Earlier this year, we learned that reigning Miss World Rolene Strauss is an enthusiastic golfer. Soon after that, we saw several Miss Universe contestants try their hand at the game at Doral – and in high heels.
And now, we complete our beauty queen trifecta – we learned that reigning Miss America Kira Kazantsev is not only an avid golfer, she's playing in this week's BMW Charity Pro-Am on the Web.com Tour.
Kazantsev, a 23-year-old from New York City who's a graduate of Hofstra University, is paired with lucky duck Kevin Tway. They teamed up for a 68 on Thursday and a 69 on Friday, which has them pretty deep in the field – but because of her presence, they were also one of the most popular groups on the course.
And as it turns out, Kazantsev is managing to squeeze in some golf even during her packed Miss America schedule. She also played a charity event in Dallas a couple weeks ago, and another one in California a week before that.
No word on how she scores, but she always looks like she's having fun out there. Take a look at these shots from the Miss America Instagram feed –and note that they like to use the hashtag #theresheswings. That is excellent:

Thanks for the good luck charm, little man! @bmwcharityproam #ThereSheIs #MissAmerica2015 #LoveMyJob
