After her putt at the Grand Canyon, Sigmond attracted a lot of attention. Her influencer position, however, had a negative side as others were able to identify her, which resulted in police enforcement getting involved.

According to the New York Times, Sigmond was initially accused of littering and acting unruly. However, the dispute was settled out of court, and Sigmond received a fine. The Grand Canyon’s official Facebook page published a statement following the widespread success of the video.
