Description:
Christopher McClain Smith (born April 15, 1969) is an American professional golfer who currently plays on the Nationwide Tour.

Smith was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. He attended Ohio State University, where he was a four-time All-Conference selection in the Big Ten from 1988 to 1991, and an All-America selection as a senior. He was also the Big Ten individual champion as a senior. Smith won the Indiana State Amateur Championship in 1990. He was inducted into the Ohio State Varsity O Hall of Fame in 2000.

In 1997, Smith became the first-ever golfer on the Nike Tour (now known as the Nationwide Tour) to immediately move up to the PGA Tour by way of the "battlefield promotion", which is awarded to a player who wins three tournaments in one Nationwide Tour season. In 1997 he was named the Nationwide Tour Player of the Year and also led the money list.

Smith has won one tournament on the PGA Tour, the 2002 Buick Classic.

On June 21, 2009, Smith's wife was killed in an automobile accident. His two children were also critically injured.
