FORMER pro golfer and Instagram star Paige Spiranac has congratulated Bryson DeChambeau after he won the first Major.
The 27-year-old – who has been critical of her American compatriot in the past – said he deserved to win the US Open after his last round heroics.
Taking to Twitter, Spiranac said: “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.
“Well deserved win.”
Speaking in July during the Memorial Tournament in Ohio, Spiranac blasted DeChambeau‘s behaviour.
The social media personality slammed the 27-year-old for arguing with a PGA official about an out-of-bounds decision.
She 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?”
Spiranac has seen her Instagram following grow exponentially since lockdown, as she now boasts over 2.8 million followers.
The former Cactus Tour star delighted her fans last month when she wore a skintight white dress while performing a flop shot.
Meanwhile she also wowed her supporters when she uploaded a clip of herself nailing a trick shot using her cleavage.
Earlier this year, Spiranac revealed how she has received death threats after criticising push-cart users on the golf course.
