Paige Spirinac revealed online trolls told her to kill herself after she suggested a change to golf’s calendar.
The social media personality was gripped by the World Matchplay tournament at the weekend when she took to Twitter.
She wrote: “One major should be match play.”
And Spiranac, 28, later revealed that suggestion led vile comments on social media.
Speaking on her Instagram stories, she said: “Yesterday, because I love match play I said one major should be match play on Twitter and a lot of people were agreeing.
“Then Golf Memes posted it on Instagram and people were roasting me. It wasn’t like ‘no’ it was outrageous, actually it was pretty funny.
“Obviously it’s a hypothetical and it’s never going to happen so don’t hate me or tell me to kill myself over this — which is also what was happening which is bizarre in itself.”
The pro golfer last week told an Australian commentator to ‘f–k off’ after he criticised an advert she appeared in.
Francis Leach was flicking through a copy of The Age newspaper, when he saw an image of Spiranac wearing a low-cut dress in a gambling ad.
The 53-year-old subsequently hit out at the ‘reductive’ advertisement.
In a now deleted tweet, he wrote: “At a time when the objectification and abuse of women, reducing them to being little more than playthings for men is being exposed for what it is, how can @theage run garbage like this for revenue?
“It’ll editorialise in the front, cash in at the back. Hypocrisy.”
