Week 2


PGA Tour – Sentry Tournament of Champions

Cameron Smith completed the final round with a 3-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for an 8-under 65 and a one-shot victory over Jon Rahm finishing at 34-under 258 top win the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Jumping 11 spots to a career best of World No.10 Smith becomes the 113th player to claim a Top-10 place in the OWGR since it was launched in 1986. He is the 9th Australian alongside, Stuart Appleby, Ian Baker-Finch, Rodger Davis, Jason Day, Steve Elkington, Greg Norman, Geoff Ogilvy and Adam Scott to achieve this status.

Smith picked up his second OWGR eligible PGA TOUR victory and became the sixth player to have won at both Hawaii stops on the PGA TOUR. He won the Sony Open in Honolulu two years ago in a playoff.

Rahm easily kept his No. 1 ranking and did little wrong in his return from the longest break of his professional career. He had a 20-foot birdie putt to tie for the lead on the 17th, his last good chance to catch Smith, that narrowly missed.

On the par-5 closing hole, Smith came up just short of the green. His putt from 90 feet slowed to a stop about 3 feet from the hole. That meant Rahm had no choice but to hole a 50-foot eagle putt from just off the green, and it just missed on the high side.
