The golfer explained how unreal she felt when she heard the news for the first time through the post. “To me, being sexy is about confidence and feeling comfortable in your own skin,” she wrote“I’ve always tried to stay true to myself though out my unconventional path, and now I’m so proud to be following so many amazing women who carried the title in years before me.”

According to Spiranac, she had already posted the news earlier. However, since she broke Instagram with the traffic she received, the platform deleted that post.
