Opportunity Knox for Russell at HSBC Champions

Powered by National Club Golfer


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 birdied the 18th and then 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.

Danny Willett was briefly tied for the lead and closed with a 62 to tie for third with Ross Fisher and that means the Race to Dubai will be settled in the final event in Dubai.

What Knox said: “It’s incredible. I always hoped it (a win) was going to happen but you're just never sure.

“There’s just so many unbelievable players on tours all around the world and to win on this stage is a dream come true. I still can’t quite believe it.

“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.”
