Reigning PLAYERS Champion Cameron Smith has been banned from defending his 2022 title, thus making the event unworthy of ever being a major. However, the good-natured Aussie, who lives at TPC Sawgrass, says he might just show up, and “walk around the crowd” as a fan.
During an interview, Smith was asked what he’d be doing during the week of the PLAYERS Championship.
Smith replied, “Yeah like I said, I’m a little bit unsure, you know.
“That’s where I live now so I don’t know. I’ll definitely be watching on TV. I think it’s a great event to watch.
“I grew up my whole childhood watching – watching the event and yeah I’d love to get out there.
“I don’t know how it would be kind of received. But even getting out there and watching, walking around in the crowd, might be pretty funny.”
