Cameron Smith Mullet

Golfer Cameron Smith started sporting a mullet in 2021, just in time for the year-delayed 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. He was one of the Australian players who represented his country in the men’s golf competition. He had “AUS,” the abbreivation for Australia in the Olympics, shaved into the side of his mullet.

“I mean, it’s the Olympics. It doesn’t happen too often,” Smith said ahead of the Olympics. “I thought I would give Australia a shoutout on the side of the melon. I thought about it for a few weeks beforehand and then I just said, ‘Stuff it, I’m going to do it,’ and I think it’s been received pretty good.”

When Smith teamed up with fellow Aussie Marc Leishman at the 2021 Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Leishman showed up on the first tee with a blonde wig to make light of Smith’s mullet. Their walk-up song was “The Mullet Song” by Jay Powell.

When he defended his title at the Sony Open in Hawaii in January 2021, Smith explained why he rocking a mullet.

“It just come around, I saw a few of the rugby league boys at home doing it,” he said. “It was a great time to do it during quarantine, just something fun. Make people have a laugh about it. I’ve just kind of kept it going. I’ve almost turned it into my good luck charm. It not bad. I think it needs a little bit of a trim at the front. I’d really like to go full business at the front and party at the back. But maybe within the next couple months, it might change up a little bit.”

Smith had promised to his girlfriend, Jordan Ontiveros, that he would get rid of the mullet if he won on the PGA Tour with it.

During the post-round interview session with the media at the Zurich Classic, Smith had to brush up his explanation that despite whatever promise he made his girlfriend, the mullet was staying.

“Before the tournament started, Cameron, you said that you had a deal with your girlfriend that when you won you would cut the mullet. What’s the status of the mullet?”

Smith: “I would have to apologize to my girlfriend, it’s not going away. I mean, it’s, I feel like it’s part of me now,” adding: “It’s really cool. It gives the fans something to get behind. Lots of people love it and it’s good fun as well. It makes people laugh. I love it.”
