PAIGE SPIRANAC fans blamed her off-putting outfit as they lost their grip on her golf tutorial.
The ex-pro golfer wore a swimsuit for a video lesson on the short game and said: “It’s not the size of your grip that matters, it’s how you use it.”
Many followers admitted they were too “distracted” to focus on her putting tips.
And when one troll complained it was “sickening. Lingerie doing golf lessons” she took a swing at him.
Paige fired back: “I know you’ve never seen it in person but that’s not lingerie. This is” – along with a snap of herself in scarlet underwear.
The online star 30, began her advice by talking fans through the two main ways of holding a club – the “traditional grip” and “left-hand low”.
The American said: “Those are the most popular grips. If it still feels uncomfortable to you, check your grip size.
“Some people like a smaller or a thicker grip. It’s all personal preference.
“Remember it’s not the size of your grip that matters, it’s how you use it.
“I think that’s how the saying goes…”

But followers complained – if that’s the right word – of being unable to focus on her wise words.
One confessed: “Golf is not my first thoughts.”
Another posted: “Sorry @PaigeSpiranac. Could you repeat that I was a little distracted! “
A third admitted: “All I heard was the sound of my drooling… What was the lesson here?”
But one fan said: “Thank you, I learned a lot from this” and added, perhaps optimistically: “Do you do private lessons?”
Another enthusiast insisted he was keen to turn what he saw into practice.
He wrote: “This helped a lot thank you, can’t wait to try it out at the golf course.”
Most of the admiring comments landed safely but a few fell into the rough you sometimes get on social media.
And when Paige felt one shot veered too far off the other way, she gave it the full treatment.
The golf fan sounded like part of the sporting establishment Paige often rails at as he posted: “This is sickening.
“Lingerie doing golf lessons. Anyone who pays for this is as bad as she is. Sickening.”

Paige responded by giving him an undressing down – with a lingerie photo that quickly drew hundreds of likes.
You might say he was schooled by the tutor!
