Cameron Smith has been forced to withdraw from LIV Golf Miami ahead of the second round due to illness. 

Smith, 30, carded a dismal 3-over 75 in the first round on Friday.

His exact illness has not been specified. 

"Get well soon Cam," Ripper GC posted on their social media channels. 



Smith's decision to bow out of LIV Golf's fifth event of the season comes on the eve of The Masters from 11-14 April.

The 150th Open champion has enjoyed some solid performances at Augusta down the years most notably a T2 in 2020 and T3 in 2022.

The Australian has four top-10 finishes at The Masters in seven appearances. 

Smith is the captain of Ripper GC on LIV Golf.

He has got Ben Campbell to replace him in the team for the remaining two rounds. 

Smith has yet to win on LIV Golf this season but he did finish third in Hong Kong last time out. 

Sergio Garcia and Talor Gooch are both in contention heading into the second round at LIV Golf Miami.
