As a part of Golf Australia's Give Back program, Queensland's Cameron Smith founded his own scholarship program in 2016, a year after he cracked the top five at the US Open and kick-started his professional career.

Cam was heavily involved in the QAS, Golf Queensland's and Golf Australia's High Performance programs as a promising amateur and was desperate to give back to the framework that helped him transition to a professional golfer.

Evolving over its first few years, the Cameron Smith Scholarship offers two athletes an invitation to Cameron’s home in Florida for a week of practice, training and living like a PGA Tour professional, a truly unforgettable experience.
