Knous fired a three-under 69 on Sunday at the Safeway Open to finish 10-under and tied for 10th.
Knous was one of three rookies to finish top-10 in the season opener, joining both Sungjae Im and Chase Wright. A solid showing with the flat stick kept Knous from carding any doubles or worse while notching only seven bogeys throughout the entire tournament. He ranked ninth among the field in SG: Putting and 14th in putts per GIR, but fell to T54 in driving distance. Knous won't be in the field for this week's CIMB Classic, so his next chance to tee it up will come at the CJ Cup.
