Cameron Smith is at the Pinehurst Resort playing the US Open 2024. The event is one of the most serious and prestigious in the world, however, Smith saw it as the ideal scenario to wear an unusual outfit.

It is a shirt printed with a periodic table that, instead of chemical elements, refers to different alcoholic beverages. This original outfit was noticed by The Athletic's Brody Miller, who posted the following on his X account:

"Is Cam Smith wearing a periodic table of booze shirt?"

The image posted by Miller shows that Cameron Smith's shirt mimics the periodic table of the chemical elements designed by Dmitri Mendeleev in 1869. The peculiarity is that the acronyms refer to alcoholic beverages (W for whiskey, C for cognac, T for tequila, etc.) and not to the chemical elements.

As a general rule, golfers choose specific colors for their tournament outfits, depending on the day. There are several iconic examples, such as Tiger Woods' red and Rickie Fowler's orange, for playing on Sundays in both cases.

However, other players add original designs, as is the case of the shirt being worn by Cameron Smith during the third round of the 2024 US Open.
