“It was one of my very first tournaments, I ended up hitting a ball in the water but I was on a very steep slope. I just ended up dropping another ball and saying I found it,” she added. Spiranac also revealed that her mother played an essential role in teaching her a lesson.

“I played it off and my mum, who packed my golf bag the night before, said ‘hey you started the round with six balls how do you only have five?’… She is one of the sweetest ladies ever but she is scary, you do not want to disappoint here. She just gave me this look and she said ‘if you ever do that again, if I ever catch you cheating, you will never play golf ever again.’

Spiranac understood that she had learned her lesson and told herself she was never going to cheat again. “I was like ‘OK’ and I learned my lesson.” she said. However, it has been a long time since she gave up her career as a pro golfer. Today, she is one of the most loved social media personalities.
