Cam Smith is still playing during the PGA tour during Fed Ex Cup playoffs but there are rumors that he’s leaving for LIV golf.
According to the Telegraph, Smith has signed a huge $100 million deal to play for the Saudi-backed golf league and will play at their event in Boston later this year.
Cameron Smith, the Open champion, has signed a $100million-plus deal to join LIV Golf in a major coup for the Saudi-backed rebel series.
Telegraph Sport understands the Australian – who declined to comment on a potential deal immediately after his dramatic win at St Andrews – will now play at LIV’s upcoming event in Boston. While Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka were also seen as major coups, the signing of Smith is seen as arguably more significant given he is currently World Number 2.
During a press conference for the FedEx St. Jude Championship, Smith was asked about the rumors which he immediately shot down.
Cameron Smith on the report that he’s already signed with LIV Golf and will start playing there next month: “My goal here is to win the FedEx Cup playoffs. That’s all I’m here for. I have no comment on that.”
