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.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
