SHANGHAI – Russell Knox became the first Scotsman ever to win a World Golf Championships event when he held off a world-class field for a two-stroke victory in Shanghai on Sunday. His final round four-under par 68 at the $8.5 million WGC-HSBC Champions gave him a total of 268, 20-under par. Kevin Kisner of the US was second on 270, while English pair Danny Willett and Ross Fisher tied for third a further stroke behind. Knox started the day at 85th in the world golf rankings and could now move into the top 30 when the new standings are announced on Monday. The 30-year-old from Inverness, who is based in the United States and plays solely on the US PGA Tour, still had to play the final hole of his third round early Sunday after walking off in bad light after dusk on Saturday at Sheshan International Golf Club.
