His longest of three birdies from outside 11 feet dropped in from 21'4" at the par-3 13th hole. He also poured in a par save from 13'2" at the par-3 sixth. Th 29-year-old is still in pursuit of his first PGA TOUR victory. This is his 78th start on the circuit. May 15 - 12:41 PM

Russell Knox makes his way to the Wells Fargo Championship for his second-career visit.

Knox was last seen at Quail Hollow Club posting a 77-73-MC at the 2012 edition so you can't really blame him for taking a couple-year hiatus from the behemoth. The 29-year-old is in the throws of his fourth season on the PGA TOUR and is enjoying a 12-for-16 campaign with six top 25s, including two third-place finishes (solo third, Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and T3, Honda Classic). Knox, coming off a T17 at THE PLAYERS, enters this week a lofty 35th in the FedExCup standings where he's finished 179th, 166th, and 40th in his first three seasons.
May 12 - 9:36 PM

Russell Knox returns to the RBC Heritage after posting a top-10 finish in his debut a year ago.

Knox is 9-for-14 on the season and ranks 33rd in FedExCup points on the strength of two top-3 finishes (Shriners Hospitals for Children and Honda Classic). At 79th in the Official World Golf Ranking, Knox has a chance this week to crack the top 64 and qualify for the WGC-Match Play (the last week to do so). Statistical profile is suited for HHI across the board.
Apr 15 - 6:43 PM

Russell Knox turned in a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-33=67 for his troubles in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Two of his birdies fell on the front nine, with an 11'8" birdie on the par-5 fourth slightly outshining an 11'1" birdie on the par-5 sixth hole. Knox tacked on three more birdies on the back nine. Though he split just half of Bay Hill's 14 fairways, he landed an impressive 15 GIR. While his 54-hole total of 7-under 209 is certainly respectable, especially since he survived the cut on the number, it likely won't even be worth a top-15 standing at round's end. He will need to go low in Sunday's finale if he is to have a prayer at his first PGA TOUR win.
Mar 21 - 1:11 PM

Russell Knox spun a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the Valspar Championship and is one off the clubhouse lead at 3-under 210.

Knox took off like a rocket in his third lap around the Copperhead Course, circling birdies on three of his first four holes including a 17'9" effort on the par-4 second hole. He would surrender bogeys on the seventh, eighth and 16th holes before rallying with a 13'3" birdie on the par-4 18th to end his day in the red. He has never won the the PGA TOUR, but came close at The Honda Classic two weeks ago. He wouldn't have to do anything too crazy on Sunday to sneak out of Innisbrook Resort with a victory.
Mar 14 - 3:52 PM

Russell Knox completed 72 holes of The Honda Classic in 5-under-par 275, checking up one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

The Scot won't find himself in a playoff as he did a year ago, but it's safe to say that he's found a haven on a track that usually beats guys up. And to a man, Knox may feel like he should have scored lower. En route to a 2-under 35-33=68 in his final round, he missed only one green in regulation, but squared three bogeys, two as a result of three-putts. He also rolled in five birdies, two of which from 10-14 feet, but dropping shots on a course where it's critical to pile up scoring opportunities is disappointing. This week's top five will go alongside a solo third at the Shriners in the fall.
Mar 2 - 10:54 AM

Russell Knox treaded his way to an even-par 35-35=70 in the third round of The Honda Classic to remain at 3-under 207.

Knox circled two birdies and square two bogeys at PGA National's Champion Course. His birdies were vastly different, as he drained a 39-foot birdie at the par-4 ninth and threw a dart to two feet for a birdie on the par-3 15th. He gained just shy of three strokes tee-to-green for his work, but lost almost two strokes with the flat stick. While he has never won on the PGA TOUR, he came close here last year when he lost in a playoff.
Mar 1 - 3:49 PM

Russell Knox signed for a 2-under-par 35-33=68 following his second round of The Honda Classic and established the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 3-under 137.

Imagine that. A Scot playing well in unfavorable weather. Knox split 11 (of 14) fairways and went 7-for-8 in scrambling to support three birdies. His longest conversion dropped from just inside 22 feet at the par-4 11th hole. He has to feel fortunate to have been placed in the late-early draw this week. Even though conditions were worse during his opening round, he navigated PGA National in 1-under 69. Now, he's in the house as the early-late has no idea when it will complete 36 holes. The final tee times today are 5:20 p.m. and the weather forecast is worse on Saturday than it was today when two delays totaled three hours and 44 minutes.
Feb 27 - 3:34 PM

Russell Knox came up just short at the 2014 Honda Classic but will get a chance at redemption during this week's running.

The Scot joined Ryan Palmer, Rory McIlroy, and Russell Henley in last year's playoff extravaganza. Knox fell short in the end, but walked away with +6.668 total strokes gained:tee-to-green on the week. He currently ranks 35th in the FedExCup standings and his P2 last year is a great sign for gamers investing this week.
Feb 24 - 12:01 PM

Russell Knox spun a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to join Russell Henley in the clubhouse lead at 8-under 205.

Knox began his day on the 10th hole and picked up four short birdies on his first eight holes. Turning his attention to the front nine, he tacked on a 15'9" birdie at the par-4 second hole and a 6'3" birdie on the par-3 fourth before parring in. Never a winner on the PGA TOUR, the Scot will likely need to take it deep on Sunday if he is to pick up his first trophy.
Jan 31 - 3:36 PM

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.
Jan 16 - 4:23 PM

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.
Jan 15 - 9:14 PM

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.
Jan 14 - 8:21 PM

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.
