Local Lad, Cameron Smith, Earns PGATour Card

SCSB District Golf - Monday, June 22, 2015

Congratulations to Cameron Smith (a former Wantima Golf Club Junior and SC&SBDGA Representative) for his tied 4th-place finish in his first Major Championship in the 2015 US Open at Chambers Bay. With another steady round almost completed (3 birdies and 3 bogies), Smith sealed the result on the par-5 18th hole with a spectacular three wood from 240m to 10cm for a tap-in eagle!!
Smith was the only player in the event to score all four rounds at par or better and he tied with fellow Queenslander Adam Scott and earned himself $US407,037 to take his tally from 10 PGATour events to $US814,000. 

His top four finish at the US Open gives Smith a start at the 2016 Masters Tournament, 2016 US PGA Tour Card as well as earning enough points for US PGA Tour Special Temporary Membership Category for the remainder of the year and being ranked in the world's top 100.

The Sunshine Coast & South Burnett District Golf Association is very proud of Cameron's achievements and also pass on our congratulations to his dedicated family, coach and supporters.
