In addition to losing his TPC Sawgrass parking place, Cameron Smith is one of an Increasing number of golfers who have been expelled from the PGA Tour after signing with LIV.
In March, Smith won The Players Championship. You receive a year's worth of parking at TPC Sawgrass as one of the benefits of winning that significant competition.
Golfweek's Adam Schupak published a picture showing the designated parking space that Smith was still using at the course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, as of the previous week.
Before Smith agreed toasumoured $100 million contract with LIV, that space was already there. The original sign has subsequently been changed to one that simply states,
"Tour players only." Schupak received confirmation from Derek Sprague, general manager of TPC Sawgrass, that Smith has forfeited the right.
The Players winner's nation's flag is also customarily flown at TPC Sawgrass. As of this. week, the Australian flag was still flown in smith's honour.
Schupak reports that Smith's winning clubs and pictures, along with a replica bag, were taken from the clubhouse.
The fact that Smith practices frequently at TPC Sawgrass and lives close by makes the scenario much more intriguing. It's uncertain whether that will carry on.
