I mean, the amateur system is great and coaching’s great. But for some reason, there just haven’t been as many players to win, especially from my kind of age.” Knox’s win at Ballyliffin made him the first Scot to win a regulation European Tour event since Richie Ramsey claimed the 2015 Trophee Hassan. This week, he will have the Scottish flags waving as he aims to become the first Scot since Montgomerie in 1999 to win his home Open. In what is a remarkable stat, Monty remains the only local winner of the title in the tournament’s 45-year history. Regarded as one of the most accurate drivers of a golf ball on the PGA Tour, Knox will be better than most in controlling his ball on Gullane’s fairways, which have been baked hard by un-Scotland-like warm and dry weather during the past month. “Right now I’m enjoying winning this trophy right here, and The Scottish Open is going to be an amazing week,” Knox said. “But if I go on and struggle the next two weeks, I mean, I’m enjoying this victory. This is a sweet one. I’m going to really enjoy this moment and the next two weeks. “But you never know. I mean, the field ... I’ve beaten everyone before that’s in the field. It can happen. I’m going to try my best, and you never know, do you. It’s a weird game.” Even OId Tom would agree with that. COVER STORY I don’t know why Scottish golf isn’t better than it is. It should be.
