“I was very conflicted because I got the username Paige Renee because I was being stalked and harassed in college by these girls and so I had to delete my Instagram,” Spiranac explained according to nypost.com. “It was really bad, they were stalking me on campus.”

She said that it was about a boy- the strength trainer- when she used to play Division 1 college golf at both the University of Arizona and San Diego State University. “I clearly had no interest in him but they thought I did. I think that’s what it ended up being, who knows,” she continued. Spiranac then deleted her old account, and went by the name Paige Renee. Even as her Instagram account soared, the name remained the same- and it remains the same even now.
