Golf influencer Paige Spiranac got into a brief online spat with former Happy Days actor Scott Baio, one of the most curious arguments we’ve seen in some time.
Baio, a right-leaning actor whose most famous role was that of Chachi in the ’70s and ’80s sitcom, mistakenly targeted a video posted to X which had labeled a woman wearing risqué clothing as Spiranac.
Baio posted negative commentary about the women’s golf social media phenomenon prompting Spiranac to question what was up.
“Add Scott Baio to the list of people I never thought I would have beef with. What a world,” she wrote.
Baio, having realized his error, deleted the post.
Scott Baio and Paige Spiranac Feud?
Aside from deleting the erroneous offending tweet, Scott Baio, being a stand-up guy, apologized to Paige Spiranac and explained that the video post had brought his daughter into the conversation.
“My apologies. Someone posted a video saying it was you and attempted to drag my minor daughter (a junior golfer) and I defended myself,” Baio contends.
“I apologize as I don’t know you or the other woman from the video. I have no problem admitting when I am wrong.”
Spiranac agreed to let bygones be bygones and in a subsequent post showed that Paige too, loves Chachi. (If you get that and the ‘wah wah wah’ reference above you are old like me).
She even offered to give Baio’s daughter some golf lessons.
“I appreciate your apology. I understand how protective you must feel of your daughter,” she wrote. “I played junior golf at a high level, in college and as well pro for a little.”
“If your daughter ever needs any golf advice let me know!”
Paige and Scott Make Up
When she’s not offering golf lessons to Hollywood stars, Paige Spiranac is a tireless advocate for comfortable clothing on the links. Some would even say, “provocative” clothing.
In a recent Q&A on her Instagram account, the golf personality addressed those wondering about her chest size which she claims has changed since she started creating videos.
“They’ve actually gotten a lot bigger,” she said before adding, “It’s just that the human body is a magical thing.”
It certainly is. Scott, take her up on the lessons.
Following Spiranac’s last post, Baio replied by being thankful for her understanding.
