Paige Spiranac congratulates Bryson DeChambeau on his US Open win but admits 'it's fun to give him s*** at times'

FORMER pro golfer and Instagram star Paige Spiranac has congratulated Bryson DeChambeau after he won the first Major of his career.

The 27-year-old – who has been critical of her American compatriot in the past – said he deserved to win the US Open after his last round heroics.


Taking to Twitter, Spiranac said: "It’s fun to give Bryson s*** at times but you have to give him so much credit for sticking to his guns despite all the hate and now he gets to call himself a US Open Champion.

"Well deserved win."

Speaking in July during the Memorial Tournament in Ohio, Spiranac blasted DeChambeau's behaviour.

The social media personality slammed the 27-year-old for arguing with a PGA official about an out-of-bounds decision.

She said: "The way he acted to that rules official was so uncalled for and I think it just shows where his head space is at right now, where he thinks that he is literally pioneering the way that golf is being played.

"And so he is so far and beyond everyone else that he can tell a rules official, who their job is to know the rules inside and out.

"And for Bryson to say, ‘I don’t believe you, I need a second ruling.’ Who do you think you are?”

Spiranac has seen her Instagram following grow exponentially since lockdown, as she now boasts over 2.8 million followers.

Did I match my outfit to my new putter? Absolutely. But it’s only because I get so excited when I get new equipment! I recently went through a putter fitting at @clubchampion where it’s “Putter Fitting Month,” and ended up with the ER5 @evnroll. It feels so solid off the face and has helped me make more putts from that 10-12ft range. You already know how I feel about getting fit for your clubs. And since putts account for 40% of your strokes, the putter is arguably the most important club in the bag! You’re just wasting money buying putter after putter off the shelf, not getting the results that you want, and it’s because you’re playing equipment that doesn’t fit YOU. For the entire month of September, Club Champion is offering a FREE putter fitting with the purchase of a new putter! Head to the link in my bio, and use code PAIGE2020 when you book! I also posted my entire putter fitting experience on YouTube if you want to learn more.

The former Cactus Tour star delighted her fans last month when she wore a skintight white dress while performing a flop shot.

Meanwhile she also wowed her supporters when she uploaded a clip of herself nailing a trick shot using her cleavage.

Earlier this year, Spiranac revealed how she has received death threats after criticising push-cart users on the golf course.

I believe getting fit for your clubs is the best investment you can make when it comes to improving your game. You’re spending so much money on buying the newest equipment, but it doesn’t really fit you. My go to place to get fit is @clubchampion. They treat everyone as important as their top tour players like Jordan Spieth. They have 74 locations and have 45,000+ hittable head and shaft combinations. So basically, you will find the best fit for YOU! For example, I only knew Mizuno for their irons, but the last time I was at Club Champion I was fit for the new @mizunogolfnorthamerica driver. I was surprised how much I loved the driver, and it was the driver that fit me best! Link in bio for more information and use code “PAIGE” at booking to get 50% off your fitting fee with an equipment purchase that’s equal or greater to the fee!
