Meet Cameron Smith, PGA TOUR Professional– Cameron Smith (born 18 August 1993) is an Australian professional golfer. He turned professional in 2013. Smith has played on the PGA Tour of Australasia since 2013. His best finish is tied for second at the 2016 Emirates Australian Open and the 2015 Coca-Cola Queensland PGA Championship. Smith played on the Asian Tour in 2014, finishing in the top-10 seven times and finishing 5th on the Order of Merit. His best finish was tied for second at the CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters. Smith has been coached and mentored since 2004 by Golf Queensland coach Grant Field. Smith’s first PGA Tour event was the CIMB Classic in October 2014, which was a joint event with the Asian Tour; he tied for 5th. In April 2015, he tied for 15th in the RBC Heritage, playing on a sponsor’s exemption. After qualifying for the 2015 U.S. Open, his top-4 finish earned him an invitation to the 2016 Masters Tournament. The finish also earned Smith Special Temporary Membership on the PGA Tour for the remainder of the 2014–15 season. Smith earned his 2015–16 PGA Tour card by earning enough as a non-member to have been in the top 125 on the money list: his best three events would have been sufficient. He is a protégé of Grant Field, who became the head coach of Golf Queensland in March 2017. Partnered with Jonas Blixt, they won the 2017 Zurich Classic of New Orleans. His biggest individual successes is winning the 2020 Sony Open in Hawaii and the Australian PGA Championship, which he won back-to-back in 2017 and 2018.
