Cameron Smith
Cameron Smith wants to go one better at the Australian Open than his 2016 runner-up finish.

Name: Cameron Smith

Age: 26

From: Brisbane

Previous Australian Open form: Has threatened to win several times, notably in 2017 when he was fourth and in 2016, when Jordan Spieth’s birdie defeated him in a playoff at Royal Sydney.

Primary Tour: US PGA Tour

Career wins: 3

Comment: A popular figure on the Australian golf scene, Smith is a strong supporter of the local tour as well as a fine player on the world stage, renowned for his wedge play in particular. Plainly is desperate to win his national Open and came very close three years ago when he made a playoff.
