Starting to win. Really solid demeanour, repeatable action, great short game. Absolutely awesome pitches and touch.



I think he can be a top 20 player for years to come when he finds his last groove and settles in. I really like his game. I'd employ you guys to watch some highlights of his inside 80 yards shot this week in his win --- phenomenal.



Back to back Aus PGA Champ, good stuff!



What do you guys think of him?

    Love his swing. Love his short game even more. I agree with you, seems like he has the talent to win and win often.

    Impressive. Head to head with Leishman and he closed it out.

    He and Matthew Fitzpatrick have been in our basement all week playing video games and drinking Red Bull. I can’t get them out of there, they just stare blankly at me when I ask them to leave!



    No I really enjoy watching Cameron too. Looking forward to seeing where he goes.

    Cameron Smith is a real steady Eddy with an amazing short game.



    Hopefully he can get his 1st individual PGA Tour win in 2019.

    He was much more consistent than Leishman last week at the World Cup



    Dropped some shots early today, but ended very strong.



    Be great to see Smith get to that top 20 and into the top ten by end of 2019

    I think he clearly has the best chance to become the next Australian star of golf, given that all of the current ones are well into their careers and probably don't have a ton more wins in them (Scott, Leishman, Ogilvy, Baddelly, etc.).

    I quit watching after seeing his terrible start and Leishman's blazing front nine. I was quite suprised to see he came back and chased Leishman down to win this tournament again. Obviously has a lot of tenacity not to pack it in after the front nine.

    Silky smooth swing with an unreal short game. Fun to watch

    Guys like Cam will have the last laugh on us all. When he’s 45 yet looks 28 I don’t think he’ll mind much image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

    Jason Day says hi.



    But I take your point. I’m not sure how far Smith will go, but I suspect he may be close to his ceiling. Was ranked 33 before yesterday’s win. Not sure if the ranking goes up after yesterday.

    He's one of my favourite young guys on tour. Would like to see him get in the mix more often, and hopefully this win will do that for him. He definitely has the game to win a few times on the PGA tour.

    He is a top 50 in the world but that is it .
  • YuckYuck Fore! Members Posts: 2,455 ✭✭
    Cameron is up to 28th in the world now, so I do not think top 20 is a stretch.
