Smith is playing the Australian PGA Championship at Royal Queensland Golf Club this week.
This is the first time he has returned to Australia since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. This tournament is also being played for the first time in two years because of travel restrictions.
LIV Golf's marquee signing Smith, 29, joined the media on Tuesday sitting alongside the Claret Jug that he won at the 150th Open Championship at St. Andrews, pipping Rory McIlroy.
McIlroy was left in tears in the arms of Erica Stoll after that disappointment.
But back to Smith who revealed that he's cried a few times since being home as he reflected on the biggest achievement of his career to date.
He told the media:
Smith joined LIV Golf after the conclusion of the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup Playoffs. At the time, it was probably the worst kept secret in golf.
The Australian was clearly not impressed when he was asked about his future in his press conference immediately after victory at the home of golf.
One of the arguments as to why LIV players are paid so handsomely is because there was and is a massive risk about their future.
Will they be able to participate in the majors? Will LIV Golf get Official World Golf Ranking accreditation?
As for Smith, he said:
The good news for Smith is that he can earn world ranking points this week.
Unsurprisingly, Smith has been paired with Adam Scott.
Scott has also confirmed that Tiger's legendary caddie - Steve Williams - will be coming out of retirement to work together once again.
