Therefore, fans believe Claire might give a tough fight to Paige, as previously she has had no competition. However, Claire Hogle is not a professional golfer, while Paige Spiranac was a pro golfer for a while. Spiranac competed in LET events, but sadly, she could never break through to the LPGA Tour. 

Hence, she retired from professional golf in December 2016 and turned her attention to the media. Paige created content consistently and soon became a social media sensation. Meanwhile, another advantage Paige had was that she was a professional golfer. Hence, she knew the mindset and a few other things about pros that non-pro golfers do not understand sometimes.

Therefore, Claire Hogle needs a lot more time to become the next Paige Spiranac. Additionally, her style of content is slightly different from that of Paige. Furthermore, she is still young and probably looks up to Paige as her inspiration. So what do you think? Can Claire Hogle become the new Paige Spiranac? Do let us know in the comments section below.
