Sony Open R2

Russell Knox in contention on crowded leaderboard

January 09-12
Waialae CC, Honolulu, Hawaii
$6,600,000
Round 1, Round 3, Round 4


Scotland’s Russell Knox moved himself into contention with a second-round 65 at the Sony Open.

The 34-year-old recorded six birdies and a bogey to move to within a shot of leaders Brendan Steele and Cameron Davis.

Steele birdied five of his last six holes – the run ruined by a double bogey on the sixth – while Davis made five gains and a bogey as both players recorded 66s during day two in Hawaii.


The pair hold a one-shot lead over a group of nine players, which includes major winner Keegan Bradley and overnight leader Collin Morikawa.

Bradley had five birdies and a bogey in a 66 while fellow American Morikawa birdied the last two holes for a level-par 70.
