Scot Russell Knox is sitting just three shots behind leader Henrik Stenson heading into the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

The 30-year-old will be in the third last group at TPC Boston after recovering from a tough front nine to post four birdies coming in for a three-under-par round of 68 and a ten-under-par total – aided by an excellent 65 on Saturday.

Knox has never won on the PGA Tour but does have three top ten finishes so far in 2015, while his best career finish on tour was runner-up at the 2014 Honda Classic, where he lost out to Russell Henley in a four-man play-off which also included Rory McIlroy and Ryan Palmer.

Stenson heads the field on 13-under-par from Rickie Fowler a shot back in second, while Sean O’Hair and Matt Jones are the only other players currently ahead of Inverness-born Knox on 11-under-par.


Deutsche Bank Championship - Round Three

“It was a good day out there,” said the Swede, who finished runner-up to Jason Day at The Barclays last week. “No bogeys and six birdies, so I’m happy with that. I was striking it nicely today and I feel I’m in good shape heading into the final round.

“It’s a good time to start playing well and of course, it’s a big event with lots to play for. I’m happy with the progress I’ve made and last week’s tournament gave me a little bit of a confidence boost.”

Fowler, meanwhile, is chasing his third win of the season after also tasting success at the Players Championship and Scottish Open, and is relishing his final round showdown with Stenson.

“I’m definitely happy with the position I'm in with the way things turned out today. Mentally it's been a great week for me, just the process and everything and all the shots and committing and moving forward. I'm looking forward to being in the final group with Henrik and we'll have some fun.”
