Steve Hine (born 20 April 1969 in Coventry) is an English darts player who plays in Professional Darts Corporation events. He works as a baker and consequently he is nicknamed The Muffin Man. He is well known for bringing muffins and tossing them to the crowd during his walk-on.

Career[edit]

He reached the quarter-finals of the 2007 UK Open, claiming victories over Alan Tabern, Adrian Gray and Colin Monk before losing 6–11 to Colin Lloyd.

Hine has played in the PDC World Darts Championship four times. He lost in the first round in 2006 and 2008, but made the second round on his third attempt in 2010 after defeating 32nd seed Roland Scholten. This set up a second round meeting with Phil Taylor, who soundly defeated Hine in straight sets.

At the 2011 World Championship, Hine played against Raymond van Barneveld in the first round. He took the first set before eventually losing 1–3.
