Russell Knox

Nicknamed "Roo" Knox enjoys traveling, good food and movies. He played college golf at Jacksonville University, where he led the team to the 2006 Atlantic Sun Conference title and was named a Division I All-American the same year. He also competed at the NCAA tournament in 2006 and 2007.
Knox turned professional in 2007 and began competing on the NGA Hooters Tour, notching two top-5 finishes in his first season.
In 2008, he continued to compete on the Hooters Tour, finishing T-2nd three times and T-3rd twice. Recorded his first professional win at the 2009 Silver Star Hotel Classic. Also had five 2nd-place finishes on the NGA tour that year.
In 2010, he won the Hooters Tour's Gold Strike Classic and the eGolf Tour's Palmetto Hall Championship, while also finishing runner-up in three events on the NGA Tour.
After a successful 2011, he competed in the Korn Ferry Tour's Fresh Express Classic, where he finished T-2nd, granting him special temporary member status on the tour. He then won the Chiquita Classic and finished in the top-25 in seven of the 20 events he entered, finishing 12th on the 2011 Korn Ferry Tour money list.
2012 Notes: Competed on the PGA Tour, playing in 23 events, with two top-10 finishes, at the Frys.com Open and the Children's Miracle Network Classic, where he finished T-9th, and four top-25 finishes. Continued to compete on the Korn Ferry Tour, recording two top-10 finishes.
2013 Notes: Finished the year by making the cut in 12 of 15 Korn Ferry Tour starts and had nine top-25 finishes. Also played on the PGA Tour, where he made eight cuts in 11 starts. At the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Knox shared the opening-round lead with Hunter Mahan following a six-under-par 64, and eventually finished T-28th. The opening-round 64 equaled his career-low 18-hole total (second round of the 2012 Zurich Classic of New Orleans). Had five top-15s in his first nine Korn Ferry Tour starts, then closed the regular season with a T-7th at the Price Cutter Charity Championship and a 6th-place effort at the Cox Classic. The highlight of his season was the 59 he shot in the second round of the Albertsons Boise Open in late July. A two-putt from 70 feet, including a seven-footer for his par, made him the fifth player in Korn Ferry Tour history to reach the magic number of 59. He finished T-12th at Boise, with his other three rounds, 69-68-69. Finished T-6th at the season-ending Korn Ferry Tour Championship to regain his PGA Tour card for 2013-14. Finished three shots behind winner Chesson Hadley at TPC Sawgrass' Dye's Valley Course.
2014 Notes: In 26 starts, Knox had three top-10 finishes, one of them a playoff loss, and made 20 cuts. Finished T-10th at the Farmers Insurance Open, with rounds of 71-67-74-70. At the Honda Classic, he tied the week's low round with a 7-under-par 63 in the second round to get within three strokes of 2012 Honda Classic champion Rory McIlroy's lead. Knox made a clutch 9-foot putt for par on the 72nd hole at PGA National to join Russell Henley, Ryan Palmer and McIlroy in sudden-death. When Henley managed to birdie the first extra hole, Knox settled for a T-2nd, his career-best PGA Tour finish. His third top-10 finish of the season came at the RBC Heritage, where he finished T-9th, six strokes behind champion Matt Kuchar. Knox made it through the first three events in the FedEx Cup Playoffs before finishing 40th in the standings after the BMW Championship and 68th on the money list.
2015 Notes: Had four top-10s around the world, including a 3rd at the Shriners Hospitals and T-3rd at the Honda Classic. Also finished T-8th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic and T-10th at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open. Ended the year 34th in the FedExCup rankings and 37th on the money list.
2016 Notes: Picked up his first PGA Tour victory at the WGC-HSBC Championship played in China. He shot a final-round 68 for the two-shot win over Kevin Kisner. He joined Jeff Maggert, who won the first WGC event at the 1999 Accenture Match Play Championship, as the only players to win in their first WGC starts. In his next start, Knox lost in a playoff at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in his attempt to become the first player to win his first two victories in back-to-back starts since Camilo Villegas at the 2008 BMW Championship and Tour Championship. Needed a par at the 72nd hole to win outright, but a bogey forced the tournament to a playoff with Jason Bohn and eventual-champion Graeme McDowell, all tied at 18-under 266. Five months later he finished T-2nd at the RBC Heritage, two shots back of winner Branden Grace. A month later, he was again runner-up at the Irish Open, three back from winner Rory McIlroy. Was T-10th at the Scottish Open, the next week was T-30th at the British Open. Was T-22nd at the PGA Championship. The next week, Knox won his second PGA Tour title at the Travelers Championship in his 110th PGA Tour start. Began the final round 3 shots back of Daniel Berger but secured the win with a par putt of 12 feet, 1 inch on the 72nd hole for a one-shot victory over Jerry Kelly. The win helped him gain the points needed to play in all four FedExCup playoff events. Finished 10th in the FedEx Cup race and 7th on the money list.
2017 Notes: Played in 24 PGA Tour events making 14 cuts. Finished in the top-ten 4 times and was 71st in the FedExCup race. Got off to a hot start with a T-10th at the CIMB Classic, the next week was T-9th at the WGC-HSBC Champions In his next start was 3rd in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. Since then his best finish is T-11th at the Sony Open in Hawaii and RBC Heritage. With four sub-70 rounds finished T-5th at the WGC-Bridgestone.
2018 Notes: Played in 27 PGA Tour events making 20 cuts with three top-ten finishes. Was T-9th at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, T-10th at the Sony Open in Hawaii. Ran into an incredible streak which started simply with a T-12th at the U.S. Open and then a T-38th at the Travelers. After that flew to Europe, at the French Open shot a final round 65 to finish T-2nd just a shot back of winner Alex Noren. The next week played in Northern Ireland in the Dubai Duty-Free Irish Open and with rounds of 68-66 over the weekend ended up tied with Ryan Fox. On the first playoff hole won with a birdie. Played in the first two FedExCup Playoffs, after missing cut at Northern Trust and T-43rd at the Dell Technologies Championship ended his year 89th in the FedExCup standings.
2019 Notes: After a first round of 71, shot 66-69-68 to finish T-10th at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Was T-8th at the Charles Schwab Challenge.
