Former professional golfer and Instagram favorite, Paige Spiranac sets the greens on fire with her gorgeous plaid dress as the 2021 US Open is set to begin in just two days. 

The professional-golfer-turned-social-media-influencer showed off her US Open look in a recent Instagram post while in San Diego Tuesday, as she prepares for the legendary tourney to begin.  

“Excited to be in SD for the @usopengolf!” Spiranac said in the June 15 Insta post. 

In the post, Spiranac shared a photo of herself clad in a fitted plaid dress with part of the historic Torrey Pines course behind her. 

“I’ll be taking over the @pointsbetusa account on Thursday while I’m at the tournament so make sure to follow there to see all my posts! Who do you think will win this week!” her post continued. 

Paige Spiranac Finds Her Footing on Instagram

Spiranac was a top golfer at the University of Arizona and at San Diego State University. She found success in multiple regional championships during her time playing college golf. 

By 2015, Spiranac found her way onto the professional golf circuit. In 2016, Spiranac fell short of qualifying for the LPGA, and later retired from the sport altogether. 

While Spiranac’s goals of making it on the professional golf circuit may not have come true, the famous blonde golfer and social influencer has since become a social media hit. Initially, Spiranac found a niche sharing videos of her trick-shot. These videos gained a small following, and as their popularity grew, so did Paige Spiranac’s numbers. Currently, Spiranac’s Insta, _paige.renee, has over 3 million followers. 

Torrey Pines Offers Picturesque Views During US Open

Right now, golfers from all over the world are arriving in San Diego to prepare for the 2021 US Open which set to begin Thursday, June 17 on the Torrey Pines South Course. 

The 36-hole Torrey Pines golf course sits right on the San Diego coast. Pieces of the breathtaking course sit on top of cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The South Course is nearly 8,000 yeards long and boasts a par at 72.

This will be the second time that Torrey Pines has hosted the US Open since the course was developed in the late 1950s. The first US Open at Torrey Pines was held in 2008 when Tiger Woods took home yet another championship during a sudden-death playoff with Rocco Mediate.
