So Yeon Ryu didn’t even know she was the new World No.1 when she lifted the trophy on Sunday after winning the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship, but now says she’s living her dream...
Russell Knox might not have got the nod for the Ryder Cup but he has been mistaken for Justin Timberlake.
It might seem an odd lookalike but it‘s not a million miles away even if the Scot’s wife, former tennis player Andrea Hernandez, was not buying into it.
“She was like: `No, never. I don’t see it. I don’t think so’,” Knox said. “And that same day, at the St John’s Town Center, this woman runs up to me screaming.”
But it seems that the woman’s excitement didn’t last too long… “She gets five steps away and was ‘Oh’ and walked away.”
Whatever the passing similarity it makes a nice change from Nick Faldo and Harrison Ford which has been doing the rounds for the last 30 years.
