Although the post received more than 125,000 “likes,” Spiranac revealed that day on X how the image sparked “outrage.”
“It’s amazing the outrage this outfit is causing on Instagram. It’s just a little cheeky or booty cleavage as I like to say lol. I think it’s quite tame and this picture is cute. Thoughts?” Spiranac asked her legions of followers on the platform.
The mixed responses then came pouring in.
“You’ll break the internet,” one X user responded.
Another remarked, “Paige, you don’t need to get tacky to keep the brand doing well. This is a little bit more than is needed.”
One fan even penned an open letter on behalf of “everyone.”
“Paige………please be more outrageous … Love, Everyone,” the message on X read.
Over on Instagram, Spiranac — who boasts nearly four million followers on the platform — defended her ensemble.
“I’m literally wearing a full golf outfit. Just a very small amount of cheek is showing. You can’t see anything,” she wrote in the comments.
Spiranac, 30, has long been known for her revealing golf styles.
During an appearance on the Cavinder twins’ “Twin Talk” podcast in October, the OnlyPaige helmer explained how a conservative look once caused an uproar.
“There was one time where I wore a full turtleneck [and] leggings. I was completely covered from head to toe, and people were upset with my outfit,” Spiranac recalled.
“When that happened, I just said, ‘OK, well I’m just going to do what I want to do, and I’m going wear what I want to wear and if people like it, great and if they dislike it, OK great.’”
Spiranac’s profile has only continued to rise as she covered Maxim’s Hot 100 issue in 2022.
“I just couldn’t believe it. Even up to when we did the photo shoot, when the magazine came out, I’m like, I’m still in disbelief that this actually happened,” she told The Post last September.
“It’s such an honour and I still, to this day, I look at the magazine and I’m like, ‘That’s not me, I can’t believe this happened.’”
Spiranac briefly played professional golf before seguing to social media.
