Paige Spiranac Says Dates Would Use Her Just For Golf Lessons

Golf and Instagram star Paige Spiranac has claimed that men used to only date her to get free golf lessons and try to get equipment too.

The former professional golfer hasn't played on the tour since 2016 but her videos and pictures on social media have led to her achieving fame on Instagram.

Her account has more than 2.4 million followers and she has over 120,000 subscribers on YouTube and her golf skills are so impressive that people used her for dates just to get free lessons.

"I would always open up a conversation with, 'Hey I play golf' and anything along those lines and I thought that it would work," she told her podcast Playing-A'Round.

"Unfortunately, guys were using me for golf lessons, golf equipment and golf balls.

"(They'd say) 'So Paige, let's go out on a golf date. I'll take you to this driving range and we can just hit golf balls' and I'd be like, 'Yeah, that sounds awesome'. It would turn into an hour lesson of me just helping the guy become a better golfer.

"That happened all the time, since I was desperate and I wanted guys to like me."


"There was this other guy who did the same thing but he wanted golf lessons, and he would text me like 24/7, he was really cute and flirty with me.

"But the only time we would go on 'dates' - and I put that in air quotes - is because they were lessons, and so I would sit there and give him lessons, and he didn't tell me he had a girlfriend for six months!

"Six months and all of these lessons and nothing happened. He was like, 'I just want to take it slow, can you help me with my takeaway?'

"It happened all the time and I never learnt my lesson because I thought, 'This is my way in, guys think I'm cool because I play golf'. Then it just turned into me giving them golf balls and getting them on courses for free.

"They were all in other relationships!"

The 27-year-old, who managed one professional tour win during who two years playing professionally, is now engaged so no one will be using for her golf skills again.
