Who is Claire Hogle? Rising golf influencer from San Diego dubbed as 'next Paige Spiranac'
Claire Hogle, one of the up-and-coming golf influencers, calls herself a 'huge golf gal' and has more than 500K Instagram followers
The most well-known figures in the golf influencing world are Paige Spiranac and Isabelle Shee, but a new social media sensation is swiftly overtaking them. Meet Claire Hogle, who describes herself as a "huge golf gal" and has accumulated more than 500K Instagram followers, routinely shares pictures of herself on the course, where she initially "fell in love" as a teenager.
Hogle, a fellow golf influencer who, in the words of the UK's Daily Star, "already earned comparisons to Paige Spiranac." Hogle made a post in honor of Women's Golf Day on Instagram and wrote, "When I fell in love with the game at age 14, I was often the only girl at the course, always wishing I had other girls to play with. In the past couple of years, I've seen so many women take up the game and my circle of golf sisters has grown to include some of my closest friends."
Hogle added, "Golf has absolutely changed my life and it is truly so fun to see more women and girls enjoying this wonderful game. Cheers to all my women in golf!"
Hogle, a native of San Diego, participated in collegiate competitions while attending California State University, San Marcos. She participated in the sport throughout her freshman, sophomore, and junior years, but the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020–21 forced the cancellation of her senior season.
"And that's a wrap!! Incredibly grateful for these past four years as a Cougar," Hogle wrote on Instagram in June 2021. "Thanks to my coaches, teammates, family, & friends who made it so memorable and helped me out along the way. Now, time to figure out how to do life as a big girl in the real world!"
Hogle has continued to expand her online fan base since she graduated from college on TikTok and YouTube, where she posts videos of her amusing matches along with advice about golf. Hogle is most often found on the golf course, which is her "happy place" when she isn't posting content.
Hogle's dad, Glenn Hogle, has had a significant influence on her. She developed a liking for golf as a result of her father's enthusiasm for the sport. She unavoidably learned the rules and got familiar with the game because her dad played golf the majority of the time.
Hogle wasn't always keen about playing golf at first. When she was a student at Rancho Bernado High School, her mother had urged her to try playing golf at least once. She tried to deny it, but she discovered she liked the sport, so she decided to keep playing it in the hopes of making it a career.
