Smith claims third Australian PGA Championship

Cameron Smith has won his third Australian PGA in five years joining some golfing greats to reach the feat.

Smith shot a closing round 68 and 14 under overall to win by three shots from West Australian Jason Scrivener.

Scrivener was in striking distance of victory but a double bogey on the penultimate hole cost him.

29-year-old Smith joins the likes of Kel Nagle, Peter Senior, Ossie Pickworth and Norman Van Nida to win the Joe Kirkwood Cup at least three times.

"I really didn't think I had it in me this week, to be honest." Smith said.

"The start of the week was really scratchy and the game just got better and better as the week went on - other than the front nine today."

It's the fifth win for the season for Smith who also claimed the Tournament of Champions, the Open Championship and also an event on the LIV Tour.

Another West Aussie Min Woo Lee finished tied fifth.
