Melbourne Storm recognise 150th Open Champion Cameron Smith by naming stand in his honour

And it’s worth noting the Storm did this 12 hours before Cameron shot 5 birdies in a row to start the Back Nine at the Old Course, because everyone at the Storm knew first hand that a Queenslander named Cameron Smith is bound to be a bona fide winner, and would absolutely rebound from Saturday by shooting 64 in the final round:

Now, to end all debate about which Cameron Smith this stand was named in honour of, let’s compare the pair using this table I’ve assembled:

Bad Cameron Smith, a future Rugby League IMMORTAL described by the people of New South Wales for 18 years as the hypothetical baby of Satan and Margaret Thatcher:

And Good Cameron Smith, the first long-haired blonde man from Queensland to win the Open Championship since Greg Norman in 1993, who just happened to be the last Australian to win the Open Championship:
