Updating Fans Via YouTube Vlogging

Spiranac hosted a Vlog on her YouTube channel during the tour of Lake Geneva. Following weeks of heavy criticism against the Breakway Tour, she did a 180 and dropped some comments on its dress code, especially the one allowing men to wear shorts on the course.

Spiranac Has Doubts On The Location

The 29-year-old also hosts a Podcast, "Playing A Round," where she shares opinions on golf. The latest episode, It's A Bit, saw her discussing with longtime friend Dan Regester and dropping more controversial views.

She shared her thoughts on the recent LIV Golf tour, including its roots and location choices. With its club Rich Harvest Farm being a long way from Chicago, Spiranac couldn't understand why LIV named the Windy City its host.

Despite that, Spiranac demanded a more specific location announcement in the future for a larger turnout.

Final Thoughts

LIV Golf remains a nemesis for her PGA Tour, which Spiranac vocally supports. In recent news from Golf Week, the two opposite leagues are engaged in a legal battle. They have different rules and opinions on how players should conduct themselves, with critics calling out the PGA league for allegedly firing players without cause.

Spiranac, however, took to her Twitter to support LIV's new shorts policy, adding that she'd always advocate for less clothes. She wrote,

I've always been in favor of less clothes. LIV golf allowing the guys to wear shorts is cool. Hope the PGA Tour does the same.
