Masters looming, LIV Golf's Cameron Smith comes out SWINGING: "It's BS!"

Cameron Smith has come out swinging for the fences on the eve of the 2023 Masters and is determined to prove LIV Golf critics wrong. 

Smith is playing one final LIV Golf League in Orlando event before making the trip up Magnolia Lane to Augusta National. 

The Australian had a superb chance slipping on the green jacket 12 months ago when he was chasing Scottie Scheffler

Smith's tee shot at No. 12 disappeared into Rae's Creek and that was game over for the now 29-year-old.

Despite the disaster Smith went on to win his maiden major later that summer at the home of golf. 

In the immediate aftermath of his stunning victory at St. Andrews, Smith cut a frustrated figure as he fended off a question about LIV Golf. 

Was he going or not? "I think that's not good mate," an exasperated Smith said of the line of questioning. 

It was a sign of things to come and over the last year Smith and the rest of the LIV 'rebels' have swatted away questions about 'real golf'. 

LIV play 54-hole events shotgun style. Music blares out. LIV even have an open-air 'Birdie Shack' for those to enjoy some beverages and the action.

The whole concept is clearly aimed at a younger demographic. 

As for Smith, he is determined to prove critics wrong when he and 17 other LIV players arrive in Georgia.

Smith told the media:

"First and foremost for me, I'm trying to go there and play the best golf I can
"Is it important for LIV. It is important for us to go there and really show a high standard of golf, which we know we're all capable of.
"Most of us will get four cracks at it this year [in majors], and hopefully we can get a win out of it.
"Maybe we just show a really hearty effort. I think for us, internally, it's the right thing.
"There's a lot of chatter going around about 'these guys don't play real golf anymore'. I think it's BS to be honest and we just want to show people that."
