Although most of the talk is about fairways and drives, the pair often discuss their childhood and home life.

Paige is a former golf pro at both the University of Arizona and San Diego State University.

And she explained how as a child she was convinced Santa was arriving every Christmas – with co-host Amanda stunned by the revelation.

Paige said: “I fully believed my parents that Santa existed until I was about fifteen.”

Amanda replied: “Shut the f*** up. I can so see you [doing that], oh my god. That is so you.”

Spiranac continued: “I knew about the Easter bunny, tooth fairy all that. But Santa? Santa I believed in for a very, very long time.

“I remember I was six or seven and other kids were saying ‘you’re dumb, there’s no Santa’. And I’m saying no, I believe.”

And it turns out Spiranac was in her mid-teens before the awful truth hit home, with the golf beauty blaming her ‘robot mom’.

‘I THINK WE NEED TO TALK’

She continued: “Anyone who knows my mom knows she doesn’t lie. I think she’s like part-robot, she has no emotions and never cries.

“She never lies, she’s the most honest person. Say we get money back and it’s a penny over she’ll get back in line for an hour to give it back.

“So I was like my mom would never lie to me about Santa Claus, this would ever happen.”

“Finally I was about 14/15 and we’re all sitting around on Christmas Eve and my aunt goes ‘you know Santa doesn’t exist’?

“So I go ‘mom, doesn’t Santa exist?!’ And she goes ‘I think we need to talk.”

Co-host Amanda is rendered speechless by the tale, replying: “I can’t believe you made it halfway to 30 believing in Santa. That is admirable.”

Paige has revealed before how her ‘scary’ mom almost banned her from playing golf after catching her cheating.

And a recent snap of the pair had fans believing they were TWINS.

During Christmas 2020, Paige unveiled a Christmas towel with ‘Ho Ho Ho’ written on it and said: ‘Because that’s what you call me all the time’.

While she repeated the trick a year later, posing in a sexy elf costume with a golf club and knee-high boots on the merchandise.
