Cameron Smith Speechless After First Win. Literally.

After Cameron Smith dropped a two-foot putt on the 4th playoff hole to win the Zurich Classic – his first ever PGA Tour event, the 23-year-old from Australia was speechless.

Literally.

His partner, 34-year-old Jonas Blixt, had to do all the talking in a post-round chat with the Golf Channel – even answering questions directed at Smith.

Smith’s win was something of a life changer for the young Aussie. It paid out over $1M and, more importantly, it comes with a two year PGA Tour exemption and invites to all the big events. So who can blame him for being emotional.
