Cameron Smith says any news about his future on the PGA Tour or joining the LIV Golf Series will only come from him and he insisted he’s fully focused on the FedExCup Playoffs.

Smith was speaking ahead of the start of the FedExCup Playoffs and was asked directly about reports from The Telegraph stating that world No 2 had agreed to a deal in excess of $100m to sign with the LIV Golf Series

The reports came hours after Cameron Percy of Australia said in an interview that Smith and another fellow Australian, Marc Leishman, already have signed deals to exit the PGA Tour.

“If there’s something I need to say regarding the PGA Tour or LIV, it will come from Cameron Smith and not Cameron Percy,” Smith said.

“I’m a man of my word and whenever you guys need to know anything, it will be said by me.”

Smith’s plan is reportedly to finish out the PGA Tour season – where he has a real chance to win the FedEx Cup and the $18m prize that comes with it – before he joins LIV for its next tournament in Boston in early September.

When asked if he would give a direct ‘yes or no’ regarding the report that he has signed and is going, Smith remained closed.

“I have no comment to that. Like I said, I’m here to play the FedExCup Playoffs, that’s been my focus for the last week-and-a-half.

“That’s what I’m here to do, I’m here to win the FedExCup Playoffs. Like I said, it will come from me, it won’t come from Cameron Percy.”

LIV Golf declined to comment when contacted by Sky Sports News.

Smith continued on by confirming that it is his intention to play the Presidents Cup.

“It’s something that we’ve been looking forward to for the last three years. We missed a year because of Covid and it’s something that I look forward to being a part of.”
