24 hours after winning The Open, Cameron Smith is rumored to be leaving the PGA Tour for LIV Golf
Not even 24 hours after winning The Open, it is now rumored that Cameron Smith could be defecting from the PGA Tour and joining the LIV Golf League.
Cameron Smith rumored to be leaving the PGA Tour
According to Reuters, which I guess is credible enough, Cameron Smith and Ryder Cup captain Henrik Stenson will be the next two dominoes to fall for LIV Golf.
Even yesterday after winning The Open, Smith was asked about joining LIV Golf League.
At the time, I thought it was a ridiculous question to ask Smith, after he literally just won The Open and had a million things going through his head. Smith’s answer of “I don’t know, mate” made sense at the time but it was noted that he did not turn down the reports of him actually leaving the PGA Tour for LIV.
Given all the news about it, there is some serious concern that Smith could be leaving, which would be a monumental blow to the PGA Tour. Smith is currently ranked No. 2 in the world and talent wise, would be the biggest pull for LIV Golf to date. On top of that, we could have Stenson leaving as well, which means that the Ryder Cup team will need a new captain.
The next LIV Golf event is scheduled for later this month in New Jersey, so it looks like we’ll have our answer sooner than later.
DON’T DO IT CAM SMITH. YOU ARE THE CHOSEN ONE. STAY ON THE PGA TOUR.
