Meet Russell

Born in Inverness but went to the Jacksonville University on a golf scholarship and remained in Florida after graduating. Decided to take up European Tour Me mbership for 2016 and attempt to qualify for the European Ryder Cup team for Hazeltine.

 

Plays predominantly on the US PGA Tour, where has won twice including the co-sanctioned WGC-HSBC Champions, where he became the first Scot to win a WGC event in 2015.

 

Known as the ‘BMW’ during his time at university for his straight-driving prowess as ‘The Ultimate Driver’, he lives next door to fellow European Tour member David Lingmerth in Ponte Vedra, Florida, with his wife Andrea, a former tennis pro.
