16 October 2018 10:19 AM No average Joe: Cameron Smith on course for a sizzling summer

For someone with such an extraordinary talent on the golf course, Cameron Smith couldn't have more ordinary pursuits when he gets the rare chance to put down the clubs. He likes to wash his cars, he says, and has developed a liking to tend to his lawn in Jacksonville, Florida. The 25-year-old does hail from Brisbane, where you can literally watch the grass 6

17 September 2018 8:00 AM Short on star power, but Leishman defends World Cup of Golf field

Marc Leishman doesn't expect the fact not one player in the world's top 20 will travel for the World Cup of Golf to dimish the US$7 million tournament, which is likely to have his Australian pairing with Cameron Smith pegged as favourites. Leishman, the world No.22, is set to be the highest ranked player to contest the teams-based event at Melbourne's 14

"They didn't play golf, Hamish said he wasn't sure where they (West Coast) got that from." In contrast to Nisbett's comments, Angus pointed to his family being livid about the incident and hinted his family could take the matter further if the AFL Tribunal didn't come down hard on Gaff, who's out of contract at the end of 2018 and unlikely to play again 22

1 August 2018 11:30 AM 'Big unit' Jarrod Lyle always all class

The one abiding thought everyone in golf must have is that Jarrod Lyle was dealt a pretty lousy deck of cards to play. From Shepparton, his early skills saw him go to Melbourne to play pennant golf for Commonwealth but at only 17 he was diagnosed with leukaemia and spend months in a hospital before the doctors announced him free of the disease. It was then he began 28

The last time Matt Stieger went back to his family's farm in north-western NSW at Easter it rained. Since then, there's barely been a drop. In his own words, cattle on the Narrabri farm are "going down left, right and centre". This week, his father Andrew had hoped to join Stieger's friend and temporary caddy Braith Anasta for the million-dollar Fiji International 27

20 July 2018 6:00 AM Carnoustie harks back to age ruled by monster courses, not monster drives

The late Peter Thomson had a golfer’s eye for impending catastrophe. After the five-time British Open champion became a television commentator, he saw victory as nothing more than a flashing warning sign. When Greg Norman walked off a final green after yet another Australian title, arms aloft and wife in tow, grinning like a man who somehow knew he would 16

18 July 2018 10:18 AM Relaxed Australian Open champion Davis craving his major debut

In the middle of a dry British summer, Tiger Woods summed up Carnoustie best. Having had a couple of looks at the brown, almost dusty layout which will host The Open, golf's ultimate needle man quipped "the fairways are faster than the greens". The last time the Claret Jug was on offer at a course as rain-starved as this, Woods won back in 2006. He used his driver 22
