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.
Smith attended a PGA tour press conference for the FedEx Cup Playoffs in Memphis Tuesday, Smith was grilled about the reports of his rumored deal with LIV golf.
The Australian golfer declined to comment on the deal while reporters continued to pepper him with questions about it.
