,' as her father used to play golf with Palmer and Upton’s parents are huge fans of the Hall of Famer.
Based on those connections, Upton decided to visit Palmer in Florida. In addition to their dinner date, she plans to see the work he is doing with hospitals, as he has a medical center foundation in addition to a hospital in the sunshine state.
This is not the only “date” Upton has planned. The "Sports Illustrated" swimsuit model may also go on a date with Jake Davidson, a Los Angeles high school student. Davidson made a two-minute YouTube video asking the beauty to be his prom date.
“You had me at hello. You're the ying to my yang, I'm Jewish, 5'9 on a really good day - and I can't dance at all,” he tells her in the humorous video that has over 100,000 views. “You're Christian, 5'10, and that Cat Daddy video should have won an Oscar for best short film. You could say this is destiny.”
Upton replied on Twitter to Davidson’s request, even telling him he can call her “Katie,” and that she will join him if her schedule allows.
