Paige Spiranac expects to see Salt Bae vs Lionel Messi replicated at Masters

Golf beauty Paige Spiranac thinks the cringeworthy scenes that saw Salt Bae chase after Lionel Messi at the World Cup final could be repeated at next year's US Masters.

On Tuesday, tournament organisers confirmed that LIV Golf rebels WILL be permitted to play at Augusta, despite their role in the sport's ongoing civil war. Chairman Fred Ridley confirmed: "We will invite those eligible under our current criteria to compete in the 2023 Masters Tournament."

Whether Ridley will want celebrity chefs on the course or presenting the Green Jacket to the winner is doubtful though, especially given the furore caused by the Turkish cook in Qatar on Sunday. Salt Bae, a friend of FIFA President Giovanni Infantino, made a beeline for Messi after Argentina had beaten France on penalties although the football star did not appear impressed.

Spiranac shared the footage on Twitter, and captioned it: "LIV players trying to say hi to Rory (McIlroy) at the Masters." Like with her all posts, Spiranac drew a mass, and mixed, response.

"Made me laugh at work today Paige thank you," wrote @lesman90, while @JDWhite96 quipped: "I doubt they would actually want to say hi to Rory."

@ACald11 took a brutal dig at McIlroy still needing a Masters win to complete a career Grand Slam: "Salt Bae looks more like Rory trying to get into the Champions Dinner at Augusta," he wrote.

Should LIV Golf players be allowed in the US Masters? Let us know in the comments section.

McIlroy of course, has been one of the most volatile critics of the Saudi-backed tour, and is now calling for CEO Greg Norman to step aside in order for the PGA to negotiate a compromise. After a slow start, the rebel venture has picked up a momentum with a string of big money signings, including Open champion Cam Smith.

Spiranac hasn't been shy to weigh-in on the saga either. Earlier this year, she brutally mocked Bryson DeChambeau after he managed to clothesline himself with the course rope at a LIV event in Chicago.

But lately, the influencer has been embracing the festive season in style. She recently dressed up as a sexy Santa to send her online following wild.
