Knost retires from professional golf after missing WMPO cut

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Former U.S. Amateur champion Colt Knost is retiring from professional golf following a missed cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Knost, 34, is a Scottsdale resident and saved the final start of his major medical extension for his hometown event. Needing a victory to retain his PGA Tour status, he shot rounds of 70-72 that left him one shot outside the cut line. He’ll now be trading in his clubs for a microphone, having accepted a broadcasting opportunity with CBS Sports in addition to his ongoing radio show on SiriusXM.

“I just don’t want to go play that other tour (Korn Ferry Tour) anymore,” Knost told GolfChannel.
