Paige Spiranac: "Guys were using me for golf lessons"

Paige Spiranac has revealed on her latest 'Playing-A-Round' podcast how a number of men have dated her in the past simply to "take advantage" of her for golf tips. 

Spiranac, who has amassed 2.4 million followers on Instagram, admits finding love has taken time for her since the majority of men she has dated have only ever wanted to improve their golf games.

"I would always open up a conversation with, ‘Hey I play golf’ and anything along those lines and I thought that it would work,” said Spiranac on her latest podcast.

"Unfortunately, guys were using me for golf lessons, golf equipment and golf balls.

"(They’d say) ‘So Paige, let’s go out on a golf date. I’ll take you to this driving range and we can just hit golf balls’ and I’d be like, ‘Yeah, that sounds awesome’. It would turn into an hour lesson of me just helping the guy become a better golfer.

"That happened all the time, since I was desperate and I wanted guys to like me."

While now happily engaged at the age of 27 years old, Spiranac also claimed a number of past dates were already in other relationships at the time.

"There was this other guy who did the same thing but he wanted golf lessons, and he would text me like 24/7, he was really cute and flirty with me," she said.

"But the only time we would go on ‘dates’ – and I put that in air quotes – is because they were lessons, and so I would sit there and give him lessons, and he didn’t tell me he had a girlfriend for six months!



"Six months and all of these lessons and nothing happened. He was like, ‘I just want to take it slow, can you help me with my takeaway?’

"It happened all the time and I never learnt my lesson because I thought, ‘This is my way in, guys think I’m cool because I play golf’. Then it just turned into me giving them golf balls and getting them on courses for free.

"They were all in other relationships!"
