Cameron Smith hits a fan with the club he is holding

Cammie Smith hit someone with his drive on the tennis court, but quickly pretended he’d ordered the person a new iPhone

Due to a persistent hip injury from his performance at the FedEx St. Jude Championship, Cameron Smith is not on the field this week in Delaware.

Even if his time in Memphis wasn’t fantastic, he more than made up for a misplaced tee shot that hit a fan on Saturday at TPC Southwind.

Blake Krassenstein’s thumb and the phone that he was holding were presumably struck by Smith’s drive on the seventh hole on Saturday. When Smith met Krassenstein at the spot of his shot, he not only had him sign his glove but also had him give him his phone number, which led to him buying him a brand-new iPhone.

The act went above and above what is customary on Tour in circumstances like this.

Smith moved up to No. 3 in the FedExCup rankings after finishing T13 at Memphis with a 9-under total for the week. Due to a persistent hip ailment, he withdrew from this week’s BMW Championship, but his agency announced on Monday that he intends to try to play in the season-ending Tour Championship the following week, for which he should easily qualify.

This season, Smith has now won three times on the Tour, including both the British Open and The Players Championship. His current position of No. 2 in the Official World Golf rankings is a career-high.

In recent weeks, Smith has also been connected to the LIV Golf Invitational Series. After the Tour season concludes, he will reportedly sign a $100 million contract to play for the contentious league financed by Saudi Arabia, though he has repeatedly declined to comment on those rumors.
