Paige Spiranac clears up her feelings about Phil Mickelson

Paige Spiranac is one of the most recognizable faces in the world of golf, and fans love to keep up with her every move. One thing about the social media star that has always garnered great attention from fans is her public feud with Phil Mickelson. Last year, Spiranac even revealed that Mickelson had blocked her on Twitter and Instagram! Since then, the former pro-golfer has often aimed sly jibes at the 6-time major winner.

However, the 30-year-old’s opinion of him seems to be slowly but steadily changing. In fact, after Mickelson’s T2 finish at the Masters, Spiranac tweeted that it was “fun” to watch him play. Now, over a month later, the influencer has revealed her feelings about the LIV golfer once again.

He is getting his mojo back. He’s becoming the Phil of old [times] and he’s just, he’s loving life right now.” While the PGA Championship isn’t Spiranac’s favorite major to watch, she took a lot back from the tournament and even recently revealed her new favorite golfer to the world!
