PAIGE SPIRANIC trolled Bryson DeChambeau over his topped drive at the Players Championship that gave her 'so much joy'.

DeChambeau is known for his long drives and hit the ball 377 yards on a par 5 at Bay Hill this month.

But things did not go so well for the current World No5 at TPC Sawgrass in Florida.

Ex-golfer turned influencer Spiranac, 27, was one of those relishing in the gaffe.

DeChambeau, 27, topped his drive with the ball landing just 96 yards in front of the tee on the par 4.

She tweeted: "I get so much joy from watching the best in the world hit hacker shots just like us."

And it is not the first time Spiranac has had a laugh at DeChambeau expense, last year claiming he ‘deservedly gets a lot of s***'.

It came after DeChambeau finished two under par in the Masters – 18 shots behind eventual champion Dustin Johnson.

Spiranac was rooting for fan favourite Lee Westwood at the Players Championship, but he eventually came runner up to Justin Thomas.

Englishman Westwood, 47, led heading into the final day but he was pegged back after a wobble on the front nine.


He said: "I hate to say it but age is catching up with me.

"I didn't quite have my game – on Saturday I felt like my legs were just getting a bit tired and weak, [on Sunday] I didn't feel like I had my legs under me. I was hitting shots I don't usually hit.

"I battled all day, made some nice putts, slightly disappointed I didn't win but you can't be too unhappy with a second place at the Players Championship.

"It just shows I am playing really well and my game is still good enough to win out here.

"Something to work on and hopefully recharge the battery and keep this run going."
