Australian golfer Cameron Smith is one of the prominent players on the PGA Tour. And he has always caught the attention of everyone with his mullet hairstyle. Moreover, just a month back ahead of the Tokyo Olympics 2020, Smith unveiled his unique hairstyle. When Smith made his debut on the PGA Tour, he had a normal haircut. But recently, for the last year or so, he has been rocking the mullet look.

According to Jason Sobel, Cameron Smith said that he isn’t going to cut off his mullet at the moment. “It’s like my good luck charm. I can’t cut it off at the minute. Maybe a couple bad months of golf, it will come off, but until then, it’s staying.”

Moreover, since he got this mullet, Smith has been playing some exceptional golf. He won the Zurich Classic 2021 in April with Marc Leishman. So, he doesn’t want to change his hairstyle and jinx his golf game. 

Currently, Cameron Smith is playing at the Northern Trust 2021 in Liberty National Golf Course. And going into the final round, he shares the lead with Jon Rahm. Smith had an exceptional moving day as he remained -11 for the day and jumped from -5 to -16. The Australian scored 11 birdies and remained bogey-free for the day.

Smith even had a chance of shooting 59 and needed a birdie on the final hole. But unfortunately, he couldn’t make the 12ft birdie putt and eventually tapped in for par. Now, going into the final round, he will hope for a similar round and prove to everyone that his mullet is a good luck charm for him.
