Paige Spiranac has congratulated Bryson DeChambeau on his maiden major triumph at the US Open but admits it's still "fun to give him s*** at times."
Spiranac, who has amassed just shy of 3 million Instagram followers, has been particularly vocal about DeChambeau's bad behaviour on the PGA Tour, particularly when he argued with a rules official at the Memorial Tournament.
It’s fun to give Bryson shit at times but you have to give him so much credit for sticking to his guns despite all the hate and now he gets to call himself a US Open Champion. Well deserved win.— Paige Spiranac (@PaigeSpiranac) September 20, 2020
"It’s fun to give Bryson s*** at times but you have to give him so much credit for sticking to his guns despite all the hate and now he gets to call himself a US Open Champion," tweeted Spiranac following DeChambeau's emphatic six-stroke win at Winged Foot on Sunday.
"Well deserved win."
Back in July, the social media sensation slammed DeChambeau for questioning his out of bounds decision with a rules official at Muirfield Village.
At the time, Spiranac said: "The way he acted to that rules official was so uncalled for and I think it just shows where his head space is at right now, where he thinks that he is literally pioneering the way that golf is being played.
"And so he is so far and beyond everyone else that he can tell a rules official, who their job is to know the rules inside and out.
"And for Bryson to say, ‘I don’t believe you, I need a second ruling.’ Who do you think you are?”
