Russell Knox continues to knock on the door for his first PGA TOUR title during the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.
Knox finished alone in third at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and made four of his five cuts to begin the season. That has him 20th in FedExCup standings. He had three top 10s last season and nearly broke through the glass ceiling when he lost in a playoff at The Honda Classic. He is developing the reputation of being a solid ball-striker, but possesses a flat stick that is average at best. Simply put, the weeks where he gets the putter to cooperate could be special.

Russell Knox blew up for a 6-over-par 37-39=76 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic.

The Scot enjoyed a third-place finish in Vegas on Sunday, so he made the cross-country trip in spot-on form, but today's walk around Seaside was humbling despite the fact that he split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation. Alas, he converted just once for birdie and that required his roll from just inside 26 feet to drop at the par-4 14th. Elsewhere, Knox squared a double bogey at the par-5 seventh, where he round water off the tee, and five bogeys coming home. That set included two three-jacks and another water ball. Today's aggregate is his highest on the PGA TOUR since a third-round 77 at Merion in the 2013 U.S. Open.

Russell Knox settled for a 1-under-par 38-32=70 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and finished alone in third at 16-under 268.

Knox had a chance to score his first PGA TOUR win on Sunday, but he stubbed his toe early. His front nine at TPC Summerlin featured an unlikely pitch-in birdie on the par-4 fourth hole, but also included two bogeys and a double bogey. He put it together on the back nine with four birdies and five pars. With the exception of his two-putt birdie at the par-5 16th, all of his birdies were from 11 feet or longer. Perhaps this will serve as a learning experience. There is little doubt that he will find himself in a similar position sooner rather than later.

Russell Knox conjured up a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open but lost his 36-hole lead.

Knox circled five birdies and settled for 13 pars at TPC Summerlin on Saturday. Three of those birdies fell from 10 feet or longer, holing out from the rough on the par-4 third from 40'3" for the loudest applause. He landed 14 GIR and gained 1.157 strokes tee-to-green and 1.210 strokes with the flat stick. His 15-under 198 trails Ben Martin by two strokes with 18 to play.

Russell Knox chased his opening 65 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's second round to post 10-under 134 and earn a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Knox opened with a 10-foot birdie conversion at the par-4 first hole, but dropped shots with bogeys at 2 and 3, the first a three-putt from 37'3". However, he righted the ship by playing out the string in bogey-free 5-under with five birdies. His longest of the round ranged 21'11" at the par-4 seventh hole. He walked off with a 13-footer at the last. The Scotsman has missed only six greens in regulation through 36 holes.

Russell Knox enjoyed a 6-under-par 30-35=65 for his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The Scot set the tone early for his experience today, dropping in a birdie from 22'8" at the par-4 10th hole to open his walk around TPC Summerlin. He picked off seven more birdies, four of which from 10-18 feet, and signed his card with a strokes gained: putting clip in the vicinity of 3.125. Knox went just 2-for-4 in scrambling with bogeys at Nos. 5 and 6, but he set the foundation for a fruitful week in Las Vegas.

Russell Knox quietly lit up Cherry Hills Country Club for a career-low, 8-under-par 32-30=62 in the final round of the BMW Championship.

Knox tied the competitive course record set by Morgan Hoffmann in the third round. The Scot began his day on the 10th hole, so he spun his masterpiece in relative anonymity. His eight birdies were offset by 10 pars in a blemish-free effort. While he also had a 19'6" birdie on the par-4 16th, he clearly saved his best for last. He ended his season with a 58'6" chip in from the rough on the par-4 ninth hole to conclude his tournament at 3-under 277.
Sep 7 - 6:34 PM

Russell Knox followed his opening, bogey-free 67 at the Deutsche Bank Championship with a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in today's second round to post 5-under 137, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Knox' lead will not hold, but that he rallied for a red number after opening with a double-bogey 6 at the 10th hole speaks to his grit. After landing his approach at the par 4 just 20'3" from the cup, he then needed four swipes with the flat stick to move on. Thereafter, he scored bogey-free, picking off three birdies along the way. Two of them ran longer than 10 feet, the highlight stretching 16'5" at the par-4 12th hole. He also poured in a par save from 10'11" at the par-4 sixth.
Aug 30 - 1:25 PM

