In this week’s golf podcast, Portugal Masters winner Jordan Smith joins host Josh Antmann, Michael McEwan and Elliott Heath to reflect on his record-breaking second DP World Tour win.

Smith produced an incredible final-round 63 after an eagle and six birdies to amass a 30-under total as he cruised to victory.

“It’s just mental, isn’t it,” he said. “Just to look at it and think I shot 30 under par for four rounds, four rounds before that, I don’t think I would have even come close.

“So it’s just crazy that I was able to do this and win the tournament, I couldn’t be happier.”

It ends what Smith admitted was a “frustrating” wait for his first win since the 2017 Porsche European Open.

“I’ve been wondering this myself for two years (what’s going on?),” he added. “I think last year, when I didn’t compete in the last event in Dubai, I knew I had to kick my back and make some changes.

“Obviously they’ve improved, so they’ve changed equipment, changed caddies, even changed clothes, although it doesn’t make a difference. I’ve made a few changes and they’ve all been really, really good. “

The victory propelled Smith into the top 10 of the DP World Tour rankings, with the Englishman crediting changes to his putting game with the key to his recent success.

“Definitely my putt (was different) last week,” he explained. “We made a quick change with that in France, the week of Roland-Garros, I took a putter and I was like, ‘I’m going to do some tests with the putter in this new claw grip during the off-season’. You know us golf freaks, we always like to tweak.

“I went to the green, tried it with my putting coach and put it all in and was like ‘let’s just give it a try’ and didn’t look back.

“You get into that kind of mindset when you’re on a putt and you’re like, ‘I’m going to punch this.’ It’s always nice to have, even on the 40 or 50 feet, you’re like “it might have a chance of getting in.”
