“What golf swing?”

Paige Spiranac doesn’t have to do much to attract that rapt attention of the internet. The former pro golfer proved as much this week by posting a video of herself swinging in a golf simulation, albeit while wearing a figure-hugging powder pink bodysuit that showed off her second-best assets.

Though she initially posted the video to Instagram with the caption, “How far do you think my drive ended up going?” the video quickly got picked up by the NUCLR GOLF X (formerly Twitter) account, an interactive, online shot tracking community. “Describe [Paige Spiranac’s] golf swing using one word/GIF,” the account wrote.

“Most people forget I’m a scratch golfer,” the 30-year-old captioned the video, which she reposted on the platform on Thursday. For the uninitiated, a scratch golfer, also known as zero-handicap golfers, are players who can shoot par or better on any given golf course.

The video has since been viewed around two million times. “What golf swing,” one user wrote, in response to the aforementioned question. “That’s a pretty cool stimulator setup. I mean simulator,” quipped another.

But while Spiranac’s head-turning outfits clearly win her plenty of admirers, she’s also received her share of criticism for showing off her curves on the course.

“When I first started doing this I wanted to be taken seriously as a professional golfer, and no matter what I did or what I posted, I’d get hate,” Spiranac said in a recent podcast interview. “And there was one time where I wore a full turtleneck, leggings, I was completely covered from head to toe, and people were upset with my outfit.”

“And I was like, ‘OK well clearly, no matter what I wear or what I do, people are going to be upset about it,'” she continued. “So, I might as well wear what I want and live the life that I want to live, and I have always dressed a very certain way and I think it comes from my gymnastics background of being very comfortable in literally almost nothing.”

In either case, the consensus seems to be that Spiranac should keep doing what she’s doing.
