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.

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.

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.

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.

Russell Knox looks to get back on track in the Travelers Championship.

Knox enters TPC River Highlands having missed his last two cuts on the PGA TOUR. Before that brief dry spell, he had put together an impressive run in 2013-14. Considering he tied for 13th in this event last season, it's perfectly reasonable to expect him to get back on the horse and post a solid return this time around.

Russell Knox will make his tournament debut at this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Knox doesn't rely on distance, averaging just 282 yards off the tee. He splits 68.7% of fairways and finds 68.68% of greens in regulation, good for 16th and 25th on TOUR, respectively. On paper, Knox is a fantastic fit for Colonial with the putter being his only drawback. His results on the season scream consistency much like last week's winner, Brendon Todd, with top 35s in 12-of-16 tournaments.

Russell Knox settled for a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the RBC Heritage.

The Scot had a ho-hum finale on his way to 5-under 279 for the tournament. Knox circled three birdies on the round, but gave back two of them with bogeys on the par-4 12th and par-3 17th hole. This top 10 will be his third of the season.
Apr 20 - 5:36 PM

Russell Knox coasted to a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in his third round of the RBC Heritage.

The Scot had one hiccup along the way on the par-3 14th hole as he splashed his tee shot. He quickly recovered as he stuck his 99-yard drop to four inches. Knox did most of the damage on the par 5s, circling birdies on all three. With his longest conversion on the green coming from just 6'6" on the par-4 10th, he has to be very happy to be sitting at 4-under 209 after three rounds. In fact, he signed his card with a share of the early 54-hole clubhouse lead.
Apr 19 - 5:45 PM

Russell Knox smoothed a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage, good for early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Knox went out in the third threesome off the first tee at Harbour Town this morning. He landed only 10 greens in regulation, but the putting surfaces on the Pete Dye design average just 3,700 square feet, and the track yielded the lowest GIR percentage of any course in 2013 (57.15 percent, or 10.29 GIR per round). So, he parlayed what he could into four birdies against two bogeys. Three of his birdies dropped in from outside 15 feet, but his longest conversion of the rounds measured 21'3" for par at the par-4 16th. At the time he signed his card, Knox' strokes gained-putting clip sat north of 4.210.

Russell Knox enters this week's RBC Heritage ranked 27th in the FedExCup standings.

The Scot is having a fantastic 2014 campaign, with 10-of-13 finishes being 32nd place or better. Knox is not the longest off the tee but is very efficient with the driver, ranking 18th in driving accuracy. Playing on a short course where accuracy trumps distance, gamers should turn their attention to Knox this week.
