Now that we've gotten that out of the way, Paige Spiranac is making her professional golf debut this week in the Ladies European Tour's season-ending Omega Dubai Ladies Masters in the United Arab Emirates. The 22-year-old San Diego State product was given a sponsor's exemption into the 108-player event because...well...

Spiranac has 473,000 or so Instagram followers and another 52,000 or so Twitter followers. They're mostly -- probably 90 percent -- dudes who are salivating over the pictures and video she posts of her in tight clothing, sometimes showing off her golf skills, which are considerable. She has a powerful swing and seems to have a fearless short game.

But does that merit getting into what amounts to the Ladies European Tour's Tour Championship? Laura Davies isn't so sure.

“I don’t know her from a bar of soap,” Davies said Tuesday, according to The National. “I really don’t.”

Davies seemed reluctant to made her feelings patently obvious, adding, “I’ve obviously heard what some of the players have said, but I’ve not met her. I saw her last night at the players’ party, but didn’t speak to her. So I shouldn’t really ... I mean, good luck to her."

The Englishwoman, 52, doesn't really have much interest in social media, despite having a rarely used Twitter account and a Facebook page, so she doesn't get this "phenomenon." (This is basically why Instagram is popular, BTW.)

But, Davies wants to give Spiranac a fair shake.

“Everyone needs a chance and if she’s a good player, then it’s great she’s here. If she’s here for any other reason than she’s a great golfer, then it’s a little bit pointless. But we have to give her a chance. She might go and win the tournament and then it’s the best decision ever made.”
