• The PGA Tour has created a new program called "Player Impact Program"
  • Paige Spiranac points out why she thinks she should be included in the program
  • Spiranac clarifies that she has no plans to make a golf comeback

A former golf player shared an interesting take on the PGA Tour’s new program.

The PGA Tour has come up with a one-of-a-kind program with a unique goal as well. The prestigious organization has apparently “created a lucrative bonus structure that will reward golf’s biggest stars regardless of how they perform on the course” called “Player Impact Program,” Golfweek first reported.

In the said program, the aim is to “compensate players” who have generated a huge fanbase and sponsor engagement, suggesting that famed golf stars such as Tiger Woods, Bryson DeChambeau, Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson will benefit from it.

Sharing her views on the subject, LPGA star-turned-internet sensation Paige Spiranac, asked if she could qualify in the program for drawing tons of attention through her physical appearance.

“Can I get in on this (Player Impact Program)? Would be nice to get some money anytime someone googles “are Paige Spiranac’s boobs real,” she wrote on Twitter.

The influencer further stressed that she might not have an array of accolades in professional golf, but her staggering numbers of followers on social media should be enough to count her in.

“I know I joke around a lot, but I have the highest engagement rate in golf and the most followers on Instagram,” she pointed out. “It’s a little frustrating when they are already making millions and now will have this but some brands and organizations still won’t pay the content creators.”

Unsurprisingly, Spiranac received mixed reactions from both her fans and golf followers on social media.

Some have agreed to her point, but others were quick to dismiss her case to be included in the program.

Lifting the lid on her bold statement, Spiranac cleared the air and admitted that it was “clearly a joke.”

At present, Spiranac is no longer playing golf and has revealed in the past that she has no intentions of making a comeback.

She last competed in 2016, and since then, the 28-year-old has embarked on non-sporting careers such as modeling and podcast hosting.

The PGA Tour’s “Player Impact Program,” on the other hand, was deliberated and formed in the wake of the emergence of a rival entity known as the “Premier Golf League.”

Like the “Player Impact Program,” the “Premier Golf League” has been actively attempting to lure players to take part in a new circuit that promises guaranteed payments.
