With his PLAYERS Championship win on Monday at TPC Sawgrass, Cameron Smith became the third player to win twice during the 2021-22 season, joining Hideki Matsuyama and Scottie Scheffler. Smith and Scheffler have registered both of their wins in this calendar year.
The Aussie made his seventh start of the season at THE PLAYERS. He’s now finished in the top 20 five times and made six cuts, although his one MC came the week after he won the Tournament of Champions.
The 28-year-old has now won four times on TOUR since the start of 2020. He won the Sony Open that year in January, before winning the Zurich Classic with Marc Leishman in April 2021.
Although there are a few noteworthy events on the PGA TOUR calendar before the Masters, Augusta is officially on everyone’s radar. And Smith might just have value this year.
Smith has made five starts at the Masters, and he’s made all five cuts with impressive results. He went T55 in 2016, then T5, T51, T2 and T10 from ’18-21.
Having already put $3.6 million in the bank after THE PLAYERS, which is the largest winner’s purse of the PGA TOUR season, Smith will no doubt fancy his chances at Augusta National.
Smith entered the week at TPC Sawgrass ranked No. 10 in the Official World Golf Ranking and moves up to sixth with this win. He’s eighth on the board for the Masters at BetMGM.
At BetMGM, Smith is still 40-1 for the three majors after the Masters: the PGA Championship, US Open and Open Championship.
