World No. 3 Cameron Smith wins third Australian PGA Championship to cap massive year

Three was the theme of the day for Cameron Smith on Sunday.

Playing in the Australian PGA Championship for the first time in three years, the World No. 3 entered the final round with a three-shot lead at Royal Queensland in his native Brisbane. The Aussie went on to shoot a final-round 3-under 68 to win the event for a third time, holding off Ryo Hisatsune and Jason Scrivener, who finished T-2 at 11 under, three shots back. Smith, 29, previously won the Australian PGA Championship in consecutive years in 2017 and 2018.

Smith started the year with a win at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in January via a playoff with Jon Rahm. He then went on to win the Players Championship in March and the Open Championship in July before joining LIV Golf in August. On the upstart circuit led by Greg Norman and backed by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, Smith made $7,378,500 over five events, including a win in his second start.
