Paige Spiranac beats Tiger Woods to become Instagram’s most followed golfer

Tiger Woods is one of the world’s most renowned athletes, but he is not the most followed golfer on Instagram.

Golf Magic have put together a list of the top 10 most followed golf stars on the planet and the results are not what you might expect.

Indeed, the honour of top spot belongs to Paige Spiranac, a former professional golfer and now social media personality, who boasts more than 3.6 million followers on the platform.

Meanwhile, Woods is in second place but has some 600,000 fewer followers than his fellow American.

Overall, Spirananc is the only woman to feature in the top 10 list, which features five PGA Tour pros and four LIV Golf stars.

New world number one Rory McIlroy comes in at third, with 2.3 million followers, while Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth are fourth and fifth respectively.

None of these players come close to Spiranac, however, and the social media sensation offered a humorous explanation as to why she was so far out in front.
