While working at a golf tournament for Playboy in March 2012, model Liz Dickson agreed to let Los Angeles-area radio host Kevin Klein hit a tee shot from her - backside. The shot didn't quite go as planned, and now Dickson is taking Playboy (and Klein) to court.

According to the suit filed this week in California, Klein was attempting to hit a shot with the ball teed up between Dickson's "partially exposed" butt cheeks while she was lying on her stomach. Instead of sending the ball down the fairway, though, Klein missed it entirely and instead struck Dickson "on the buttocks, causing her injuries and damages."

As a result, Dickson - who according to a Facebook post was named the "Girl of Playboy Golf" winner for 2011 - is now suing for $500,000 plus punitive damages, having endured "pain, suffering, worrying and anxiety" following the trick shot gone awry.
