AVONDALE, La. – Cameron Smith promised his girlfriend that he’d reduce his signature mullet off if he gained a PGA Tour occasion. He lied.
“I would have to apologize to my girlfriend, it’s not going away. I mean, I feel like it’s part of me now,” Smith mentioned Sunday at the Zurich Classic following his victory alongside Marc Leishman.
Smith leaned into the mullet this week at TPC Louisiana. He and Leishman went with “The Mullet Song” by Jay Powell as the crew’s first tee walk-up tune, and Leishman wore a mullet wig earlier than starting the duo’s third spherical on Saturday.
Following Smith and Leishman’s playoff victory over Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel – and contemplating how the New Orleans crowd took to Smith – it might be troublesome for the 27-year-old to comply with via on his promise to chop his mullet.
“He’s got a cult following now. You should hear the fans out there. They’re all over it. It’s awesome,” Leishman mentioned.
“It’s really cool. It gives the fans something to get behind. Lots of people love it and it’s good fun as well. It makes people laugh. I love it,” he mentioned.
