Former professional golfer Paige Spiranac has proved her sense of humour is just as sharp as her looks by issuing a brilliant comeback to an online troll who said nobody in the sport cared about her views.
Fresh from being named the sexiest woman in the world on Maxim magazine’s famous Hot 100 list, the 29-year-old wasn’t having any of it when a golf fan tweeted, ‘No One in the Golf World Cares About Paige Spiranac’s Views! A Boob Job Does Not Make You a Wise Sage!’
On Thursday she hit back with: ‘They’re real and they’re spectacular’ – quoting one of the most famous lines from the hit TV comedy Seinfeld.
Spiranac shot down a cruel troll with a brilliant comeback that will be familiar to any fan of the legendary TV comedy Seinfeld
‘They’re real and they’re spectacular,’ she said after being accused of having a boob job – using the exact line spoken by Teri Hatcher’s character (pictured) in a fan favourite episode
It comes from an episode in which Jerry Seinfeld’s friend Elaine believes his new girlfriend – played by Teri Hatcher – has breast implants. She leaves Jerry and hits him with the quote on the way out the door.
Spiranac has had a bit of practice with snappy comebacks lately after she was slammed on Twitter when news of her win in the pages of Maxim broke.
‘@PaigeSpiranac has a horse head. Honestly. Dude has a long face,’ the commenter wrote.
The golfer responded by posting a picture from her Maxim shoot with a horse’s head Photoshopped in place of her own and the caption ‘Seabiscuit Spiranac’, referring to the famous American racehorse.
The American – who had her first win as a professional in 2016 and missed out when she attempted to qualify for the LPGA tour in August of that year – has amassed an incredible following online, where her golf tips and glamorous posts have attracted more than three million Instagram followers.
She recently hit out at Aussie golf legend Greg Norman’s controversial LIV breakaway competition, which is backed by mountains of Saudi Arabian cash.
The 29-year-old has also lashed out at the rebel LIV golf competition, which has been slammed from pillar to post for using mountains of Saudi Arabian money to disrupt the game
The former golf professional said she could ‘make millions and millions’ if she signed up with the rebel competition, but would feel immoral if she did
‘I wouldn’t do it,’ she told the Bunkered podcast this week.
‘A lot of people are like, bulls**t, you would do it for a certain amount of money, but I think about things and my career and, like, I wouldn’t sign up for OnlyFans because, morally, it just doesn’t align with what I’m doing.
‘I could sign up today and probably make millions and millions of dollars but for me, it’s not about money.
‘You have to do things for a bigger reason. You have to be passionate about it and you have to love what you do. You can’t just do things for money.’
