It is the second PGA Tour victory for Knox, who broke through by winning the WGC-HSBC Champions tournament in Shanghai in November last year.

Knox's victory came a few hours after American Jim Furyk had shot a record 12-under 58, the lowest round in PGA Tour history. The performance vaulted Furyk into a tie for fifth at 11-under, three shots behind Knox.
