What happened at the Australian PGA Championship?
Once again Cameron Smith demonstrated that he is one of the world’s most talented young golfers by becoming the first man since Robert Allenby in 2001 to successfully defend the Australian PGA Championship.
Smith held a three shot lead going into the final round but a determined performance from Marc Leishman made for a thrilling last day.
The returning champion struggled on the front nine, allowing his playing partner and compatriot to take a two-shot lead into the turn.
Smith persevered and plugged away at the World No. 21’s lead until he finally regained top spot thanks to a stunning chip to set up a tap-in birdie on 15.
He went on to close out victory at 16-under-par, two clear of Leishman.
