Making his 21st start of the season and fifth appearance at the Travelers Championship, Russell Knox erased a three-shot deficit with a final-round 2-under-par 34-34=68, claiming the victory with a 72-hole aggregate of 14-under 266, one shot clear of runner-up Jerry Kelly.
The 31-year-old adds his second TOUR title in his 110th career start and second of the season, joining the WGC-HSBC back in Nov., which he co-led after 54 holes. He becomes the fifth multiple winner on TOUR this season, joining Jason Day (3), Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, and Adam Scott with two each. The Scot began the finale in a three-way T2 on 12-under, three shy of overnight leader and playing competitor Daniel Berger, who shot 74. He mustered just six (of 14) fairways but hit 13 greens in regulation, posting a tidy 1.692 putts per GIR though a pedestrian 0.289 in SG: Putting. Knox outpaced bogey-5 at four with birdies on 3 and 6 to turn 1-under, trailing Berger by one. He circled back-to-backs on 13 and 14, both from inside of seven feet, before squaring bogey-4 at 16 (failed scramble). Knox came to 18 leading Kelly (in the clubhouse) by one. He missed the fairway and the green, but got up-and-down from a greenside bunker, nailing a 12'1" par for the title. Aug 7 - 6:16 PM
