We get to know the Australian who carries the bag of Cameron Smith

Who Is Cameron Smith’s Caddie?

Cameron Smith is a three-time winner on the PGA Tour, two of which have come at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. He has won once with Jonas blixt and once with fellow Australian Marc Leishman.

His other PGA Tour victory came at the 2020 Sony Open in Hawaii.

A player that has also had some huge results in big tournaments like the Masters, Smith’s caddie situation has occasionally changed over the years however right now it looks like his regular bagman has come back into the team.

Who is he? Let’s take a look.

At the 2020 Masters, an event Smith nearly won thanks to four rounds in the 60’s, Smith had Matthew Tritton on the bag.

But he was not the permanent bagman it seems as Sam Pinfold took up the job.

Pinfold is very good friends with Matt Kelly and Joe Skovron, the caddies for Marc Leishman and Rickie Fowler respectively.

Pinfold learned to play golf at Whitby Golf Club and went on to play most of his golf at Manor Park representing the club in the Duncan Cup competition. He also represented Wellington at Junior level but by the age of 22, he knew he wasn’t going to be a professional.

Therefore he moved across to the Gold Coast and took up a golf position at Royal Pines. There he worked for 18-months before he started caddying for Brad Iles when he competed on the Nationwide Tour in 2007.

Pinfold acknowledged it was supposed to be a temporary job and a bit of fun but it turned into a long term thing as he went to work with other professionals like Brendan Steele and Ryo Ishikawa.

Eventually, he met Cameron Smith at the New Zealand Open and when Pinfold’s player missed the cut, Smith asked Pinfold to work with him over the weekend.

Pinfold said; “The next day he went out and hit all 18-greens and shot 66 and played solidly on the Sunday for a strong ‘Top 10’ performance for the 20-year old golfer and our player-caddy relationship was established. His plans were to head to the USA and play his way onto the PGA Tour, so we agreed to link up when we could.”

In July 2015 Pinfold got the call to come and partner up with Smith and this continues today.

It was a surprise when this situation changed as Smith acquired the services of Tritton (pictured below) in the run-up to the 2020 Masters tournament.

Tritton is also an Aussie and has worked as a caddie for roughly 20 years now. He has worked on the bags of Geoff Ogilvy, Matt Kuchar, Peter Lonard, Michael Sim, Robert Allenby and Cameron Tringale in the past.

In fact, he cites the first PGA Tour victory he had with Kuchar as his greatest sporting memory as a caddie.

However, as we mentioned, this was not a permanent partnership.
