Cameron Smith

Smith won the 150th British Open, held at the Old Course at St. Andrews, by a shot over Cameron Young to earn his first major championship. Held a two-shot lead after the second round with rounds of 67-64, and after a third-round 73, entered the final round trailing by four shots. On the front nine on Sunday, Smith shot two-under 34. On the back nine, he made five birdies in a row, starting on the 10th hole, and topped the day with a birdie at 18 to shoot 30 and 64. He was one better than Cameron Young, who made an eagle at the final hole. He was two shots better than Rory McIlroy, who had a share of the third-round lead. Smith shot 20-under, 268, the lowest score ever shot in an Open at St. Andrews and matching Henrik Stenson's 20-under-par total in the 2016 Open at Troon, the lowest to-par score in a major. His remarkable 30 on the back nine was the lowest ever by a British Open champion. Became the first player to win The Players Championship and British Open in the same year since Jack Nicklaus in 1978.
Smith's father, Des, a well-known club baseballer before becoming a scratch golfer, got Smith started in the game at age 3, taking him to Wantima Country Club just outside of Brisbane, Australia. Smith was playing six-hole competitions as a 5-year-old with cut-down clubs and by age 10, had a single-digit handicap. His amateur wins included the 2013 Australian Amateur Championship, 2012 Australian Junior Championship, 2012 Australian Stroke Play Championship, and 2011 Nomura Cup individual title. He also represented Australia at the 2012 Eisenhower Trophy.
Played in two events on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2013: Missed the cut at the Mylan Classic and T-61st at Price Cutter Charity.
Finished 5th on the 2014 Asian Tour Order of Merit as a rookie. Had seven top-10s in nine starts. He finished T-5th in his debut on the PGA Tour at the CIMB Classic in the fall of 2014 (2015 season) five shots behind champion Ryan Moore. Smith was the first player to finish in the top 10 of a PGA Tour event in his debut since Chris Wood's T-5th at the 2008 British Open. In fact, other than Smith and Wood, only Anthony Kim (T-2nd at the 2006 Valero Texas Open) and Andres Romero (T-8th at 2006 British Open) have picked up top-10 finishes in their Tour debuts since 2000. Like Russell Henley, who won the 2013 Sony Open in his first professional start on the PGA Tour, others had competed previously in Tour events as amateurs.
2015 Notes: When Smith finished T-5th at the CIMB Classic, he earned an exemption for the next PGA Tour event. So at the last minute, it was off on a 25-hour trip to Mississippi, where he missed the cut. After that, he received other invitations to play on the PGA Tour through sponsor exemptions. Smith experienced another magical moment at the U.S. Open. After missing the cut at The Memorial, he played in the U.S. Open qualifying, where he shot 69-67 to earn a spot in the field. At the U.S. Open, he posted a pair of 70s, then a third-round 69. In the final round, he shot even par on the first nine and was one over par through 15, but birdied 16 and eagled 18 to shoot 68 and finish T-4th. The importance of his eagle at the last hole meant he would play at the Masters in 2016. With a good finish at the U.S. Open, he was able to climb to 89th in the Official World Golf Ranking, which secured a spot at the PGA Championship. With the finish, Smith also picked up non-member FedExCup points. He was at 362 points, which placed him about 10 positions away from possibly getting a crack at a full PGA Tour card for 2016. Smith finished T-25th at the PGA Championship and T-18th at the Wyndham, enough to put him into the top 125 of the FedExCup points list as a non-member, so he earned his PGA Tour membership for 2016. He ended his year with a T-36th at the UNIQLO Masters, T-13th at the Emirates Australian Open, and 5th at the Australian PGA Championship.
2016 Notes: Made 13 cuts in 24 PGA Tour starts. Best finish was T-11th at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. He ranked 157th in both the FedExCup standings and the money list. Because he lost his PGA Tour card, he went to the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. After a T-28th at the DAP Championship and missed cut at the Albertsons Boise Open, he made his third career Korn Ferry Tour start at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship, where he moved into the final-round lead with birdies at three of his first four holes on the back nine. Bogeyed the par-4 15th to finish runner-up, one shot behind winner Grayson Murray eventually. Secured a return to the PGA Tour for the 2016-17 season by finishing 7th in the final priority-ranking order.
2017 Notes: Got off to a good start in the new season, finishing T-11th at the Sanderson Farms Championship and T-10th at the Shriners Hospitals Open. At the end of the calendar year, he returned to Australia, where he finished T-2nd at the Australian Open and T-15th at the Australian PGA Championship. Finished T-6th at the Valero Texas Open. The next week won his first PGA Tour event with a birdie at the fourth hole of a sudden-death playoff at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with teammate Jonas Blixt, defeating the team of Kevin Kisner/Scott Brown. The duo shot 67-62-68-64 and went bogey-free for all 76 holes played (including the playoff), earning 400 FedExCup points and $1,022,400 each. At 23 years, 8 months, and 13 days, Smith became the fourth-youngest Australian to win on Tour (three players) behind Jason Day (22) and Adam Scott (23/twice). Finished T-7th at the Wyndham Championship and played in the first three FedExCup events. He earned a T-12th result at the BMW Championship, but it wasn't enough to get into the top 30. He finished 46th in the FedExCup standings.
