Cameron Smith likely to cause a stir with latest LIV claim: “I know I’m biased”

Cameron Smith won the historic 150th Open Championship, but he still says LIV Golf Adelaide was the best tournament he has ever participated in.

According to Cameron Smith, he had the best tournament experience of his life at LIV Golf Adelaide.

Smith announced as much to a gathering of reporters following his Ripper team’s victory Down Under at The Grange Golf Club on Sunday.

Extra holes were necessary for the all-Australian team of Smith, Marc Leishman, Lucas Herbert, and Matt Jones to win their second team title on the breakaway tour.

As the first-ever team playoff, it was actually an exciting conclusion.

Watching Smith and Leishman defeat Louis Oosthuizen and Dean Burmester in front of thousands of fans lining the fairways was a sight.

After taking center stage for a week, Smith had the chance to sink the winning putt.

During his week, he also struck an onlooker with an incorrect shot, evoking the most fitting reaction.

When Smith made the switch to LIV Golf in 2022, a reporter asked him if this was what he had in mind.

Smith reportedly demanded a $150 million payment from the breakaway in exchange for a three-year contract.

“I never imagined this week would be this good,” he remarked.

“I believe that I have always known in my heart that Australia would truly embrace LIV because of its culture, music, entertainment, and overall surrounds.”

He went on: “The last couple of years have been just insane, and I always felt like this was the place where it was going to make it big.”

“I’m biased, but this is the best tournament I’ve ever played,” I said last year. I believe it has happened once more this year.”

Smith’s remarks will probably cause some controversy because he won the historic 150th Open Championship at St Andrews.

That Sunday, the Australian ripped through the home of golf, winning his first major and crushing Rory McIlroy’s heart.

Additionally, Smith has triumphed in the Players Championship on the PGA Tour, which is unofficially referred to as the “fifth major” in golf.

Although Smith was pleased with the outcome of LIV Golf Adelaide, the second day of the competition was ruined when Herbert’s caddie was hit in the head by a bottle of water.

Nick Pugh was hit by the missile on the boisterous “watering hole,” and he instantly fell to the ground.

The inebriated scenes brought back memories of the Waste Management Phoenix Open on the PGA Tour, where the tournament organizers faced harsh criticism earlier in the year.

It won’t be too long before Smith returns to action for LIV fans.

He will start the tournament in Singapore from May 3–5 at Sentosa Golf Club in the breakaway.
