After posing for the 2018 SI Swimsuit Issue in Aruba, media personality and golf instructor Paige Spiranac is officially returning to the fold with the publication of the 60th anniversary magazine, out in May.

The 30-year-old just took part in a photo shoot with fellow brand legends at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., and Spiranac teased on Instagram that the photos will definitely be worth the wait.

“Just admiring all the beautiful @si_swimsuit women,” she wrote atop an Instagram story on Friday, March 8. In the pic, Spiranac stood before a photo wall composed of bright and beautiful images from SI Swimsuit Issues past. “I was apart of the Legends shoot,” she continued. “Honored is an understatement. Excited for you to see the pictures!”

The former Division I golfer also included a few glamorous video clips from her time on location, all while clad in a couture gown and full hair and makeup. She offered a sneak peek of the plunging dress in one and fluffed her blonde locks and provided a close-up in another.

While reflecting upon her SI Swimsuit debut, Spiranac called the opportunity to pose in front of James Macari’s lens a “life-changing” moment.

“It was the most confident and powerful and empowered that I have ever felt, and I carry that now,” Spiranac told us last January. “Whatever I do, that's a big part of me and a badge that I'll hold forever, being a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model.”
