After his win at the 150th Open Championship, Cameron Smith was asked about the LIV Golf Series and if he plans on making the move to the Saudi-backed, Greg Norman-led breakaway circuit.
His answer wasn’t exactly comforting to PGA Tour fans.
“I just won the British Open, and you’re asking about that?”
Well, rumors have continued to circulate around the 2022 Champion Golfer of the Year and we may now know for sure that he’s bag chasing.
Cameron Percy, an Australian golfer who just tied for eighth at the Wyndham Championship, did an interview with RSN Radio Australia and all but confirmed Smith and fellow Aussie Marc Leishman are already gone.

If they do in fact make the move, it’ll be interesting to see if they wait until after the Presidents Cup. Smith is No. 1 in the International Team standings while Leishman is 16th.
Both players would be ineligible for the team event if they left after the FedEx Cup playoffs.
