Who Is Cameron Smith's Caddie?

Cameron Smith (opens in new tab) is a five-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 victories came at the 2020 Sony Open in Hawaii, 2022 Sentry Tournament of Championships, and the Players Championship in the same year.

A player that has also had some huge results in Majors like the Masters, Smith's caddie situation has occasionally changed over the years however right now it looks like one man has got the job permanently. 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 an Aussie and has worked as a caddie for over 20 years now. He has worked on the bags of Geoff Ogilvy, Matt Kuchar (opens in new tab), 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.

A golfer for most of his life, Sam started playing the game to prove he was the best player out of his father and two brothers.
He quickly became a golf equipment expert and has always been the one family and friends come to for buying advice, and spends a lot of his time putting golf gear, apparel and shoes to the test.  
He is a graduate of Swansea University where he studied History and American Studies, and he has been a part of the Golf Monthly team since February 2018. He also previously worked for World Soccer and Rugby World magazines.

A jack of all trades across print and digital formats, Sam now spends most of his time testing and looking after golf gear content for the website. He also oversees all Tour player content as well. 

Unfortunately, Sam is not a member of any club at the moment but regularly gets out on the golf course to keep up the facade of having a handicap of five.
