Watch: Smith plays host to lucky QLDers


Queensland amateurs Jed Morgan and Louis Dobbelaar have benefited from generous donations from Australian PGA Tour star Cameron Smith – but it was a recent ‘money can’t buy’ trip to the World No. 31’s US base that the pair will never forget.

As a part of Golf Australia’s ‘Give Back’ program, 25-year-old Smith has followed in fellow Queenslander Karrie Webb’s footsteps with the Cameron Smith Scholarship.

Dobbelaar was the lucky recipient of the scholarship for the first two years, but it was Hatton Vale’s Morgan who received the $12,500 grant this year.

But the ultimate reward came earlier this month, when Morgan and Dobbelaar were invited to stay at Smith’s Florida residence and join the PGA Tour winner at TPC Sawgrass for a week of practice, play and learning.

Both Morgan and Dobbelaar will get the chance to put those lessons to the test next month, as they tee it up in the Isuzu Queensland Open.
