Professional golfer Charley Hull's viral exploits on tour continue as a new video emerges of her signing a fan's dart at last week's KPMG Women's PGA Championship.


It was just last month that Hull went viral after being photographed ripping a cigarette during a break between rounds at the U.S. Women's Open. That image of the English star smoking on the course quickly spread across social media and golf websites.

Now, Hull's "dart szn" as fans have dubbed it on Twitter, has come full circle. At the KPMG Women's PGA at Sahalee Country Club in Washington, a fan named @hatchfence on TikTok approached Hull for an autograph. But this fan had a unique item - one of Hull's signature cigarettes.

"Could you sign my dart?" the fan asks Hull in the video. With a chuckle and smile, Hull replies "I don’t how I can do that, but I’ll just put CH." and signs her initials on the cigarette.


The lighthearted interaction captured on video is just the latest example of Hull embracing her newfound notoriety. After the smoking photo from the U.S. Women's Open went viral, more images surfaced of other players showing Hull the picture on their phones and laughing about it.


On the course, Hull has also been playing well. She finished T-16 at the KPMG Championship, shooting one over par for the tournament. Eyewitnesses reported seeing Hull enjoying a vape between rounds, continuing to unapologetically own her rebellious image.


At just 28 years old, Charley Hull has cemented her status as one of the most popular and watched players on the LPGA Tour, in no small part due to her antics off the course. It remains to be seen what new viral moment Hull has in store next, but one thing is for certain - she's enjoying every minute of her celebrity.


Some memorable moments from Charley Hull's viral run



The photo that started it all was totally hilarious. During the US Open in June, they snapped a photo of Charley just chilling and having a smoke while waiting to tee off. I mean, you're not supposed to do that but it was such a relaxed, don't-care moment. That pic went insanely viral.


Nelly Korda showing Charley the smoking photo at their next tournament was priceless. Nelly pulled out her phone to show Charley and they both just cracked up, you could tell Charley was loving the attention.


Then at the KPMG PGA, a bold fan asked Charley to sign his cigarette! You could see the smile on Charley's face as she wrote her initials, she was totally in on the joke about her smoking antics by that point.


Eyewitnesses said Charley was hitting her vape between rounds at later events too. Really cementing that bad girl image, you gotta respect it!


Fans were having a blast with it too, making shirts and tweets about "dart szn." Even Charley got in on the tweets with a cigarette emoji.


She just seemed to be having the best time hamming it up for photos with fans and signing their cigarette memorabilia. Other pros like Lexi Thompson said they admired how comfortable and unapologetic Charley is - really owning the fame from it all.


It was so fun to watch Charley go viral and really lean into the rebel persona the photos gave her. Made her an instant cult hero on tour this season!
