Paige Spiranac “so upset” at racism accusations after Hideki Matsuyama comments

Golf babe Paige Spiranac has been left “upset” by accusations of racism against her.

Spiranac had said next year’s menu for the Masters champions dinner would be “absolute fire” following Hideki Matsuyama’s win at Augusta this weekend.

He became the first Japanese man to win a golf Major tournament, finishing one shot clear of the chasing pack.

The winner of the previous year’s tournament gets to choose a menu for the competition with Matsuyama set to host a dinner next year.

Spiranac had said: “The menu for the champions dinner is going to be absolute fire next year,” which some commenters dubbed as “racist.”

Though Spiranac, who regularly posts racy pics on social media, responded: “I made a comment about how amazing the menu will be next year because I love Japanese food.

“Most winners create menus to honour where they are from and I would expect Hideki to do the same.

“I don’t care if someone calls me a slut but to be called a racist is uncalled me [sic]. I would never and I’m honestly so upset about this.”

Matsuyama was seen at the airport, seemingly heading home, carrying the famous Green Jacket.

He said following his win: "I am really happy. My nerves really didn't start on the back nine, it was right from the start and right until the very last putt.

"I was thinking about them [friends and family] all the way around. I am really happy I played well for them.

“Hopefully I will be a pioneer and many other Japanese players will follow and I am glad to open the floodgates."
