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.

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.
May 20 - 12:54 PM

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.

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.

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.
Apr 15 - 12:47 PM

Russell Knox posted a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in his opening round of the Valspar Championship, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

The Scot took last week off after losing in a playoff at The Honda Classic, so he just hit the ground running again at Copperhead today. Knox landed 13 greens in regulation and circled three birdies, the longest of which from 26'8" at the par-4 12th hole. He also swallowed two bogeys, but converted a par attempt from 15'4" at 13 to help secure the red number.
Mar 13 - 3:25 PM

Russell Knox posted a 1-over-par 34-37=71 in the final round of The Honda Classic to join a four-man playoff at 8-under 272.

Knox parred the par-5 18th in the first playoff hole and was eliminated by a Russell Henley birdie. Knox began his day on PGA National with birdies on two of his first three holes, but that would be it for the sub-par scores. A bogey at the par-4 fourth immediately put a dent in his attack, then a double bogey at the par-4 14th after a risky shot from the pine straw ultimately cost him a win. As it stands, his three-way tie for second will go down in the record book as the best finish of his PGA TOUR career.
Mar 2 - 6:24 PM

Russell Knox managed a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of The Honda Classic and is the first man in the clubhouse at 9-under 201.

The Scot circled two birdies and one bogey on each of his nines at PGA National, with two of his four birdies coming from outside 20 feet. He did an excellent job of keeping the ball in play off the tee, missing just two fairways while finding 12 GIR. With two of his last four finishes resulting in top 15s, he's poised for a breakout tournament. A big final round would mean that he stands a real chance to earn a breakthrough win on Sunday.
Mar 1 - 5:24 PM

Russell Knox smoothed a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63 in his second round of The Honda Classic.

Not many golfers can claim that their career-low round on the PGA TOUR occurred at PGA National, but add Knox to the short list. He had scored as low as 64 twice before. The Scot birdied both par 5s, including a conversion from 19'3" at the 18th hole -- his ninth of the round -- and added five birdies elsewhere, all of which from inside 10 feet. At 7-under 133, he's four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. He's been nails all season, so consider today's achievement a bit of a culmination. A coronation in the way of a PGA TOUR breakthrough victory may not be far off.
Feb 28 - 1:28 PM

Russell Knox kept his rally rolling with a 2-under-par 33-37=70 in the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to post 6-under 282.

If you're not on the Knox bandwagon by now, hop aboard. He arrived at Torrey Pines with five cuts made in six starts. While he had only one top 25 (T13, Humana) until today -- he's T10 as the final groups come in -- the Scot has been consistently above average for some time now. In today's finale, he hit 12 greens and squared two bogeys, but found four birdies on his outward nine, including a 14-yard hole-out from a greenside bunker at the par-4 fifth hole. Two of the other birdies disappeared from outside 10 feet, but his longest conventional conversion measured 17'5" for par at No. 14. Knox is in the reshuffle but he'll sit near the top of it all season thanks to his terrific start. Invest with confidence if, again, you already haven't.
Jan 26 - 5:34 PM

Russell Knox turned in a 5-under-par 32-35=67 for his second round of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines North.

Golfers can't look at the leaderboard in earnest until all 156 in the field complete one round on each course. While three withdrew before the Scot signed today's card, he's still in terrific position entering the weekend at 6-under 136, six strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. He hit 16 greens on the North Course and erased two bogeys with seven birdies. It's his sixth payday in seven starts this season and further proof that he's fulfilling the sleeper label with which he entered 2013-14.
