This past week was an exciting one for a number of our staffers in Development and we wanted to share a few of the highlights with you!
Russell Knox, 26 years old, originally from Scotland who played collegiately at Jacksonville University put on a clinic this week at the Hooters Tour event in Tunica, Mississippi. He shot rounds of 62, 61, 71, and 65 to shoot 29 under and won by eight shots—some impressive numbers to say the least! This is Russell’s second Developmental win of the year—he won the very first event of the year on the EGolf Tour. His combined earnings for the year are well over $100,000. He currently leads the Hooters Tour points race for an exemption into the Nationwide event in Knoxville with only this week’s event remaining. Let’s hope he gets the chance to tee it up out there. Russell has been a tremendous ambassador for Cleveland Golf / Srixon and will continue to be as he moves up through the next levels.
