NBC Sports has bid farewell to Paul Azinger, their lead golf analyst for the past five years. While the network has not yet announced a replacement, one name has emerged as a potential candidate – Paige Spiranac.
Spiranac, known for her social media presence and racy golf posts, expressed her interest in joining NBC Sports after news of Azinger’s departure broke. Responding to calls from fans on social media, she quoted a post about Azinger’s exit and declared, “Fine, I’ll step in.”
When asked about the rumors surrounding her potential role at NBC, Spiranac playfully replied, “I’m a woman of the people. And the people want me to replace Paul Azinger. You can’t deny I’d bring two big attributes to the table: my personality and golf knowledge, of course.”
With close to four million followers on Instagram and nearly a million on X, Spiranac has become one of the most popular sports influencers on social media. Her recent viral “case study” on whether her golf performance is affected by her choice of clothing garnered attention and showcased her unique perspective on fashion and athleticism.
Spiranac’s background as a former gymnast has influenced her fashion choices on the golf course. She explained that due to financial constraints when she first started playing golf, she wore workout clothes from her closet. This unconventional approach to golf attire has become a signature style for Spiranac.
As NBC Sports searches for a new lead golf analyst, Spiranac has thrown her hat into the ring, ready to bring her personality and golf knowledge to the network. Fans eagerly await the announcement of Azinger’s successor and the potential addition of Spiranac to the NBC Sports team.
