Here's that Kim Kardashian golf angle you've been looking for

By now you may have heard of Kim Kardashian and Paper Magazine's efforts to "Break the Internet," all based on a series of revealing -- and disturbingly shiny -- photos of the reality star that surfaced this week.

What does this have to do with golf? Actually, something!

At Golf Digest, one of our favorite photographers to work with is the talented and slightly unbalanced Cy Cyr, who, among other projects, we collaborated with on the popular Most Annoying Golf Partners series. 

When Golf Digest made national headlines last spring for its controversial Paulina Gretzky cover, Cyr constructed a reimagining of the cover featuring he and several of his Orlando-area friends as the "Gretzky Boys." That rendition got nearly as much attention as the real cover, even getting Cy a mention on the "Today Show".

So now comes the Kardashian cover, and what does Cy do?

You guessed it.

The BOYS are back! Full version at cycyr.com! @craigkot @david_byrne87 @sammyq1111 @caseybourque @shapiroheroes @rogervansluis #kardashian #breaktheinternet @khloekardashian @kimkardashian @kendalljenner @kourtneykardash

For the record we're giving you the PG version here. If you want the full Monty, well, you've been warned.

If you must know, that's Cyr next to Kim in the top row. And there's another golf connection! One spot over from Cy is David Byrnes, a professional golfer who was the winner of Golf Channel's Big Break: Indian Wells. As you know, the Big Break is a revealing test of aspiring golfers looking to ascend to the next level. At least we used to think of it as revealing. This sort of takes it to a new level.
