Colt Knost spun a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the Hotel Fitness Championship to take a one-stroke lead into the final round at 15-under 201.
Knost picked off three birdies on his first eight holes at Sycamore Hills GC, then added an eagle on the par-5 12th hole to go with nine pars on his final 10 holes. This marks his third consecutive 67. His game has been strong all around this week, ranking T6 in driving accuracy, 12th in putting average and T19 in GIR. Should he hold on to win on Sunday, he would punch his ticket to the PGA TOUR for the 2014-15 season. Aug 30 - 4:30 PM

Colt Knost conjured a blemish-free 7-under-par 33-31=64 in the first round of the Rex Hospitals Open to share the lead with Carlos Ortiz.

Knost opened his day on the back nine at TPC Wakefield Plantation with two birdies and seven pars, then heated up on the front. He ended his round with five birdies on his final six holes, likely meaning dinner tasted pretty sweet on Thursday night. He entered the week 51st on the Tour money list, having made seven of eight cuts highlighted by a T13 in Mexico. He missed the cut in the HP Byron Nelson Championship on the PGA TOUR last week.

Colt Knost makes his first PGA TOUR start of the 2013-14 season at the HP Byron Nelson Championship on a sponsor exemption.

A classic tweener, Knost has made seven of his eight Tour cuts this season and is player that is frequently graduating to the PGA TOUR but never sticking. This will be his eighth consecutive trip to TPC Four Seasons, with his T21 last year easily the best. Given his Tour form, it's reasonable to expect him to tee it up in four rounds, but expectations should be otherwise tempered.

Colt Knost chalked up six points in his second round of the Reno-Tahoe Open to reach the halfway point with 18, four back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Ah, the beauty of the Modified Stableford scoring system. Knost carded a 1-under 71, but because he converted an eagle and three birdies against two bogeys and a double, he enters the weekend with a bigger smile on his face. The eagle dropped in at the par-5 13th hole. This is just his second cut made in his last nine starts.

Colt Knost tallied 12 points in his opening round of the Reno-Tahoe Open.

Knost has endured a terrible year. He's 8-for-23 with two top-60 finishes, so today's bogey-free loop around Montreux Golf and Country Club was an anomaly. He birdied two par 3s, two par 4s and two par 5s to conclude his round just three points off the clubhouse lead.

Colt Knost will make his first start in the AT&T National.

Knost needs a boost quickly, ranking 181st in the current FedExCup standings. Following a T21 at the Byron Nelson, he’s gone and tilt and missed his last three cuts. The most recent miss was at last week’s Travelers Championship, missing the cut by seven strokes. At 184th in driving distance, it’s unlikely he will be much of a match for the behemoth that is Congressional CC.

Colt Knost signed for a bogey-free, 2-under-par 34-34=68 following his opening round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

The product of nearby SMU called it quits from last week's PLAYERS prior to his second round due to back-related discomfort. He split 10 (of 14) fairways at TPC Four Seasons today and went 2-for-12 in birdie chances. However, his longest conversion of the day was a par save from 10'6" at the 12th hole. He's in dire need of a spark having cashed in just six of 14 starts this season with only one top 60 (T43, WM Phoenix Open).

Colt Knost withdrew from THE PLAYERS before his second round due to injuries to his neck and spine.

Knost was scheduled to go off the 10th tee at 7:36 a.m. ET. He opened with a 7-over-par 36-43=79. On his Twitter page, the big fella wrote: "Tried to give it a go this morning but couldn't. Hope to be ready for @hpbnc next week! Thanks to @theplayerschampionship for everything."

Colt Knost heads back to Harbour Town after a successful run in the 2012 RBC Heritage.

Knost threatened to pick up his first victory, leading at the 36-hole mark and in solo second entering the finale. A final-round 3-over-par 74 dropped him to third in what is tied for his best PGA TOUR finish in 100 starts.

Colt Knost is in the field for the Tampa Bay Championship.

Knost missed his cut in his only prior trip to Innisbrook Resort's Copperhead Course. His 2013 season includes four paychecks in seven appearances, but he's yet to crack the top 40 in any event. Last year he missed more cuts than he made, making his start to 2013 encouraging over the long haul.

Colt Knost limped in with a final-round 78 at last week's Farmers Insurance Open, but must put it behind him quickly as he readies for the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Knost was in position for a nice week at Torrey Pines, but his weekend struggles dropped him into a tie for 73rd. It was his second payday in three attempts this season, but he's yet to crack the top 60. This will mark his first trip to TPC Scottsdale.

For Colt Knost, 2012 on the PGA TOUR was a tale of two seasons.

Knost tied for third at the Mayakoba Golf Classic in February and had a shot to win the RBC Heritage in April before setting for another third. After that success, he would promptly fail to earn a check in 16 of his remaining 20 events. In the four tournaments where he cashed, he brought home two top 25s. He’s a good putter and very accurate off the tee, but at 189th in driving distance, he’s at a massive disadvantage. A course like Harbour Town is the perfect fit for Knost.

Colt Knost carded a 5-under-par 33-34=67 on the Palm Course in his opening round of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, finishing two strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Knost missed just one of 14 fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation en route to seven birdies today. He stumbled on his inward nine with consecutive bogeys at the par-5 14th hole and par-4 15th, but he converted his final two birdies at 17 and 18 to regain those strokes. He totaled 27 putts on the round.

Colt Knost fired a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, and heads to the final round at 12-under 201.

The theme for Knost this week has been eliminating mistakes, as he has played his last 48 holes without a blemish and has just two all week. During his bogey-free span, he's circled 11 birdies and an eagle. He has been quiet since his third-place finish at the RBC Heritage in April, making just two cuts in 16 appearances headed into this week. Giving him a boost this week is a flat stick that ranks him fifth in Strokes Gained-Putting.

Colt Knost turned in a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-33=67 in his second round of the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The big fella hit 15 greens at TPC Summerlin today and racked up four birdies, all from inside eight feet. His longest conversion of the day was a par save measuring 25'6" at the par-4 12th hole where he yanked his approach short and left of green that's protected by water all along the right side. At 7-under 135, he's seven strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
