Recap: Smith's 2017 victory

Report and highlights from Cameron Smith's victory at the 2017 Australian PGA Championship.

Smith has registered eight worldwide top-10s in 2018 and reached the PGA Tour's season-ending Tour Championship for the first time, as well as finishing tied-second as part of Team Australia at the World Cup of Golf last week.

The world No 33 defeated Jordan Zunic in a play-off to win this event at RACV Royal Pines in 2017, with Smith confident of continuing his run of form and pushing up the world rankings.

"My next goal for myself is to make myself a top 20 player in the world," Smith told the media on Tuesday. "I've made myself a top 50 player in the world, which was the goal for the last couple years and finally got that done earlier this year.

"Obviously, getting that far up is a really big step and something that I want to do, but definitely not a time frame thing. I'm just trying to make myself better every day."
