  • Russell Knox believes victory at next month's Scottish Open at Castle Stuart would be the biggest win of his career.

    Knox was born just a few miles away in Inverness and is hugely excited about playing on his home patch.

    "This is it for me." the 30-year-old Scot explained. "This is one of the biggest tournaments I could ever play.

    "To come home to Inverness and play as a pro for the first time is something I thought could never happen, so I can't wait."

    Knox, the leading Scot in the world rankings at 24, has been based in the United States since winning a golf scholarship in 2003.

    But he is relishing playing so close to his birthplace at the Scottish Open from 7-10 July, a week before the Open at Royal Troon.

    "The atmosphere is going to be just amazing and it will feel like playing in a major," he said. "I'll go there and give it a crack.

    "Of course winning the WGC event in China was massive for my career, but everyone dreams of winning in their home town and I'd love that to come true for me.

    "Even just to play is going to be amazing as well, but if I can play well and get to lift the trophy at the end, it would be a huge bonus.

    "If I can win at Castle Stuart, it will be the biggest win of my career."
