The PGA Tour's Hawaiian stretch continues with this week's Sony Open at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu and defending champion Cameron Smith is rocking an interesting hairstyle.
Last year, Australian Smith beat Brendan Steele in a play-off to claim his second PGA Tour title and the 27-year-old is looking forward to defending his title and considers his mullet a "good luck charm".

"It just come around, I saw a few of the rugby league boys at home doing it," said Smith. "It was a great time to do it during quarantine, just something fun. Make people have a laugh about it.
"I've just kind of kept it going. I've almost turned it into my good luck charm. It's not bad. I think it needs a little bit of a trim at the front. I'd really like to go full business at the front and party at the back. But maybe within the next couple months, it might change up a little bit."
Asked whether he felt any differently coming to Waialae as the defending champion, Smith made it clear that's not something that plays on his mind.
"No, not really, mate, to be honest. I'm pretty crazy. I don't really like to get into that stuff. I mean, defending champion, I'm sure I'll be in a decent group on Thursday and Friday, so maybe a little bit more pressure there.
"But no, I'm looking forward to Thursday. I feel as though I've come off a pretty solid week last week. Felt as though I played better than what my score resulted in.
"So looking forward to the week. I love the place. I love the golf course. So yeah, hopefully give it a good defend."
Smith's mullet went down surprising well with golf fans (I can't say I'm a huge fan of the look, nor was I when Rickie Fowler was rocking one too), so check out some of the reactions below.

That’s a definite throwback style. The mullet and mustache combo reminds me of say 1987 - 1991 timeframe? Sweet memories, good times— Chad (@cdrgoose) January 13, 2021
Reminds me of my hairstyle as a varsity student back in 1988. Good one Cameron! Looks very cool.— Grant Stevenson (@GrantGhs) January 13, 2021
