The 24-year-old claimed his first European Tour victory by taking the Australian PGA at Royal Pines last Sunday and is now ranked 61st in the world.
The Australian ace is currently in a rich vein of form, having finished in a share of fifth at the CIMB Classic and then taking third at the CJ Cup.
A fourth place at the Australian Open followed before last weekend's success and big things are expected of the Brisbane-born youngster.
Smith has made one appearance at Augusta to date, ending up in a tie for 55th in 2016, and he appears confident of being able to move up the standings enough to have another crack at Masters glory next April.
"It’d be nice to get inside the top 50 for a Masters start in April," he said. "If I get off to a decent enough start with my two events in Hawaii next month plus the (US) west coast swing at two of my favourite courses at Torrey Pines and Riviera I should be able to tick that one off.
"That’s been driving me the whole year because Augusta is the best place in the world."
