Russell Knox makes cool piece of PGA Tour history

Russell Knox

By his own high standards, 2019 has been a disappointing year for Russell Knox. 

The Inverness-born PGA Tour star slipped from 68th on the Official World Golf Ranking to 109th and recorded just two top-10 finishes all year. 

However, there was one silver lining. 

Knox, 34, recorded the longest fairway hole-out of not just the year but the entire DECADE on the PGA Tour.
