Fisherman gets chased off Harbour Town, then shoots 62 to lead RBC Heritage
Cameron Smith could relax in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina this week, but that doesn't mean he can't win the tournament too.
After a big week under pressure in the demanding Augusta National, Smith opened the RBC Heritage with a career best on Thursday in Harbor Town (9: 62). The Aussie, who rifled through a bunker shot on par 17 and then nearly pierced himself for the eagle, leads Stewart Cink with one shot.
"I feel like hacking around here has been a breeze after last week," said Smith, one of the tour's top chippers. “I was so scared almost every chip shot last week and I feel like I can be really aggressive here.
“I don't know, I just feel very good. Mentally, I feel very free out there. I feel like I can hit the shot that I need to hit and go ahead and try to execute it. I just feel like every shot I hit is 100 percent used, and on a day like today it's really rewarding. "

The only thing Smith hasn't managed so far this week is that he hasn't landed a fish. The tour's social media team followed Smith on Wednesday as he grabbed his fishing rod and drove through Harbor Town, which borders Baynard Cove, to catch something.
He was out of luck - and then was chased away.
"We were out there for about 45 minutes and then security came out and came with us," said Smith. “I tried my best to stay out there. I am addicted to fish. But I just thought it was best to just go. "
