We’ve come to a point where a golfer must take an oath to shed blood on their mother’s grave while stabbing a Greg Norman voodoo doll in order for me to believe that any of these unscrupulous killers These all stay with the PGA Tour. My hopes weren’t high for Cameron Smith, the young Australian who just won the Open, as he answered a reporter’s question about his tour of Saudi Arabia following his big win by looked silly and said: “I just won the British Open and you. asking about that? I think that’s not very good. “
Cut after Norman, looked at the propeller, poured vodka into the glass, and nodded vigorously. If you believe Smith and fellow Shark Cameron Percy, not only the 28-year-old ranked 2nd golfer is gone, but so is Marc Leishman.
“[It’s] unfortunately, yes, they are gone,” Percy said in an interview on RSN Radio.
Oh, no, not Marc Leishman, What would we do without his illustrious six wins on the PGA Tour and a squishy frame? When I could talk about Leishman, Smith was in pain. Until he heralded this apparent tour change in St. Andrew’s, he’s one of the easiest golf stars to catch.
Smith has seven finishers in the top 10 this season with three wins, including the Players Championship and the Sentry Tournament of champions outside of the Open. Despite the defeat in June, missed opportunity at the US Open, the reason it was considered a disappointment was because he finished third at the Masters.
Depending on if (when) he makes the jump, one of the next tournaments is the FedEx Cup, in which LIV players are currently suing the PGA for the right to play in.
I’m not going to go into detail about the lawsuit because two groups of old, rich white guys bludgeoning each other with lawyers and squeaky rubber mallets make watching golf thrilling by comparison. (I read some of the back-and-forths, and the PGA is arguing about whether Davis Love III is eligible to do touring agentwhile Norman and Sergio Garcia try staged the dumbest seduction game imaginable. So it’s as stupid and tedious as it sounds.)
Even if the FedEx Cup isn’t a major tournament, it’s a popular tournament among golfers for the prize money and then fans for the course load. Without Smith, one of the season’s best players, the absence would be palpable. Yes, I have, am and will continue to, blame Smith for dripping blood is a deal breaker. However, it sucks; All the fun of a rising talent is snuffed out by a bunch of fat dudes in the ill-fated khakis.
Smith’s general aesthetic – softer facial hair and even thinner mullet – is not for me, but I’m not among the masses that find that side of him appealing. I never thought that hairstyle would reappear, save for a few Halloween parties, after Joe Dirt. Apparently, the joke has been lost in translation since 2001.
Cameron has an endearing bit of ignorance that David Spade was able to conjure up in the best movie (without Chris Farley) of his career. Smith’s aloofness makes the game look easy, which is always appealing in a sport as difficult as golf. That detachment’s perspective will now change for those turned off by the consumerist bloc of capitalism, which is touring Saudi Arabia.
As for LIV, they’ll have a no-principle golfer for every generation if Smith joins. Phil Mickelson appeals to the older crowd, who hate taxes almost as much as vaccines. Dustin Johnson is a model of 30 hedonists everywhere, take his winning wife out with Donald Trump so they can joke about her trumpet skills when she goes to the bathroom. And finally there’s Smith, the face of the young generation whose actions are never their fault because the avalanche they swam in is already upon them.
Aussie was pressed further about the Saudi Arabia tour following his Open win and said he has people worried about the business side of the game.
“I don’t know, man. My team around me worry about all that, I’m here to win golf tournaments. “
Great, so go all hate mail to your manager? It’s not your choice, is this just the world you live in? All right, buddy.
It’s rare for a golfer to meet someone you don’t want to beat with a tuna sandwich for three minutes chatting at a country club. I didn’t use wanted to put mayonnaise and sea chicken on Cameron Smith’s face. But I will if he ignores it.
