Cam Smith has kicked off his defence of his Open crown in Liverpool, with the Australian looking to hold onto the claret jug this week. 

Smith, 29, produced a stunning display last year to announce himself as one of the world’s best golfers, before sending shockwaves through the sport by joining Saudi-backed LIV Golf for $100million.

He has struggled to replicate the sensational form that saw him win last year, finishing 34th and 9th in the Masters and PGA Championship respectively, but enters in a buoyant mood after winning LIV Golf Invitational London earlier this month.
