Media personality Paige Spiranac took to her Instagram story earlier this week to engage with some of her 3.9 million followers in Q&A format.
While some people were interested in learning the 30-year-old golf instructor’s hobbies outside of sports, one fan wanted to know what it was really like working with Bryson DeChambeau. Spiranac and the 30-year-old, who is a LIV Golf League pro athlete, recently hit the links and created some content together.
“It was great. He is shockingly different in person than how a lot of us have perceived him over the years,” Spiranac stated of DeChambeau’s reputation. “He is kind and funny and very self-aware, and we had a conversation about that. I’m like, ‘I wish people knew this version of you,’ and although he might have matured and changed over the years, it’s drastically different and I feel bad that he had to endure that amount of like bullying. For me, like, I made jokes about him too, all of us did, and he’s the first one to like laugh at himself about those things that have happened.”
The two filmed a YouTube video together in which DeChambeau gave Spiranac a golf lesson. He posted it to his channel in late January, and the one-time SI Swimsuit model noted that their time together was “a lot of fun.”
“He just was really pleasant to be around and I learned so much,” Spiranac added. “He has like such an interesting brain when it comes to golf and how he views things.”
