Paige Spiranac is a blonde bombshell social media personality and semi-professional golfer who first came to prominence while playing college golf at the University of Arizona and San Diego State University.
Spiranac has sponsorship deals with PXG, 18Birdies, and Cybersmile, and has also been featured in various magazines such as the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition and Golf Digest.
Her 2018 appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition was something to be remembered, where she opened up about previously being “sexualized”:

Paige Spiranac still feels the pain from that night in Dubai. She was 22, fresh out of college and playing in The Dubai Ladies Masters, her first pro tournament. She was there on a sponsor’s exemption, meaning she was invited by the tournament’s organizers to bring awareness to the event. Though she had reservations about participating under those conditions, it was an opportunity too good to pass up. But she did not expect the criticism — both the amount received and the viciousness in which it was delivered. She hadn’t earned a legitimate spot in the tournament. Her presence was sexualizing women’s golf. What she hoped would be a positive first step in her career had become a nightmare. So there she was, the night before her first major tournament, bawled up on the floor of a hotel room, crying hysterically.
“It really affected me,” Paige says of the experience. “I was sitting in the bathroom just balling and was like ‘I don’t want to go through this pain, this feel of helplessness. Being alone. Scared. And I said I never wanted anyone to feel the way I felt in that moment. How scared I was. How helpless I felt in that I was bullied so bad to the point that I didn’t want to live anymore.’”
