A collegiate golfer is drawing comparisons to Paige Spiranac as the next mega popular golf influencer.
Lilia Schneider, 20, a junior at Marian University, is gaining popularity with more than 54,000 Instagram followers and a growing presence on TikTok were, like Spiranac, she posts humorous videos showing off her golf skills while also acknowledging her physical attributes.
“They say if you get your girlfriend flowers it will shave 3 strokes off of your game,” Schneider wrote in one video.
Spiranac gained a massive following in recent years amid her self-promotion for "sexualizing" women's golf and has playfully made jokes at her own expense. In June, the former collegiate golf standout shared a "social media vs. reality" of herself in which she wore a revealing outfit "on social media" and then a baggy shirt while teeing off in "reality."
“Jokes. I very rarely ever cover up lol the girls need air,” Spiranac wrote in the caption of the clip.
Spiranac, who played collegiately at the University of Arizona and San Diego State University, went pro in May 2016 and completed her first LPGA Qualifying Tournament, but didn't earn a card to play on the circuit, in August 2016.
