Sports strains mental health as much as it does to one’s physical health. In golf, when a ball doesn’t go to the place where the golfer intended it to go, the stress begins. And when it happens, the golfers usually seem furious and throw their clubs away. And that exactly is what Paige Spiranac did!

The former professional golfer turned social media influencer posted her outrageous act online, where she threw her driver 40 yards away.

The golfer turned social media sensation revealed that she is to buy the new TaylorMade Stealth Driver. Since Spiranac announced it through her Instagram stories, it is no longer available on her account. However, one can always go through here to check out her posts.

The new Stealth Driver is completely made of carbon wood instead of titanium. According to its website, the new 60x Carbon Twist Face is made in such a way that it helps in better energy transfer and faster ball speed.

Furthermore, the face is covered with polyurethane to help optimize total distance in all playing conditions. Its Asymmetric Inertia Generator helps the driver to increase its speed.

Notably, the high-profile players on the PGA Tour use the brand new driver. Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, and Collin Morikawa are some of those.

According to the TaylorMade officials, the company had used a robot to test it. They ensured that the driver has hit over 4 and a half million shots to check its durability. Hence, it was no surprise that the driver, which Spiranac threw and got hit by the golf cart, didn’t get sustain any damage.

Paige Spiranac revealed why she threw away her driver! 

“Any reason for throwing it 40 yards into the air? Or just product testing?” When one of her followers asked her this question, she replied to it in the most unexpected manner.
