The PGA Tour’s Valspar Championship ended with a lot of excitement as, for a few minutes, it looked like there might be a 3-way playoff including Jordan Spieth.
Tampa, Florida-based Golf influencer Karin Hart was in attendance. She’s been referred to by many in the golf world as ‘Paige Spiranac‘s rival.’ Hart is also known as “your favorite golf babe.”
Karin Hart is now going viral after sharing a moment with Justin Thomas who finished t10th at the Valspar Championship.
Channeling his inner Happy Gilmore, Justin Thomas autographed Karin Hart’s chest. Hart shared the autograph on her Instagram Stories (since expired) with the caption “You made my year.”
In this TikTok at the :13-second mark, she can be seen laughing after Justin Thomas autographed her chest:
Had a great weekend watching the #ValsparChampionship at Innisbrook from The Rooftop presented by Dex Imaging and designed by Ashley! And playing the Copperhead Course the day-after/on Monday was a real treat 😊 highly recommend coming out to Innisbrook for a golf trip, it’s great for the whole family and a truly special place. ⛳️🐍🎨 #valsparchampionship #innisbrook #palmharbor #florida #floridagolf #golfbabe #golf #fyp #fyfy #explore

After posting about Justin Thomas autographing her chest, Karin Hart saw an influx of new followers and comments on her recent Instagram posts. Fans cannot get enough of the former University of Denver lacrosse player turned golf influencer.
One commenter wrote “Careful they might kick you looking like that. Causing a distraction with all that beauty.”
Karin Hart’s birthday coincided with the Valspar Championship in Palm Harbor, Florida. The Copperhead Course at the Innisbrook Resort is just a short drive from Tampa.
That short drive was probably very welcome for Hart who celebrated St. Patrick’s Day and her birthday on the same Friday:
It was, in fact, ‘cold’ at the Valspar by Florida standards. Wearing a small dress seems ill-advised.
Will you be at the #ValsparChamp today? ⛳️🐍🎨 It’s cold here today so I’m glad I wore my cute dress yesterday 😂 pic.twitter.com/8ftowuqvEA

On her Instagram Stories, Karin Hart shared footage of playing the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook on Monday. Playing a course the day after a PGA Tour event is a special treat.
The PXG Golf rep appears to have fun on the course and her social media footprint is growing en masse.
She was wearing pants and a jacket on the course as the weather was still cold. A lesson she likely learned from venturing out in a small dress during the recent cold front to Southwest Florida.
