Cameron Smith is content with his choice to join LIV Golf but says one potential consequence remains a “heartbreaking” possibility.
The Open Championship winner says that he’d be devastated if Augusta National was to make a ruling that would prevent LIV Golf members from teeing it up at next year’s Masters.

The four majors are expected to review their eligibility criteria for 2023, and it’s unclear where LIV Golf players will stand.
As the winner of last year’s Open Championship, Smith has at least five years’ worth of exemptions at the three American majors, and can play at the Open until he’s 60.
