SOUTH OAKLEY, VICTORIA, Australia (Jan. 20, 2013) - - Queenslander Cameron Smith completed an extraordinary turnaround to win the Australian Men's Amateur Championship against Victorian Geoff Drakeford at Commonwealth Golf Club on Sunday.

Trailing 5-down to Commonwealth member Drakeford at various stages, Smith fought back to win his maiden Australian Amateur title with a 3&2 victory.

“I’m gobsmacked, I can’t even believe I came back from that,” Smith said.

“I played some good shots and put him under pressure and holed some putts. I thought if I could him get down the last hole I was in with a shot but turns out I got it done before that which was quite nice.”

“Mum was pretty stoked when I told her, she was just yelling and couldn’t get a word out,” Smith said.

Smith earns an exemption into the 2013 Emirates Australian Open with his victory.

"It's definitely a good start to 2013 and hopefully this form can carry through to the next few tournaments,"Smith added.
