A few dollars more for Russell Knox

Florida-based Inverness exile Russell Knox finished joint 13th with a seven-under-par total of 209 in the NGA Hooters Tour Winter Series event at Timacuan Golf Club, Lake Mary, Florida today.
Knox, one of the leading money-winners on the Hooters Tour since he turned pro following four years as a student at Jacksonville University, Florida, had rounds of 70, 69 and 70 over the par-72, 7025yd course to earn $1,913. The Scot birdied the third, fifth, 12th and 17th but bogeys at the ninth and 11th on this highly-competitive satellite circuit cost him a top-10 finish and possibly double the pay-out he did get.
He finished 11 shots behind the winner of the $12,462 first prize, Michael Thompson from Birmingham, Alabama with scores of 69, 66 and 63 for a five-shot win with an 18-under-par total of 198.
