Paige Spiranac reveals why she does NOT post makeup-free selfies

Paige Spiranac has revealed she does not post makeup-free selfies on her social media platforms because she does not want to give her trolls "more ammo" to say horrible things about her. 

Spiranac, who has more Instagram followers than any other individual golfer, took to her Instagram Story to open up on her experience with the trolls.

Paige said: 

"I think that I usually just post when I have my hair and my makeup done because people have been so critical over my appearance lately and I don't want to give them any more ammo to call me all of these things.
"I think that's a part of it, security as well. And I just want to stay present in the moment.
"A lot of these events are with other people and I want to be engaging and not on my phone the entire time.
"And also I think people make it their personality to be like 'I'm always busy' so I don't want to come off like that or like I'm trying to brag.
"So all of these reasons are why I have this hesitation to post and share more but I need to get over that."

Paige recently opened up on being "fat-shamed", as well as how some men would date her for free golf lessons

Spiranac also responded to one of GolfMagic's latest social media graphics. 

PGA Tour star Max Homa then got involved, too.
