The PGA Tour’s flagship FedEx Cup Playoffs kick off this week in Memphis, but once again the upstart Saudi-backed LIV Golf tour is casting its shadow over the proceedings. This time, the focus is Cameron Smith.
The 28-year-old Australian star made a name for himself this year with wins at the Players Championship and, most recently, the Open Championship at storied St. Andrews, the first major win of his career.
“My goal here is to win the FedExCup Playoffs. That’s all I’m here for,” Smith said, before taking a shot at Percy. “If there’s something I need to say regarding the PGA Tour or LIV, it will come from Cameron Smith, not Cameron Percy. I’m a man of my word and whenever you guys need to know anything, it’ll be said by me.”
“I have no comment to that. Like I said, I’m here to play the FedExCup Playoffs. That’s been my focus the last week and a half, that’s what I’m here to do, I’m here to win the FedExCup Playoffs. And like I said, it will come from me, it won’t come from Cameron Percy.”
