Cameron Smith: Of course it hurts, I was close to becoming number 1

Cameron Smith was close to becoming No. 1, but his decision to join LIV Golf spoiled all plans. The Australian is one of the most talented on the golf scene. However, he does not want to be swayed by such things and he will still wait for OWGR's moves.

'I've tried to take it not that badly, to be honest. I think when you rock up to a tournament, you know who you have to beat, whether there's a world ranking or not,' he said, as quoted by 'There's generally seven or eight guys that are in that field that you know are going to put up a pretty good fight.

For sure, it hurts. I feel as though I was really close to getting to No.1, and that was definitely something I wanted to tick off. But kind of the longer that this stuff goes on, I think the more obsolete those rankings become.

That's just the long and short of it, I think. Do we need them? It would be nice, but like I said, you know who you've got to beat when you get on the golf course.'

Cameron Smith and his leadership

Cameron Smith is by all accounts a real leader.

He took the leadership of the All-Australian Team. They will play at the LIV event in Adelaide in April. This is certainly a great thing and something he is not used to. 'I guess it's been an off-season for golf but kind of seemed like I was on the phone every day talking about something to do with the team, so it's been really exciting,' he said.

'It's for sure been a little bit different and something that I'm not really used to, but I feel as though the longer it progresses, the more I'm getting used to it. I can't wait for us to start up in Mexico. I think we'll have a great year, and for sure looking forward to that event in Adelaide. I think it'll be a ripping tournament.'
