In alternate-shot action at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, World No. 113 Russell Knox and World No. 96 Martin Laird pieced together a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the final round to wrap on 17-under 271, up one place to T7 with play winding down. UPDATE: With play completed, they finished T7, five adrift of champions Billy Horschel and Scott Piercy.
After opening in 64-73-63, the Scotsmen began T8 on 16-under, four adrift of leaders Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown. They were bogey-free 2-under thru 11 holes before playing their final seven holes in 1-over, lowlighted by a double bogey-5 at 17 after a Knox tee-ball in the water. Other than that, they had one other blemish, a 3-putt bogey-5 at 12 from 24'4", with Knox missing a 4'0" come-backer. They carded four circles at 7, 11, 13 and 16, with their long of the day from 39'7" at 16 off Laird's flat stick. Apr 29 - 5:46 PM

In Four-ball action at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, World No. 113 Russell Knox and World No. 96 Martin Laird fashioned a bogey-free, 9-under-par 31-32=63 in the third round to post 16-under 200, up 11 spots to T8, four short of 54-hole leaders Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown.

Knox is making his fifth appearance, second in the team format after a missed cut last year with Kevin Streelman. This is Laird's fifth visit, first since a MC in 2015, and has one prior cash, a T24 in 2009. The Scots began the day T19, six back, and carded five birdies and two eagles, with Knox pitching-in for a 3 at the seventh from 74'8" away, and Laird kicking his in from eight inches at the par-4 16th after driving the green. Laird carded three birdies at 1, 5 and 18, all from inside of nine feet, while Knox contributed circles at 3, also a hole-out from 24'9" away, and 13 from 9'3".

Russell Knox moves to the RBC Heritage this week at Harbour Town Golf Links looking to get on track.

Knox was doing pretty well from November into January, but a missed cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open looks to have damaged his psyche a bit. He has made the cut in just three of the past six outing, including the last time we saw him at the Houston Open. The Scotsman needs to get back to hitting fairways and doing his best to get to the green in expedient fashion, especially if he is going to continue struggling in the Scrambling and Putting departments.

World No. 98 Russell Knox styled a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Valspar Championship to post 4-under 209, up 26 places to T12 with play still in progress.

The Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, resident landed nine (of 13) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 0.820 strokes off-the-tee and 0.808 approaching-the-green. He opened with eagle at the par-5 first from 15'7", adding three birdies at 9, 10 and 14, two from between 10 and 14 feet. The 32-year-old registered 1.692 putts per GIR and 2.881 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.

Russell Knox styled a 2-under-par 36-33=69 during round one of the Valspar Championship, good for a piece of fifth place after 18 holes of action in Palm Harbor, Florida.

Knox started his day on the 10th tee and roared out of the gate with three birdies over his first seven holes. That included a 48'2" hole out for birdie at the 13th. The Scot cooled his pace as the day progressed but still managed to lap the field average by nearly four strokes today (current field average: 72.87). The Florida resident is making his sixth appearance at this event, with a T25 in 2014 being the best on his current resume. With top 30s in four of his last six starts, gamers should start penciling him in for another this week but he still needs to keep his foot on the gas for three more days. The Copperhead Course can very quickly sap the energy out of a golfer's score.

Russell Knox heads to The Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida this week looking to continue his consistent play.

Knox has made the cut in eight of the nine events he has entered this season, save for an anomaly at the Waste Management Phoenix Open when he opened with a first-round 74 before shooting a respectable 68 in the second round. Before Phoenix he was 37th or better in five straight events, including a pair of top-10 showings. Knox can go long off the tee, but he is able to harness the power ranking 38th in Driving Accuracy Percentage and sixth in GIR. There aren't many holes in his game right now. There is concern since he missed the cut at this event last season in a weather-marred tournament, but he was third in 2015 and he lost in a playoff in 2014, so he has had success here recently.
Feb 21 - 6:01 AM

Russell Knox coasted to a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-33=64 during the second round of the CareerBuilder Challenge, remaining blemish-free on the week while moving him into a share of 10th place on 11-under 133 at the midpoint.

The Scot played his second round at the Nicklaus Tournament Course and got straight to work with a three-hole birdie train that started at the par-4 second hole. He would add five more circles before his day would be over, all while keeping a clean card. It was orchestrated by smooth striking as he pelted 17 greens in regulation after hitting 13 at La Quinta CC in R1. Knox arrived fresh off a top 10 at the Sony Open where he holed out three times (+4.6 strokes around-the-green). He's taking a more traditional route this week and he now finds himself in contention heading into Saturday's round where he will face off with Pete Dye's Stadium Course.

World No. 80 Russell Knox conjured a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii, dropping four spots to T10 on 13-under 267.

After kicking off in 69-64-65, the 32-year-old began T6, four short of 54-hole leader Tom Hoge. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he hit eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, losing strokes in four of five strokes gained sub-categories. The Jacksonville University alum was bogey-free 3-under thru 14 holes, circling 7, 8 (from 27'0") and 12, but stalled out with four pars and back-to-back squares at 15 and 16 (failed sand saves). He posted a commercial 1.857 putts per GIR and -0.752 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts. Knox improves to 3-for-7 at the Sony with three top-13 finishes and first top 10. He's 5-for-5 on the season with two top 10s, joining a T9 at the OHL two starts ago.

