Cameron Smith on frustrations after winning the Open and questions about LIV Golf

Winning the Open was a big deal for Cameron Smith and a sign that he has a bright future ahead of him. However, at the press conference after the victory, Smith was frustrated that the questions were mostly about LIV Golf. Smith was still not a member of LIV Golf, but even then there were rumors that the Australian could end up there.

"Yeah, it was definitely, I guess, a frustrating media conference after the Open," said Smith. "I think, like you said, perhaps a little bit overshadowed that I'd probably just won the biggest tournament that I'll ever play in and someone was asking that."

Cameron Smith on reactions

Cameron knew that such a decision would bring reactions, mostly negative.

However, it seems that he was already aware of his decision then. LIV Golf presented him with a plan and offered him a contract that he couldn't refuse at that moment. Smith did not repent. "But as I look back on that, it's just a guy trying to do his job.

I suppose it was a little bit harder from then onwards, definitely whilst making the decision, just some nasty stuff, I suppose, said by the keyboard warriors. I knew it was going to be tough, but I feel since I made the decision, I made the right one." As a reason for coming to LIV Golf, many golfers emphasized the schedule that suits them.

After the merger, the question is what will happen. Smith wants to continue in the same way. "Exactly like it is this year would be perfect for me," Smith said on schedule. "14 and four majors, I'd take that for the rest of my career." The Australian thinks he did the right thing.

Judging by the progress of LIV Golf so far, it seems that the majority is satisfied. "I think we're going to see how stuff unfolds. It's probably still a little bit early to assume, but yeah, I felt I made the right decision for multiple reasons. I think the last few weeks is another tick in the box for all us guys."
