She is known as the head-turning golfer who went from playing the sport professionally to becoming a worldwide social media celebrity almost overnight. But there is far more to Paige Spiranac than just what meets the eye. Read on to discover the many trials and tribulations the golfer went through in life to get where she is today. As they say, never judge a book by its cover.
Born To Be An Athlete
On March 26, 1993, Paige Spiranac was born into a family of athletes. Her father Dan Spiranac was a college football star who played at the University of Pittsburgh and helped the Panthers take home a national championship in 1976. Her mother Annette Spiranac was a professional ballerina known for her astounding twirls and turns across the dance floor.
It only makes sense that two athletic parents would raise two athletic kids. The Spiranac’s first daughter Lexie was awarded an althetic scholarship to attend Stanford University, where she competed on the track and field team. Then came Paige who, as we know, went on to become a professional golfer. But as time would tell, the road to getting there wouldn’t be an easy one.
