Golfer and influencer Paige Spiranac recently announced a new subscription site, OnlyPaigewhere fans will be able to see her exclusive content.
Apart from the usual photos and videos, Spiranac will be sharing some golf tips on her new website.
However, there was one person who had something to say about Paige Spiranac’s new venture.
“No disrespect, but if anybody ever needs golf instruction, then they should consult their local professional! Getting golf instruction off YouTube is like going to trying to get advice about your sore foot from someone at the pub.” said the fan named Iain Ross.
Spiranac took notice of the tweet and gave her perspective on the knowledge of “local professionals.”
“Truth is most “local pros” aren’t very good and the great ones are $$$$. It’s the fun trend to shit on me but I’ve played at a high level and I’ve learned from the best.” said Paige Spiranac, “If I weren’t doing social media, I would be a teaching pro. I’m giving you great instruction for $10 a month.”
This didn’t go very well with some users, especially the local pros who took offense with Paige Spiranac’s tweet.
It’s a bit disrespectful to say the most local pros aren’t very good, don’t you think?”
This user stated that local pros are the ones who teach juniors at meager incentives.
“Local pros are fantastic”
However, not all reactions were bitter. Some did agree with what Paige Spiranac was trying to say.
“Paige knows what she is talking about.”
“Keep doing you let the haters walk.”
“Most can’t play.”
“If you’re a scratch golfer, you’re probably better than the local pro.”
