Count golf social media superstar Paige Spiranac as one of many not feeling LIV Golf. The woman who was named the “Sexiest Woman Alive” by Maxim magazine in June held the line for the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup Playoffs trashing LIV Golf and the “f**king baby” players who have chosen the new tournament even while facing a ban from the PGA.

Although the “Playing A Round” podcast host made it clear that she isn’t “anti LIV or anti PGA” she made sure to give those that have rolled with LIV the business on the podcast.

“James Hahn had this series of tweets that were so incredibly out of touch,” Spiranac said on the podcast. And it’s like, ‘so, you’re asking for them to cover your expenses? Maybe we can add that. Maybe we can add better accommodations for caddies. OK, we can add that.'”

The former collegiate and pro golfer was upset at golfer James Hahn, who complained on a Twitter thread about paying for his expenses to travel on the PGA Tour. He questioned the practice, and Paige was not here for it. However, that was her playing softball on the topic until she decided to let the world know how she felt about golfers on tour.

“But at what point, it’s like you keep sucking these guys off. They’re going to keep wanting more and more and more and more and more. And where does it stop? At some point, it’s ‘Yes, you are an employee, and there are things that you have to do in your job that are really f**king s**tty, and you have to deal with it.

“And it’s like this, ‘we want more, we want want want want want,’ and it’s like stop being a f**king baby about it! You get to play golf for a living, and you are making millions and millions of dollars. James Hahn was like, ‘I missed the first day of school for my daughter,’ and like, you didn’t have to do that. You did not have to do that. You are not the only parent in America who has had to miss a big milestone in their children’s lives.”

Many fans, including Paige, feel the increase in earning potential from competitive tours like LIV Golf has made crybabies in golf. In prize money alone, LIV Golf players have been competing for $225 million over eight events.

Seven tournaments have a $25 million purse, with a $50 million finale at Miami – Trump National Doral. That doesn’t include their appearance fees or the incentive money that has been tossed around to lure players from the PGA and DP World Tour.

The series is backed by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF), making it the most controversial tournament in sports due to the Saudi kingdom’s abysmal human rights record.

Late last month, Bubba Watson left the PGA Tour. According to multiple reports, the two-time major champion’s compensation is “in excess of $50 million,” He is also expected to be a team captain for one of the league’s 12 teams as part of its 48-player field for the 2023 season.

Spiranac has now added her voice to the crowded room, not feeling the shifts in the golf business.
