TPC Sawgrass Removes Cameron Smith’s Parking Spot After LIV Golf Move

The inevitable news that Cameron Smith had moved on to the LIV Golf Invitational series finally came to light ahead of the Boston Invitational which was won by Dustin Johnson.

The collective sigh could be heard across the golfing world as the Champion Golfer of the Year, a player at the peak of his powers, apparently picked the bags of millions that LIV is offering on a PGA Tour legacy.

As with all other defectors, Smith has been suspended by the Tour and he will not be allowed to return as confirmed by Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan at the Tour Championship.

As reported by Golfweek, TPC Sawgrass wasted no time in removing Smith’s privileges from the famed site. In March, the 29-year-old beat Anirban Lahiri en route to winning the Players Championship.

Both of these players moved to LIV and TPC Sawgrass made their own change by removing Smith’s personal parking space and replacing it with a sign that read: “Tour players only”.

Unfortunately, photos of his winning moments were also removed from the walls of the clubhouse and a replica bag with his clubs was also removed from the pro shop.

Smith is set to become the latest player to be eradicated from the minds of golf fans who remain obsessed with the PGA Tour. Looks like the likes of Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka are now distant thoughts.

After winning the Claret Jug at St Andrews in July, Smith declined to comment on his future. When a player takes a defensive approach to such a question, it usually only means one thing.

He said goodbye to his place in the international team for the Presidents Cup, which was named today. Lahiri, Marc Leishman and Joaquin Niemann have also sealed their fates by joining Greg Norman’s controversial new tour.
