WITB: Russell Knox, WGC-HSBC Champions

Knox becomes both the first Scot and first debutant to win a WGC event
 

Russell Knox became the first player to win a WGC on his debut (he was the 7th reserve at one point), and the first Scot to win one, when he beat Kevin Kisner by two shots after shooting a 68 in Shanghai.

The Scot teed off at 7.45 am on his own after choosing not to play the 18th hole of his third round and it proved to be the beginning of a magical day.

Knox led the field in birdies (25) and ranked T3 in greens in regulation (84.72 percent) using Srixon’s Z 545 (5-iron) and Z 745 (6-9) irons.

“It’s incredible. I always hoped it (a win) was going to happen but you’re just never sure,” the 30-year-old said.

“Deep down in my bones I felt I was capable of winning. I thought it was going to be maybe another year, but I’m glad it happened now.”
