Paige Spiranac changed the world of golf forever when she became the sport’s biggest influencer.
Before she showed up, it was pretty much a boys club in terms of who played and covered golf. Spiranac made its mark felt in a way that immediately shifted the balance.
Now, it looks like she’s paved the way for new talent as well.
Claire Hogle started going viral recently, and many consider her the “next Paige Spiranac” for obvious reasons.
Hogle has 547,000 followers on Instagram and regularly goes viral for posts like this:
His brand is growing exponentially at this point.
That said, Spiranac remains the queen of the golf world, and that’s unlikely to change any time soon.
Spiranac has 3.4 million followers on Instagram. She refers to herself as the “insta OG golf girl” — and rightly so. She paved the way for a lot of these new girls like Hogle.
The engagement on Spiranac’s posts also largely speaks for itself:
But it’s not just the pictures. Spiranac can go viral for just about anything it wants. Whether it’s his brutal reaction to Brooks Koepka’s decision on LIV, his extremely provocative way of sipping a milkshake, his shirtless tribute to the greatest golf contest of them all, or his distinctive music videos featuring talent value, she effortlessly ignites the internet with regularity.
Spiranac also has a certain authenticity that remains unmatched.
Whether she’s talking about her humiliating personal photo leak or her recent harrowing divorce, she always stays real.

All in all, it’s easy to see why Hogle is establishing a following. And one day, she can legitimately give Spiranac a hard time.
But that day has not yet arrived.
Spiranac remains queen – and that’s unlikely to change anytime soon.
