Charley Hull has hit back at a 3-handicap male golfer who commented on Twitter he "would make every cut on the LPGA Tour and be a Top 20 player".
Hull, 27, took to Twitter after recording her fifth runner-up finish of the season following an agonising playoff loss to Minjee Lee at the Kroger Queen City Championship on Sunday.
After taking to her socials to reflect on another brilliant week on the LPGA Tour, Hull's attention was drawn to a tweet sent by golf stat supremo Lou Stagner, who informed his followers about a certain DM he received from a 3-handicap male golfer.
I love some of the direct messages I get.— Lou Stagner (Golf Stat Pro) (@LouStagner) September 11, 2023

The DM from the golfer read:
"I am a 3 handicapper that plays from 6900 yards and I hit my driver 290. I would make every cut on the LPGA and be a top 20 player."
"I love some of the direct messages I get. This guy would finish DFL in every single event."
Upon reading this tweet, World No.8 Hull could not help but get involved.
Shall we sort this game out I’ll let him play off the red tees whilst I’ll play off the whites https://t.co/MAGfE4hprP— Charley Hull (@HullCharley) September 11, 2023
Hull, who has won twice on the LPGA Tour, tweeted:
"Shall we sort this game out [eyes]. I'll let him play off the red tees whilst I'll play off the whites."

Hull's tweet was applauded by her followers, and even YouTube golf sensation Peter Finch says he wants to come and film the match.

"Yes please do this, my monies on Charley."
"I would give my left arm to watch this occur LIVE."
"This could be a YouTube series that would be absolutely massive."

"I would so watch that."
"Such a sexist DM, great response Charley."
"This needs to be a PPV."
