Cameron Smith is not satisfied with the Official World Golf Rankings, considering that it is not a realistic indicator of the quality of golfers at the moment. The Australian is currently 11th on the ranking list. The biggest problem for him is the fact that LIV Golf does not provide ranking points.

In an interview with the media, Cameron Smith emphasized that OWGR is currently irrelevant. "It’s a hard one to let go but I feel like it’s almost become irrelevant, especially for how I’ve played. Even during the Majors.

I didn’t win a Major this year but I had a fourth and ninth in there as well, so a pretty solid Major season. If I didn’t play well in those four events, I think you’d find me way outside where I am at the moment.

I don’t think it’s a very accurate reflection of where I am at the moment, but that’s just the way it is”. - he said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com!

Cameron Smit and his motive

Smith, however, still has the motive and desire to win no matter what.

The Australian is currently one of the best golfers and he is aware of it. Precisely for this reason, he does not want to give up his goals and wishes to be the best! “We‘re competitors and I think everyone wants to win.

So every time we were up at a golf tournament, you should want to win. It definitely hasn’t changed for me at all”. Cameron Smith also spoke about the Australian Open. This year, he wants to achieve a better result, considering that the previous tournament was not the best for him.

"I think I just need to do a better job of managing some time within that first week. I just felt really lethargic the next week and obviously didn’t play that good, so it’s a bit of a bummer”.
