St Andrews win was 'overshadowed' ahead of switch to LIV Golf

    Cameron Smith has admitted "keyboard warriors" and a "frustrating" victory press conference about his future move to LIV Golf overshadowed his maiden major success at The Open.

    Smith will return as defending champion at Royal Liverpool this month, exclusively live on Sky Sports, having produced a stunning final-round 64 at St Andrews to claim a one-shot victory over Cameron Young in last year's contest.


    Rumours about the next wave of players set to join the Saudi-backed LIV circuit dominated the week, with Smith left unhappy when asked about his own golfing future immediately after his victory.


    "I suppose it was a little bit harder from then onwards, definitely whilst making the decision. Just some nasty stuff, I suppose, said by the keyboard warriors. I knew it was going to be tough, but I feel since I made the decision, I made the right one."

    Smith completed the PGA Tour season before later joining LIV Golf at the end of the FedExCup playoffs, the highest-ranked player to join the then-rival circuit, with the Australian winning the LIV Golf Chicago event in his second start.
