Maxim magazine elected Paige Spiranac the sexiest woman of the year 2022. This American golfer made a name for herself via Instagram, but never managed to break into the professional ranks.
“I broke Instagram. » Instagram golf star Paige Spiranac has been voted Sexiest Woman of the Year by Maxim magazine. A distinction that the 29-year-old young woman welcomed with humility.
“I’m so honored to be named the sexiest woman alive by Maxim This year! When I heard the news, I kept asking them “are you sure? “because I was truly in disbelief”she explains on social networks.
“For me, being sexy is about having confidence and feeling good about yourself. I’ve always tried to stay true to myself throughout my unconventional journey and now I’m so proud to follow so many incredible women who carried the title years before me,” she added.
A difficult foray into the pros
If she acquired her notoriety by admiring her swing on Instagram, Paige Spiranac really tried a career in golf. After winning several junior tournaments, she obtained a scholarship to play golf with the University of Arizona. She then moved to San Diego State, and participated in the Aztecs’ first victory in the Mountain West Conference.
In 2016, after winning a small tournament in Arizona, she tried her luck as a professional by playing a few invitational Ladies PGA Tour tournaments. It turned out badly for her, as she finished above 100th place each time. And she suffered strong criticism on social networks, where her legitimacy was questioned.
“I share my story, and I don’t have a problem showing my emotions when I talk about it, because people don’t realize how difficult it was for me, she had explained, in tears, during a press conference. Cyberbullying is a huge problem, and nobody talks about it. It’s no longer funny. It’s not “cool” to make fun of others. »
Since then, she continues to regularly post videos where they play golf, and also deliver her predictions on the main tournaments, like right now with the US Open.
