Cam Smith wins the $3.6M prize at The Players Championship


Cameron Smith sank 10 birdies to climb up the leaderboard in the final round of The Players Championship and win the tournament’s record prize total.

Smith, 28, earned his spot in the The Players Championship by winning two PGA Tour events — Zurich Classic of New Orleans and Sentry Tournament of Champions — in the last year, but neither of those compare to the $3.6 million check he won Monday.

Heading into the final round, Smith was two strokes off the lead with six golfers ahead of him on the leaderboard. He shot a 66 to vault ahead of the field, although he had to come up clutch and save bogey on the 18th hole after his second shot found the water.
