Cameron Smith's last worldwide win came at the LIV Golf Series stop in Chicago, his second Saudi-circuit start. Before that, it was the 150th Open at St. Andrews.
Now, he's in position to add to a career year.
Smith leads the Fortinet Australian PGA Championship by three shots with 18 holes to play at Royal Queensland GC in Brisbane, Australia. After using a Friday 65 to vault up the leaderboard, the Aussie fired a Saturday 2-under 69 to separate from the field.
It was an up-and-down day for world No. 3, cashing in six birdies while also adding four squares to the card.
If he wins Sunday, it'll be his fourth DP World Tour victory.
His closest chasers are Yan Wei Liu and Masahiro Kawamura who both sit at 8 under, three back. A group of four players, including Min Woo Lee, are 7 under, four back.
