PAIGE SPIRANAC got a hug from golf legend Gary Player in the hole and surprise in one.
The ex-pro turned social media star who happily achieved the feat all golfers aspire to in front of a player everyone wants to impress.
Spiranac anxiously checked that a friend had recorded her special moment—and when it was confirmed she had, raised her arms to celebrate.
And the South African ‘Super Veteran’ player, 85, seemed as happy as he proceeded to rejoice with the American.
Spiranac already has over 2 million Instagram followers, eclipsing major players such as Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and Dustin Johnson.
And with her trick shots, glamor poses and other updates, the 28-year-old has now posted an image any golfer would be proud of.
On the 148-yard par-three 14th hole, dressed in all black, he launched a terrifying t-shot, keeping his playing mates in silence.
A colleague shouted again: “Go in!” And the whole tea party erupted loudly, as out of the picture, the ball fell in.

The player first hugged Spirnack, who seemed stunned, but finally shouted: “Oh my god! I’ve done it!”
She turned to a woman who was making the video and asked excitedly: “Did you get it?!”
The answer came: “Yes! We got it!” – Much to the delight of Spiranac.
Ironically, after such ups and downs, he had started the month by highlighting one of the downs of golf in another tweet.
She posted: “Nothing makes me hate golf more than hitting a snap hook off the tee.”
