Russell Knox

Recommended Posts

Scored a record equalling 59 yesterday in the 2nd round of the Boise Open in the US. Great round and he speaks with a slightly more American drawl when interviewed by US commentator ;-)

Well done - hopefully goes well in the next two days and the rest of the season.

Russell was also a talented footballer who was with ICT from age 12 to 16. He gave it up to concentrate on his golf - Wise boy when you see the money he is making!

He's had a good 3rd round and is now in 3rd place going into the final round, 3 shots behind leader, Rory McIlroy!

I was just looking at his World Ranking history and he's currently 205 with a career high of 200. He's certain to break well into the top 200 now, I'd imagine.

In final playoff with Henley, Palmer & Mcllroy with Henley winning, ending up fourth. Well done to the young man from Inverness :clapping:

Well done in the end - was going well but one error at the 14th cost him. The water played havoc with a few of them coming down the last few holes and it made for an exciting finish. He did well to stay composed and make the play-off. Goes down as a T2 finish but another $400K and up 24 places to 19th in the FedEx Cup standings. Onwards and upwards....

And a huge leap to no. 119 in the World Rankings! He'll be eyeing Ryder Cup at this rate!

He's doing tremendously well!

Wouldn't it be terrific he got one of the 3 'Captain's Picks' for the Ryder Cup!?! I feel sure that if a Scotsman hasn't qualified automatically, then one will get chosen...
