Australian golf star Cameron Smith has claimed his first individual PGA Tour title after winning Hawaii’s Sony Open in a playoff.
The 26-year-old Queenslander defeated American Brendan Steele on the first playoff hole at rainswept Waialae Country Club after the pair finished regulation at 11-under 269.
Smith claims the $US1.18 million ($A2.2m) first prize, securing a second PGA Tour title after he won the 2017 Zurich Classic team event alongside Swede Jonas Blixt.

Smith got up-and-down from the greenside bunker on the 18th to force a playoff and set up the victory with a brilliant approach shot from off the fairyway on the playoff hole.
“It (an individual win) has been one I’ve wanted to tick off for a long time,” Smith.
“I’ve been out here for four or five years now and to say now I’ve been able to win an event for myself if quite good.”
