In her podcast last month, she even sang Fowler’s praise and said, “Golf is all about confidence, and guys usually have a couple good weeks where they’re just on. And that’s where Rickie is right now. You saw at the US Open. He looked like the Rickie Fowler that we know and love.” However, despite her evident love for the PGA Tour star, the witty social media influencer did not think twice before drawing the limelight on herself.

Taking to Twitter, she once again praised Fowler, but hilariously and subtly grabbed the spotlight onto herself as well. Rickie Fowler winning is so good for golf! she wrote, “And it wouldn’t be a Paige tweet if I didn’t make it about myself, so congrats to me for picking him this week.”

Fowler’s journey to victory at the Rocket Mortgage Classic was a testament to his resilience and unwavering focus. Despite a slightly slower pace during the latter part of the final round, Fowler showcased his mental fortitude by birdieing the final hole to force a playoff.

In the playoff, he hit a remarkable shot to secure a 12-foot birdie putt for the win. Reflecting on his triumph, Fowler shared, “It’s hard to put it all into words. Obviously, a lot of good stuff this year.” He also emphasized the importance of a balanced perspective. He added, “Winning is great, but there’s a lot more to life than that.”

And while the orange-clad golfer certainly stole the show at the event, Spiranac’s tweet that followed grabbed a lot of attention too!
