On Friday, ex-golf pro turned social media personality Paige Spiranac posted a stunning set of photos while asking her followers when they preferred to tee off on the golf course.
The Instagram star may be well-known for her looks, but she’s no slouch on the greens. Spiranac played college golf at both the University of Arizona and San Diego State University. During her college years she earned All-Mountain West Conference honors two years in a row. In addition, she led SDSU to their first Mountain West Conference Championship in 2015.
Following her university days, Paige Spiranac turned professional as she attempted to earn her way onto the LPGA Tour. Yet after she failed to qualify to play on the circuit, she retired from pro golf in December 2016. These days, Spiranac has combined her love for golf with her social media fame. The influencer may share some rather revealing pictures, but they’re almost always intertwined with her favorite sport.
Yesterday, Spiranac donned a two-piece white golf outfit, including a skirt and tank top. She also is holding a putter as she asked her more than three million Instagram followers about their favorite time of day to begin a round of golf. Evidently Spiranac used to love early morning tee times. Yet that’s changed over the years she said.
“Early morning rounds of golf or late afternoon?” Paige Spiranac asked her followers. “When I was playing competitively I loved early tee times but now nothing is better than 9 holes while the sun is setting.”
Paige Spiranac Says She Was Recently Harassed While Playing Golf Recently
While Paige Spiranac gets plenty of attention on and off the golf course, unfortunately it’s not always the welcomed kind of attention. Recently, the former professional golfer revealed some of the awful things that were screamed at her during a practice round a couple weeks ago. While minding her own business and focusing on her golf game, a man yelled out to her as he passed by.
Spiranac obviously took it in stride. She joked about fans who scream “mashed potatoes!” after a golfer tees off. Yet she expanded on why the man’s abhorrent behavior shouldn’t be tolerated.
“Men will force themselves sexually on women without consent,” Spiranac replied to a user in the comments. “This is tame compared to all the harassment and assault women face all the time. Unfortunately, more women have stories like this and worse.”
Sadly this is far from the first time she’s had to deal with close-minded individuals in the golf community. Spiranac once opened up on her podcast about a charity that wouldn’t accept her generous offer.
“I wanted to help this charity out, and I wanted to give them free golf clubs,” Spiranac said on her Playing A Round podcast. “The guy wrote back and said, ‘We would love to but, because of the way our board members view you, you can’t help out.’ I want to give back to these kids who don’t have anything, because I grew up not having anything, and I can’t even f–ing do that because of my cleavage. We bond over having a common interest and we all love the same thing … I don’t understand why it matters if you’re wearing a polo (shirt) and I’m not wearing a polo.”
