Paige Spiranac has a new equipment sponsor. The 24-year-old online influencer, who has a following of more than 1.2 million on Instagram, has signed on to be a brand ambassador for PXG.
“Paige epitomizes PXG’s customers – passionate golfers who value exceptional equipment,” said PXG Founder Bob Parsons. “She knows who she is and is unapologetic in her efforts to enjoy the game. I think that’s pretty cool and I think our customers will think so too.”
I’ve been a member at a country club at one point and then also had to clean a pro shop and do kids camps to somehow have a place to practice because I couldn’t afford to play. I’ve noticed that no matter where you are, who you’re surrounded by, what you wear, or how much money you have or don’t have we are all just playing a game where the same rules apply. The tradition of golf for me is tied into the integrity and honor of the game, not the exclusivity that you have to be a certain class of person or dress a certain way. Truth is we are all just trying to enjoy our day and play good golf.
Spiranac played collegiate golf at San Diego State University, where she was a First-Team All-Mountain West Selection in 2012-2013 and a Second-Team Selection in 2013-2014. She turned professional in 2015 and notched her first professional win at a Cactus Tour event at Orange Tree Golf Result in June 2016. She’s also competed in three high-profile events on the Ladies European Tour, missing the cut at the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters in 2015 and 2016. She finished T58 at the Ladies Scottish Open in 2016.

It’s off the course where Spiranac has become a star. Golf Digest put her on the cover of its May 2016 magazine, declaring her a “Futurist,” one of the “innovators and influencers changing the game” of golf. She’s best known for her fitness, fashion, and golf photos and videos. Spiranac has also been outspoken against online bullying as an Ambassador of the CyberSmile Foundation, and more recently, a critic against the LPGA’s new dress code.
PXG was founded in 2014. The ultra-premium golf equipment manufacturer has a PGA Tour staff of nine players, including major champions Zach Johnson and Charl Schwartzel. Its LPGA Tour staff also includes nine players, most notably two-time major champion Lydia Ko.
“PXG is changing the golf industry in a way that is exciting and refreshing,” Spiranac said. “I believe in the company and its people, and want to be part of what they’re doing. I’m excited to finally say I am a member of the PXG Troops!”
