Golf’s glamor girl took to Instagram to do a Q&A with her 3.9million followers while being unwell and in bed, when one asked her how she has ever ‘had shade’ from the LPGA.
Spiranac replied: ‘Some of them are really cool and I’ve known for awhile. Some really hate how I present myself and the game on social media.
‘Empowered women empower other women so I’m hopeful we can just get the f*ck over it one day soon. I hold no ill will against anyone and understand we have a difference of opinion.
‘However we are all doing our part to bring awareness to the game in our OWN way. Bringing one another down only hurts us and the game.

‘It’s my therapy but also the reason I need therapy. I love how it challenges you mentally and physically. I love how many people I’ve met through golf and the amazing places it’s taken me.
‘I hate how stuffy golf can be. How judgement and closed minded some people are in the game. I believe it’s changing and getting better but it’s a constant struggle to feel accepted in a community I care so much about.’
Another fan asked Spiranac. 30, about her appearing to throw her hat into the ring to replace Paul Azinger on NBC Sports.
‘I think I would be great doing any type of commentary and could bring a new twist.,’ she answered. ‘People love fun personalities like a Pat McAfee and I feel we need more of that in golf.
But the problem always comes down to my brand. People see it as too risqué but I don’t agree with that.’
