- Surprise appearance at Manly training
- She showed impressive footy skills
The world’s sexiest woman, Paige Spiranac, has taken a surprising turn in her career after leaving professional golf to focus on modeling and social media – rugby league.
The glamorous 29-year-old American was a surprise guest at Manly Sea Eagles training on Wednesday, after showing three of the club’s stars a thing or two on the pitch.
With 3.7 million followers on Instagram since leaving her professional career behind, Spiranac is now an ambassador for various companies with her own subscriber-only website ‘OnlyPaige’.
Paige Spiranac teamed up with Manly mainstay Toafofoa Sipley to take on Reuben Garrick and Jake Trbojevic in a round of nine holes of golf on Sydney’s northern beaches on Wednesday.

Spiranac has more than 3.7 million followers on Instagram, as well as a subscription-only website since leaving professional golf.
Before donning a Manly jersey to play football at Brookvale Oval, Spiranac teamed up with massive prop Toafofoa Sipley to take on Reuben Garrick and Jake Trbojevic over a round of nine holes at picturesque Bayview Golf Club in Mona Vale, on the beaches North Sydney.
Despite sinking an eight-foot or so putt described as ‘clutch’ by Garrick, and hitting a few well-timed shots, Spiranac and Sipley went down by a stroke, but that only further fired up the American.
They then returned to the club home, Brookvale Oval, where Spiranac proved that he was far from a one trick pony.

Spiranac said that if he was ever given anything to tackle, ‘just know I’m going to do my best’, and he tackled the bag so hard he almost fell on his face.
The athletic former professional golfer, who was featured in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue and named the ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ on Maxim’s Hot 100 list last year, went to tackle with aplomb.
She sent the tackle bag flying with all the grace and determination of a football player, commenting, “If you give me something to tackle I know I’ll do it all lol,” in a photo of her tackling him so hard that he was about to face down on ‘Brookie’s’ lawn.
To show that it was no fluke, Spiranac then hit a goal kick from the front, jumping for joy as it went over the crossbar.
She was there for the PointsBet betting company along with Australian ambassador Dale Thomas, the former Magpies cult figure, who also caddied and kept score.
