Cam Smith Wins LIV Golf Chicago

British open champion Cameron Smith claimed his first LIV Golf victory in only his second start on the lucrative Saudi Arabia backed circuit with a three shot triumph over Dustin Johnson and Peter Uihlein just outside Chicago.

Smith, one of 12 major Champions in the 48 player field at rich harvest farms, shot a three under par 69 in the final round of the 54 hole event to reach 13 under and secure the 4 million Dollar first prize.

The stage was set for a final-round duel between two of the world's best golfers as overnight leader Smith began the day two shots clear of playing partner Johnson 70, who fell three shots back after a bogey at the first hole.

Both players birdied the second hole but Smith bogeyed the fourth and sixth as Johnson got to within a stroke before the duo carded birdies at the par five seventh.