World No. 80 Russell Knox authored a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to post 12-under 198, up seven places to T5 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Knox is T6, four back of 54-hole leader Tom Hoge.

The 32-year-old hit nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 0.984 strokes off-the-tee and 1.595 around-the-green, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 4.585. He squared two bogey-4s at holes 7 (3-putt from 33'3") and 11, offset by five birdies at 1, 2, 4, 9 and 12, walking off with a hole-out eagle-3 from a greenside bunker at 18 from 67'4" away. The Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, resident made two conversions from between 15 and 23 feet, posting 1.667 putts per GIR and 0.493 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

Russell Knox soared up the leaderboard in round two of the Sony Open in Hawaii, twirling a bogey-free, 30-34=64, climbing inside the top 15 with a two-day tally of 7-under 133.

The Scot split just five (of 14) fairways but could do no wrong in the short-game department. Highlights included a 30-foot chip-in eagle at the par-5 ninth and another hole out (38'1") for birdie at the par-4 15th. Knox ended the day gaining 2.325 strokes around-the-green and another 3.906 strokes putting. After a disappointing 2017, Knox is hoping to turn things around in 2018. He's doing a good job so far as he sits just three strokes off the pack of golfers sitting in second place. Entering the week, he had top 15s in two of his last three visits to Waialae Country Club.

With preferred lies in effect, World No. 66 Russell Knox navigated a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to reach 11-under 273, up five spots to T9, eight shy of champion Patton Kizzire.

This was the 32-year-old's six consecutive OHL, sixth cash, third straight top 25 and third straight top 10. In 24 laps around the par-71 layout, he's put 21 in the red, including 16 consecutive. This is the Scot's first top-60 finish of the season in three starts and just his second top 10 in the last 51 weeks (T5, 2017 WGC-Bridgestone). After opening in 68-68-69, he began T14 on 8-under, seven adrift of 54-hole leader Kizzire. The Jacksonville University alum found eight (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.667 putts per GIR with 30 total putts. He carded six birdies, taking some luster off with bogey-5 at 12 and double bogey-6 at 16.

World No. 66 Russell Knox fashioned a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in the second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba for a 36-hole total of 6-under 136, up 14 spots to T7 with play still in progress.

This is the 32-year-old's sixth consecutive appearance with two prior top 25s among five cashes, two for top 10s. Both of the latter double as top 3s, including a P2 in 2016 and solo 3rd last year. Overall, the Jacksonville University alum entered with a 68.80 scoring average in 20 laps around the par-71 layout, 19 at par or better and 12 straight in the red. He found 11 (of 14) fairways and 12 green in regulation, outpacing bogeys at holes 5 and 12 with five birdies at 6, 8, 13, 16 and 17. The Scot posted 1.667 putts per GIR with 28 total putts.

World No. 61 Russell Knox preps for his third consecutive CIMB Classic after T21/2016 and T10 last year, where he was T2 thru 54 holes. UPDATE: Knox finished T63 (of 78) on 1-over 289 (74-74-71-70).

The 32-year-old's put seven (of eight) laps at TPC Kuala Lumpur in the red, including a season-low 63 in R2 last year. Once ranked as high as 18th in OWGR, the 32-year-old has slipped down the list, primarily due to 10 missed cuts last season in 24 starts, his worst MC ratio since his rookie season in 2012. The Jacksonville Beach, Florida, resident has had success in this neck of the woods and in no-cut events, nabbing his breakthrough win at the 2016 WGC-HSBC. He finished 71st in the final FedExCup standings last season with four top 10s, three of those in no-cut events.

World No. 50 Russell Knox carved out to a 2-under-par 32-36=68 in the final round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to conclude on 7-under 273, up three spots to T5, nine in arrears of champion Hideki Matsuyama, who shot 61.

This was the 32-year-old's second Bridgestone, supplanting a 54th-place finish on debut last year. Overall, it was his eighth WGC event and third top 10, highlighted by his maiden TOUR title in his WGC debut at the 2016 HSBC. The transplanted Floridian records a seventh top 25 of the season, fourth top 10 and second top 5, joining solo 3rd at the OHL Classic last November. After opening in 66-71-68, he began in solo 8th, four shy of 54-hole co-leaders Zach Johnson and Thomas Pieters. The Scot found seven (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, losing 1.447 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 3.394 approaching-the-green. He was blemish-free 4-under thru 14 holes, circling Nos. 1, 2, 8 and 11 (from 17'6"), but smothered final birdie-4 at 16 with bogeys at 15, 17 and 18. Knox posted 1.714 putts per GIR and -0.365 SG: Putting, taking 31 total putts.

World No. 50 Russell Knox carved out a 2-under-par 31-37=68 in the third round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to post 5-under 205, down two places to solo eighth with play still in progress.

The 32-year-old hit eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.064 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.272 approach-the-green and 0.087 around-the-green.

The Jacksonville University alum's split featured four from between 17 and 30 feet, including a walk-off 3 from 29'10", recording 1.615 putts per GIR and 1.768 SG: Putting.
