US Open 2016: Russell Knox to alter Oakmont preparations

Russell Knox says he will change his build-up to this week’s US Open at Oakmont in an attempt to improve his record in major championships.

The Scot, 30, has competed in five majors but only made the cut in his first one, the 2013 US Open at Merion.
“I need to get the right balance of preparation and practice to really feel refreshed and ready to go,” Knox said.
“I feel I’ve done a really poor job of that before. I’m going to try not to make that error in the coming week.”
Inverness-born Knox failed to progress to the final two rounds of the 2014 and 2015 US PGA Championships, the 2015 Open and this year’s Masters.
“One thing I have struggled with is the practice days,” explained the world number 24.
“On most PGA Tour and European Tour events there is a pro-am on the Wednesday, so you tend to travel on the Monday, practice on the Tuesday and play the pro-am on the Wednesday.
“With a major there is no pro-am so I have tended to get there too early on the Monday and play too much from Monday to Wednesday.”
