Paige Spiranac had the perfect response to a poll question fielded on Twitter this week about amateur golfers quiting their job aged 30 and then going on to win major championships.
Spiranac, who has more Instagram followers than Tiger Woods with 3.2 million, responded to Samantha Marks' Twitter post.
No. And anyone who thinks they can don’t understand how hard it is to get to that next level— Paige Spiranac (@PaigeSpiranac) October 19, 2021
Marks tweeted: "Help me settle this heated debate... Do you think... If you were 30 years old... Quit your job... Had unlimited $$... And dedicated every minute to practicing/training/diet to becoming a successful pro golfer... Would you eventually win, or consistently contend at Majors?"
The current poll vote stands at 88% in favour of No.
Spiranac was one of those, and she had the perfect response in our eyes.
"No," said tweeted. "And anyone who thinks they can don’t understand how hard it is to get to that next level."
We are actually worried about the 12% who clearly think a life on the PGA Tour will just fall into place once they're P45 arrives on their desk.
GOLFTV and Golf Digest's Stina Steinberg also had a particularly blunt response for amateurs.
She tweeted: "You wouldn't even get into big amateur events, much less a pro tour event and definitely not a major. (And contending at a major? Forget it.) Gabby Reece tried this for 2 yrs, did nothing else, hit 250,000 golf balls a year and worked with Butch Harmon. Rarely broke 80."
