Cameron Smith (Australia)’s ‘Great Victory’.
He added 3 under par in the final 3rd round of Bedminster (total prize money of $25 million) at the 11th competition of the LIV Golf 2023 season, which ended on the 13th (local time) at the Trump National Golf Club (par 71, 7562 yards) in Bedminster, New Jersey, USA. He won the championship by another car (12 under par, 201 strokes). It is the 2nd win of the season and the 3rd overall since the London tournament last month, and the prize money is 4 million dollars. Smith also won the team event and hit the jackpot of 4.75 million dollars (approximately 6.3 billion won) in this tournament.
Smith started with a 4 stroke lead and tied 5 birdies and 2 bogies. He started uneasy with a bogey on holes 1 and 3, but changed the mood with a birdie on hole 6 (par 4), and ran away from the pursuit of his competitors with three consecutive birdies on holes 8 and 10. Smith celebrated his victory by reducing another stroke on the 15th hole (par 5). Smith is a player who has won 6 wins on the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour and 4 wins on the DP World Tour (formerly the European Tour). He moved to LIV Golf after winning the Open in the major tournament last year.
Anirvan Lahiri (India) took 2nd place (5 under par 208 strokes), Patrick Reed (USA) 4th place (4 under par 209 strokes), and Brandon Grace (South Africa) took 6th place (3 under par 210 strokes). Phil Mickelson (USA), who recently claimed to have wasted 100 million dollars (approximately 130 billion won) in gambling, fell to 10th place (1 under par, 212 strokes) with a 4-over par.
