Recently, the 29-year-old posted a screenshot of one of the fake profiles under her name. She captioned it with a hilarious comment with just five words.
As of now, the 29-year-old is the most followed golfer on Instagram. She has 3.3 million followers on Instagram, whereas the 15-time major winning champion Tiger Woods has just 2.9 million. Furthermore, Paige Renee Spiranac is also active on other social media platforms. She has 1.3 million TikTok followers and more than 500k followers on Twitter.
Spiranac quit professional golfing in 2016. Although she has played on the Ladies European Tour, she has never played on the LPGA Tour. The golfer has played on the Cactus Tour, where she won her first and only professional win.
Spiranac used to be a professional golfer. However, she quit the sport as she struggled with mental health issues. “For me, it was never physical ability,” she described why she retired at an early age. “It was always mental.”
Although Spiranac has retired, she hasn’t stopped playing golf. She still enjoys the sport and plays in several Pro-Am events. According to her podcast episode ‘What’s a Niblicks?’ the golfer took part in a Pro-Am event in Atlantic City.
As a professional golfer, Spiranac couldn’t find success. However, she gained popularity soon after becoming a full-time social media influencer. Although her imposters give her trouble online, she overcomes it with humorous yet witty comments.
