Paige Spiranac has joked she is both “sexy and smart” after nailing her US Open golf picks.
The former professional golfer was named Maxim magazine’s ‘World’s Sexiest Woman’ for 2022 last week. And the 29-year-old had even more to celebrate after it became clear she had nailed her predictions for the major.
Spiranac backed Matthew Fitzpatrick, 27, to claim his first major, which he secured with a one-shot victory at The Country Club on Sunday evening. One Twitter user revealed how the stunning social media influencer was spot on with her prediction, quoting her as saying: “I know I pick him (Fitzpatrick) every week, but he won the course at the US Am and having good memories is a huge advantage.”
She had also said on Instagram: “The Country Club, you need to drive it really well, so off the stats, we're looking at Jon Rahm, Corey Conners, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Viktor Hovland and Keegan Bradley.
“Off of those five players, I have the best kind of gut feeling about Jon Rahm–he had an amazing press conference–and then Matthew Fitzpatrick who has won on this golf course on the US Am."
Spiranac responded to the tweet highlighting her psychic skills by joking: “Guess you can be sexy and smart. Who knew.”
The blonde bombshell became the first sportswoman to take the top spot in Maxim’s top hot 100 list. It came in a busy week for Spiranac, who followed up her well-deserved new title by wowing fans with skimpy USA-themed attire on day two of the US Open.
She posed for an Instagram photo in a stars and stripes-themed bra that left little to the imagination, leaving thirsty fans in awe as they left comments like: “God bless America.”
