Cameron Smith’s Player Triumph, Valspar Preview, Picks of the Week

Cameron Smith, after one of the weirdest golf weekends I can remember, won the Players Championship by a stroke over Anirban Lahiri. Despite finding the water on the 18th, Smith cut a spinny wedge from 54 yards at the strike range, forcing Lahiri to birdie. Lahiri’s birdie chip wasn’t meant to be, and Smith joined a long line of Aussies to win the PGA Tour’s biggest event.

The now sixth-ranked player in the game has put the golf world on notice and is sure to be one of the favorites in Augusta in less than a month.

He wasn’t the only one to gain a few fans on Monday though, as Lahiri was nothing short of class after failing. And, to take a small sting of the whole week, he earned over $2 million.
