Cameron Smith: "The team golf is here to go"

A little over a year ago a new reality of professional golf started. The first tournament of the LIV Golf Invitational Series was held on the Centurion Club course. Among the viewers of the YouTube channel, where the event was broadcast for free, there was one very interested, Cameron Smith.

Shortly thereafter, the Australian would find himself on the green of 18 St. Andrews, ready to lift the Claret Jug, Champion Golfer of the Year of the 150th edition of the oldest Major, to the sky. The next step would be to sign with the Saudi League, confirming the rumors that had grown increasingly persistent following his victory in Scotland.

Cameron Smith, statements

Smith's bystander comment left no room for doubt: "I think it's definitely a different kind of golf to see, and there's definitely a lot more going on because of the teams being there." Just over a year later, Cameron Smith is one of the protagonists of LIV Golf.

He is the Captain of the Ripper GC Team, made up of 100% down under players, and has one win to his credit (the Chicago stop last season). After the announcement of the merger between the Tours, Smith remains confident for the near future of the League.

“I think we will have to wait to see how things work out” “Maybe it's a little too early to tell, but yes, I feel I made the right choice for several reasons” “I think the last few weeks have scored another point in favor of us LIV Golf guys”.

Smith was asked to comment on the words of Nick Faldo who, a few days ago, expressed his total skepticism about the survival of LIV Golf and its place within the Golf ecosystem. “I don't think the LIV Golf will cease to exist” “Team competition, in particular, is the trump card, and it is destined to continue” “If someone were to ask any of us, all 48 guys, how they feel, I think everyone would answer that he is having fun and really enjoying what he is doing” “We all love competition” “Team competition brings players closer than ever before”.

And just to celebrate the Teams, on the first day played yesterday at the Centurion Club, the departures were made up of players from the same team.
