Golfing great Greg Norman is in ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue, and the 63-years-old athlete appears nude, showing off his "super-fit" body USA Today's For the Win blog reported.

Norman and others tweeted pictures from his magazine photo shoot Thursday, showing Norman on the golf course like no one has ever seen him before – we think, USA Today noted.

According to ESPN, other athletes featured in this year's body issue, which is scheduled to be out on stands Monday, include New York Giants rookie Saquon Barkley, Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns, WWE's Charlotte Flair, Seattle Storm's Breanna Stewart and Sue Bird, Seattle Reign Megan Rapinoe, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig, Houston Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel, softball player Lauren Chamberlain, USWNT player Crystal Dunn, Los Angeles Galaxy star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon, Hall of Fame football player Jerry Rice, track star Tori Bowie, and cross-country gold medalist Jessie Diggins.

ESPN wrote that as part of its 10th anniversary celebration, ESPN The Magazine also has released a digital photo archive of every athlete who has been in the previous nine issues, including never-before-seen images.

In 2014 the magazine set off a social media buzz with photos of Major League baseball star Prince Fielder, who did not fit the stereotype slim-figured athletes that had graced the cover before, drawing both cheers and jeers.

"The body ideals set by fashion magazines via the models in their employ, set off with airbrushing and judiciously applied Photoshopping, come fully packaged with messages about wealth, class and gender," The Washington Post's Soraya Nadia McDonald wrote then.

"… ESPN's Body Issue is decidedly more democratic. Its photographs are a visual testament to unforgiving training regimens, sacrifice, passion and commitment that isn't always rewarded with multimillion-dollar contracts or endorsement deals. They illustrate the diversity of body types among those who call themselves athletes, from gymnasts who are tiny, explosive cannonballs of power to massively strong NFL offensive linemen. Not everyone need look like an Adonis to perform physical feats most of us would find impossible."
