During a press-conference for this week's LIV Golf event in Chicago, Cam Smith was asked a rather awkward question concerning Rory McIlroy.
While Smith, the latest and possibility most lucrative member to join LIV Golf, brushed off the question, he, along with Matt Wolff and Phil Mickelson, could not help but laugh at the joke.
The question was posed by Akili Johnson, who runs the social media page DrunkByTheTurn.
"Cam, Akili Johnson, Drunk By The Turn," asked Johnson. "I just wanted to reflect on you being the 150th winner of the Open, and I know you had spoken about how many beers you could fit in the Claret Jug, I think it was two. I was just wondering how many of Rory McIlroy's tears were you able to fit in it after you won?"
"I'm not answering that," responded Smith, while he laughed off the crude question.

Johnson also posted a video of himself showing a photo on his phone to Cam Smith and Pat Perez on the course yesterday, which also got a chuckle out of the golfers, with Johnson claiming it was a meme slagging off McIlroy.
The picture shows Cameron Smith looking off into the distance with the caption, "Is that Rory over there bitching about something again?"

Johnson or DrunkByTheTurn, is clearly staunchly pro-LIV Golf, and is clapping back at McIlroy for the Northern Irishman's continued anti-LIV stance.
However, we doubt McIlroy will be too interested in taking part in a petty spat however over the question and the meme, as he currently focused on the Italian Open, which he leads by one stroke.