Russell Knox spun a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

The Scot has been relatively quiet since a dynamic winter and early spring, but he's 46th in the FedExCup standings in his Playoffs debut. He tied for 38th at last week's Barclays. Today at TPC Boston, he striped 10 (of 14) fairways, but found only 11 greens in regulation. While cleaning up on the other seven holes, Knox manufactured four birdies and sits just two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Russell Knox followed his opening 67 at The Barclays with a 2-under-par 36-33=69, reaching the midpoint in 6-under 136, two strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Knox experienced an unusual day at Ridgewood Country Club today. After a three-putt double bogey at the par-5 third hole, he'd pour in an eagle from 19'8" at the drivable par-4 fifth to square his card. A pedestrian bogey at the par-4 ninth was the only diversion from par until he walked off with three consecutive birdies culminating with a 44-incher at the par-4 18th. Overall, he split 12 (of 14) fairways and ranked first in accuracy (23 of 28 fairways) when he signed his card.
Aug 22 - 5:14 PM

Russell Knox carded a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of The Barclays, finishing one stroke adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Knox is debuting in the FedExCup Playoffs as the 48-seed. He sports a number of skills that rank well above average on the PGA TOUR, so it's not a surprise to see him fare well on a track like Ridgewood Country Club that demands precision and touch. He striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation en route to five birdies. Three among that set ranged 13-18 feet, but the highlight disappeared for par from 24'8" at the par-4 seventh. Knox got up and down all six times, but three-putted the par-4 18th for bogey from just outside 39 feet.

The PGA Championship added one dozen golfers to its field this week via special exemptions.

Once the automatic qualifiers were added on Sunday, the PGA of America typically exempts all of the top 100 in the Official World Golf Ranking. With Russell Knox (99th) and Fabrizio Zanotti (100th) getting berths, the season's final major is scheduled to become the first to host all of the top 100 in a single tournament. Withdrawals have precluded it from occurring before. Next, the following just outside the top 100 were granted entry: Danny Willett (102nd); Kevin Chappell (104th); Jason Kokrak (107th); Alexander Levy (108th); Kiradech Aphibarnrat (114th); Robert Karlsson (115th); Hideto Tanihara (117th); Stewart Cink (149th). Finally, two more openings were filled by the first two alternates outside the top 70 on the special money list that concluded in Canada: Scott Brown (71st) and Cameron Tringale (73rd). The last two spots in the field at Valhalla are reserved for the winners in Akron and Reno. Jerry Kelly and Pat Perez are alternates No. 1 and 2, respectively, at the PGA.

Russell Knox fired a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to end his week at 3-over 287.

It's been a challenging week at Congressional Country Club, and the early returns of the finale point to another brutal test. Knox outpaced his three bogeys with five birdies, with a 13'10" effort on the par-3 seventh and a 20'7" birdie on the par-4 eighth serving as his highlights. Ball-striking was the key to his last lap, splitting 11 of 14 fairways and landing 14 GIR.
Jun 29 - 2:19 PM

Russell Knox is 2-under-par 73-67=140 through two rounds of the Quicken Loans National.

Knox hasn't made much noise since a T21 at Colonial five weeks ago. Granted, everyone is entitled to a slump, but he'd been consistently effective most of the season, climbing inside the top 20 in FedExCup points following his playoff loss at The Honda Classic. Currently 39th, he's four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead at Congressional. Today's round featured six birdies, including conversions from 20'11" at the par-3 13th hole and a pair just outside 12 feet thereafter.

Russell Knox crafted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of the Travelers Championship.

The Scot put on a ball-striking display today, missing only two (of 14) fairways and three greens in regulation. He went 16-for-17 inside 12 feet and his longest conversion dropped for par from 11'2" at the par-4 17th. Knox signed his card sitting four strokes off the clubhouse lead.
