And by perfect, we mean that she made an ace with her first shot using them… incredible!

The American was playing in a shot gun start and explained that she aced the 2nd hole of the day.

Her first hole of the day was a par-5 on which she didn’t use an iron.

Spiranac was in the news recently after appearing in Sports Illustrated Swimwear issue.

She revealed a nightmare story of her first start as a Tour Pro on the Ladies European Tour in an interview with Sports Illustrated.

The 24-year-old used the experience to promote cyberbullying.

The original 0311 irons were launched in 2015, in the early days of Bob Parsons’ Parsons Xtreme Golf company.

Parsons, a billionaire, started up the company after revealing that he spent $350,000 per year on equipment and still wasn’t satisfied.

I love a good par 3 course! 🙌🏻 #pxg

Since their start up in 2015, they’ve signed a whole host of Tour Players, known as PXG Troops, including Pat Perez, Billy Horschel and Lydia Ko – as well as Spiranac.

They hit shelves next month and will cost around £400 per club – meaning a standard 4-PW set will cost near the £2800 mark.

The headline addition on the new irons is the use of COR2, which is a proprietary polymer core material that is said to be 20% faster than the original filler material.

Spiranac has 1.4m followers on Instagram:

PXG say that equals more ballspeed, improved accuracy and consistency along with the same feel PXG irons are known for.

“It’s a tall task creating a club that’s better than the best, but that’s our commitment,” said PXG founder and CEO Bob Parsons.
