Hannah Davis becomes the latest Sports Illustrated swimsuit model to take up golf

A couple weeks ago, we were disappointed when a golfer didn't grace the cover of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue. After all, Nina Agdal had been on the front of the magazine the year before and Kate Upton, who got lessons with Arnold Palmer and appeared on the December 2013 cover of Golf Digest, had the honors the two years prior.

But now, there's nothing for us to gripe about. Instead, we're beaming with pride over how prevalent golf has become (This year's edition also featured former Georgetown golfer Kelly Rohrbach) in the lives of the most beautiful bikini-clad women in the world.

On Wednesday, this year's cover girl, Hannah Davis, officially took up the game, which makes it four years in a row(!) that a golfer has appeared on the cover. Check out the video Davis Instagrammed of her raw, but promising swing:

Davis displays plenty of power and she gets good height on the ball, but her balance could use a little work. With posture like this, though, we're betting she figures it out:
