Golf world reacts to Cam Smith’s surprising decision

At this point, the golf world awaits the official announcement that 2022 British Open champion Cameron Smith is leaving the PGA Tour for Saudi-backed LIV Golf.

While that badly kept secret is still out, there is some news about Smith joining the upcoming BMW Championship that golf fans are paying attention to.

3 in the FedExCup standings this week, has pulled out of the BMW Championship in Wilmington, Delaware, this week.

"Unfortunately, Cam will be unable to compete at the BMW Championship this week in Wilmington, DE," read a statement from Bud Martin, who represents Smith.

“He has been battling some discomfort in the top and outside of his hip for several months and he thought it best to rest this week in pursuit of the FedEx Cup.”

While this may indeed be true, the timing of Smith's return certainly caught the attention of the golf world. Smith has been rumored to move to LIV Golf since early August.

The Telegraph of London has reported that Smith will be joining LIV Golf with a guaranteed contract worth more than $100 million.
