Up until recently, Australia’s Cameron Smith could have passed for a high school golfer with his extremely youthful looks. But with his recent victory at The Players, there is no mistaking him for a high schooler any more. Smith has emerged as one of the stars of the game, currently ranked #6 in the world. At The Players, he held off the game’s best in scoring his biggest win to date. Smith now has five PGA Tour wins, but his career got off to a slow start. As a rookie in 2016, he finished 157th on the points list and had to re-earn his card. His breakthrough came the following year when he partnered with Jonas Blixt to win the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, a team event, for his first official Tour victory. Since then, it has been a steady progression of solid play with the occasional win thrown in for good measure. Smith is now the highest-ranked Australian over fellow luminaries such as Adam Scott and Marc Leishman. He is certain to be a fixture on the international squad at the Presidents Cup for years to come, and it would surprise no one if he were to win a major championship sometime soon.
