Golf star Paige Spiranac reveals she is told to play from ‘ladies tees’ so she ‘doesn’t keep the men up’


INTERNET star Paige Spiranac says she is told to play from the "ladies tee" so she "doesn't keep the men up" - despite being an ex-pro golfer.

The American, famed on social media for trick shots and glamorous photos, took a swing at the treatment she sometimes still receives on courses.

With 2.9million Instagram followers, the 27-year-old has previously blamed golf's middle-aged male establishment for harassment she has suffered, including blackmail and death threats.

Now Spiranac has pitched in again on a more practical problem.

Next to a smiling photo of herself, golf club in hand, she posted: "When the starter insists that I play from the “ladies tees” so I don’t keep the men up. LOL no😬 What tees do you normally play from?"

She posted: "Greg 'the shark' Norman. More like hammerhead shark."

But she responded: "I get this comment all the time. I want to set the record straight. I have never and will never complain about that.

"Just don't call me a slut or a whore solely based on the tops I like to wear. It's not that hard to understand."

And in a Twitter reply, she said: "So Greg Norman posts a shirtless picture with his d*** print very visible. He is praised for having a hog.

Spiranac, who married ex-baseball player Steven Tinoco two years ago, has also criticised dress rules, calling golf "elitist... stuffy.. exclusive".

Paige Spiranac calls Charles Barkley’s new golf swing ‘most surprising’ turn of 2020 and NBA star’s form now ‘looks good’
