Paige Spiranac makes hole-in-one, gets celebratory hug from Gary Player (

Paige Spiranac made a hole-in-one. That’s cool in itself. But to do it in front of World Golf Hall of Famer Gary Player? Well, that’s just next level.

It happened on Monday at the 148-yard, 14th hole at Glen Arbor Golf Club in Bedford Hills, New York at a charity-golf event sponsored by Berenberg to raise money for Pancreatic cancer research. Player’s wife Vivienne succumbed to the disease earlier this year.

Spiranac, 28, is a former professional golfer and better known these days as a social media personality.

In her first tweet on her ace, she simply said, “Made a hole in one in front of Gary Player.”

She let that humble-brag sit there for four hours before flexing with the video proof.

In the video, Player is heard discussing his club choice with his caddie as the ball is in the air. Someone says, “Go in…GO IN!”

It did and it led to an eruption of cheers and the aforementioned hug from The Black Knight. As for Spiranac’s reaction: “Oh my God,” she said. “Did you get that?”

They did, Paige. That’s a keeper.
