Russell Knox: In the bag

Russell Knox became the first Scot to win a WGC event with a two-stroke victory in the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai. 

The 30-year-old sank six birdies in his final round, and became the first WGC debutant winner since Jeff Maggert in 1999.

Knox led the field in birdies (25) and ranked tied third in greens in regulation (84.72%) using Srixon's Z 545 (5-iron) and Z 745 (6-9) irons.
