45 COVER STORY SMITH’S CUP BOOST The highest ranked Aussie in the Open field, Cameron Smith, stormed into a top-10 finish on the back of a final round six under 66. The Queenslander was never really in contention after opening with a two over 74. But he improved with each round, climbing the leaderboard gradually and will now take a “little boost” of confidence into this week’s World Cup of Golf alongside Marc Leishman. “I think I’ve done everything pretty good all week really, but just kind of struggled with the momentum side of things,” he said. “I would play a few good holes and then rack up a bogey or double or something like that. “Just kept those away today, played a little bit smarter to the centres of the green when we didn’t have such a good number or a bit of an awkward wind or something like that. “I wouldn’t say my confidence was lacking. I felt confident in my game all week and it was just nice to kind of put everything together, just that little boost before the World Cup.” SNEDEKER’S OPEN SOLUTION Visiting American star Brandt Snedeker believes the Australian Open can regain some of its past glory as part of a high-quality ‘Aussie swing’ of tournaments. Speaking on Macquarie Sports Radio after the third round, the nine-time PGA Tour winner was asked what he would do attract more highly ranked players to Australia for the national championship. “When you find the right date with the right sponsor, somebody that shares your vision for a championship all of a sudden the cards start falling into place,” the 37-year-old said. “There needs to be an Aussie swing, you need to have three or four tournaments in a row that are all high quality ... because it’s so far to come for just one week.”
