AmericaGolfer Cameron Smith on April 15 scored nine birdies, thus keeping the top of the table 18 holes at -9, a day after removing the stick at the RBC Heritage.
The PGA Tour event in South Carolina took place on the Harbor Town Golf Links, par71 with a prize fund of 7.1 million USD. Yesterday, Smith finished the opening round of 62 strokes with a no-bogey scoreboard. This match, the Australian player reached 315.4 yards in two holes, the average distance recorded by the PGA Tour, hit 10 of the 14 fairways, and went to the standard green (GIR) of 13 holes.
The day before, he replaced the trial ring with a session of fishing in the lakes and creeks of the field.
“I caught about 45 minutes, then the yard guard stopped. I loved this game, but when he told me, I’d better stop,” Smith said. During the whole fishing session, he was not allowed to fish, in some places there were oysters and scallops. “If only there were live bait,” Smith muttered.
On the opening day of the RBC Heritage 2021, Smith stood out with three birdies in the last four holes.
After his second shot in the 15 par5, he was 34 yards from target but after the chip – the third left 0.9 meters and then a putt done – the fourth.
Into the par4 16 hole, Smith slipped the fairway, failed to reach the GIR, but still kept par thanks to the bounce on the green, 1.8 meters away.
In hole 17 par3, golfer born in 1993 hit the bunker in front of the green. 12.5 meters away, the ball floats on the trap floor and the green is clear in the direction of hitting, Smith boldly down the club and the ball straight into the hole after escaping.
This Birdie helped Smith reach the top of the group (-8) as veteran contender Stewart Cink finished the round two hours earlier.
At hole 18 par4, Smith played with wooden stick number 3 down the middle of the fairway, from there used iron number 9 on the green and then birdie with a strike of 1.2 meters. Finished the last post, Smith monopolized the first place and led Cink a stick. After Cink is T3 (score -6) including Matt Wallace and Collin Morikawa, who won the major PGA Championship 2020.
As the number one golfer in the world, Dustin Johnson is the most valuable candidate in the tournament. But with 70 sticks yesterday, he stood T46. Meanwhile, Webb Simpson in the group T67 (even par) by 71 strokes in the opening match to defend the title. The previous year, Simpson won at -22, earning $ 1,278 million.
Smith has won two PGA Tour titles, doubles the European Tour trophy in seven years of professional play. At the major Masters last year, Smith returned to T2 and Johnson was crowned. At that time, Smith was the first player under 70 strokes all four rounds in Masters history since 1934. This year, Smith returned to T10 while Johnson was eliminated.
