Barty backing Cameron Smith to lift Claret Jug

For the second consecutive day, Barty and her PGA of Australia golf trainee fiancé, Garry Kissick, joined Smith to watch his final practice round before he leads the Aussie charge at the 150th Open Championship.

Fellow Australian big guns Adam Scott and Marc Leishman, who was runner-up in a play-off the last time the Open was held at St. Andrews in 2015, also joined the group and posed for photos with Barty on the course’s iconic Swilcan Bridge.

Asked if Smith could become Australia’s first Open champion since Greg Norman at Royal St George’s in 1993, Barty beamed: “Of course he can”.

The retired Wimbledon and Australian Open champion is more than an avid golfer, playing off a four- handicap two years after winning the women’s A grade club championship at Brisbane’s Brookwater Golf Club while taking a break from tennis during COVID-19.
