Russell Knox carded a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Sony Open and remains inside the top 10 at 10-under 200.
Knox is searching for his first PGA TOUR win, and he played like the pressure of that money on his back was in the back of his head. His six birdies at Waialae Country Club were impressive, but the five bogeys were inexcusable. Four of his birdies ranged from 20 to 45 feet, so it was clearly a bit of a smoke-and-mirrors job. Time will tell if he settles down for tomorrow's finale, but he trails Jimmy Walker by six strokes and a win appears unlikely. That could take some pressure off of him. Jan 17 - 10:00 PM

Russell Knox painted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to set the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 9-under 131.

The Scot went out in the second threesome off No. 10 at Waialae today. He'd go 5-for-15 in birdie chances, the longest stretching 18'2" at the par-3 11th hole. While he's very much on the upswing of his career arc, his success today marked a minor achievement. In three previous starts at this tournament, he had failed to survive the cut. Suddenly, he's sitting on the pole position in pursuit of his first PGA TOUR title.

Russell Knox turned in a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii, finishing four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Waialae has had Knox' number over the years. In all three of his previous trips, he left without surviving the cut. That record is 18 holes from going by the boards after today's six-birdie performance. Three of his par breakers stretched longer than 10 feet, the highlight dropping in from 22 feet at the par-3 seventh. Overall, he found 13 greens in regulation and saved par three times on the other five holes. The Scot squared two bogeys, including a 5 at the par-4 second where he rinsed his tee ball.

Russell Knox has struggled with Waialae Country Club but returns for redemption at this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

The Scot has been knocked down by Waialae CC in years past but he's not TKO'd just yet. He is 0-for-3 with just two of his six career rounds being in red numbers. On paper, this venue should suit his fairways and greens style of play, but there is a reason these golfers go out there and tee it up. Gamers should expect Knox to earn his first cut made at Waialae, but should keep their expectations low after that.

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.

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.
