Cameron Smith Player Profile And What's In The Bag

By: | Tue 20 Sep 2022 | Comments


Article Updated in November 2022


CAMERON SMITH completed his astonishing year by winning the Australian PGA Championship for his fifth victory of 2022.

The Australian won the Tournament of Champions, Players Championship and Open Championship. He then moved to LIV Golf and wasted no time in winning again.

But this was a special victory for the Australian. It was his third success in this tournament, played in his home state of Queensland, and he did it after two weather delays, finishing with a 68 for a three-stroke win over Jason Scrivener. Smith had a final round of 60 for a winning total of 270, 14 under par.

Afterwards, he said: “It’s awesome. I really didn’t think I had it in me to be honest. The weather delays didn’t help. You kind’ve get the mojo and for it to be stopped not once but twice is a little bit frustrating. But I held on to it and played solid on these last eight holes.”

Scrivener caught Smith when the Open champion dropped a shot at the 11th but he bounced back with birdies at the 12th and 13th, and the result was never in doubt from that point.

Who Is Cameron Smith?

Smith was born in Brisbane on August 18, 1993. He has won six times on the PGA Tour, with three of those victories coming in 2022, three times on the DP World Tour and twice on the PGA Tour of Australiasia.

He turned professional in 2013 and first made his mark in America when he finished in a tie for 15th at the RBC Heritage, playing on a sponsor’s invite. In 2015 he earned his PGA Tour card but lost it after just one season but regained it for the 2017 season. In 2017 he teamed up with Jonas Blixt to win the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and finished the season inside the top 50 in the FedEx Cup standings. He ended the year by winning the Australian PGA Championship and successfully defended his title 12 months later.

He won the Sony Open in 2020 and finished runner-up at The Masters. In April 2021 he won the Zurich Classic for the second time, in partnership with fellow Aussie Marc Leishman.

He averages 300 yards from the tee and hits 59.8% of fairways. Smith hits 68.11% of greens in regulation and averages 4.76 birdies per round - nobody makes more. He averages just 28.07 putts per round.

Smith has no standing on the PGA Tour but his victory in Australia ensures he remains third in the world rankings.
