Former pro golfer Paige Spiranac recently sat down with Golf Digest to talk about everything from her childhood to her career as an influencer today.

The 30-year-old onetime SI Swimsuit model is often critiqued for everything from her personality to her casual athleisure on the golf course. At the time of her 2018 SI photo shoot in Aruba, Spiranac admitted she was cyberbullied and used the opportunity to shed a light on the issue.

Today, the golf influencer continues to unapologetically be herself, and she shared her body-positive, self-assured attitude with Golf Digest.

“What I produce is not that provocative,” she told the outlet of her social media content. Spiranac has a more than 6 million followers across Instagram, TikTok and Twitter, where she regularly posts about golf and lifestyle-related topics. “If my body makes someone uncomfortable, that’s not my problem. I’m not doing anything illegal. I’m not causing harm.”

Spiranac added that while she’s often criticized by women in particular, she calls herself a “girl’s girl” and said her online persona, while different from her real-life personality, is authentic.

“They put us in a box, and then they get mad when we get out,” she stated of her haters.
