Paige Spiranac is a busy woman.

The former college golf star turned golf influencer has to be to keep up with her nearly four million Instagram followers.

You’d think her life would be easier now that she’s not chasing her longtime dream of becoming a pro. Here’s what Spiranac had to say about that decision last month:

“From the first golf ball I ever hit, I dedicated everything I had to being a pro golfer,” Spiranac revealed on her Playing A Round With Paige podcast this week.

“I was homeschooled. I practiced every single day, morning until night. It was my only goal. I was a highly ranked junior golfer and then at 18 I had to make the decision to go to college or turn pro.”

“So many growing pains,” Paige explained. “I was burnt out of, I wouldn’t say golf, just dedicating my life to something and not really seeing the results. With gymnastics, it was hard because I was fighting injuries and then with golf — golf is such an interesting sport because you can work out, eat right, practice and still not achieve your goals. That was something for me that I just couldn’t wrap my head around.

“It also went against everything that my parents ever told me because I come from two athletes. They always said, ‘If you put the work in and you dedicate your life to something, you will be successful.’ But that just wasn’t happening with golf and I was driving myself crazy because I felt like I should be achieving at a much higher level. … I had everything to be a world class golfer, but I just couldn’t put it together and I didn’t know why. It was driving me actually insane.”

But things didn’t get easier. In fact, some would argue that Spiranac’s life is more hectic these days.

Spiranac is always doing something. Sometimes it’s Instagram. Sometimes it’s TikTok. And other times she works on her own site, OnlyPaige.

But there’s never a dull moment.

Such was the case on Friday.

Spiranac took to Instagram to answer some commonly asked fan questions.

She says that she’s a scratch golfer, and her lowest-ever round is 63. Spiranac explains her decision to leave pro golf. And she spills other details, like her favorite color and flower.

But it was one answer that caught some eyes.

“They are real and spectacular,” Spiranac said.

We’ll let you figure that one out. But her followers have been dying to know for years now.

So thanks for clearing that up, Paige.
