Her educational videos on YouTube are a valuable source for all young golfers to get the proper guidance about the sport. However, her podcast, ‘Playing a Round With Paige Renee’ focuses primarily on off-topic discussions. The former golfer shares her personal and professional experience there too. 

Spiranac has a big heart, and she believes in equality. The former pro has been very vocal about women’s rights in sports. However, at the same time, she acknowledges the suffering of men, too. Her comments on sexual assault will open your eyes to the same.

Who was at fault, according to Paige Spiranac?

In 2017, a series of high-profile sexual assault cases came into the limelight of the media. However, the sensitive case caught the attention of the golf beauty, and she wanted to make a few corrections. According to her, people often forget women’s role in sexual assault.

The women’s community does not treat each other with respect. Therefore, men treat women like trash too. Spiranac said, “As women, we need to look at ourselves more and make sure we’re not saying just men do this. A lot of it is because we treat each other like crap.”

In 2016, Golf Digest featured the internet queen on the cover. A famous ESPN personality, Sarah Spain, took a jab at Spiranac. According to her, the former golfer was only on the magazine cover because of her online popularity and suggestive dressing. “At that point, you’re blaming me for how I look. I could be walking around naked, but it doesn’t mean I deserve to be sexually assaulted,” said the former pro golfer.

Spain extinguished the fact that Spiranac deserved to be on the cover. However, Spiranac took a stand for herself. The 2018 Sports Illustrated model established her authority. She proved that she has the freedom to wear anything she wants. It doesn’t have to be the reason for any sexual assault. She also appealed that women need to treat other women more nicely than only one can expect from men.
