“I obviously got off to a really hot start,” said Smith. “And it’s very easy to just keep going, getting on the front foot and maybe try to hit some shots that are a little bit too aggressive.

“But I just stayed patient and holed some really nice putts.”

The Australian has found success on the PGA Tour and is currently ranked third in the Official Rankings but he has yet to win a major.

“So I would say it’s going to be pretty brutal out there,” he said of Saturday.

“I think there’s going to be a few more gnarly pins, and I think being smart out there is definitely going to be the key to staying at the top of the leaderboard.”
