This week, the PGA TOUR is in Silvis, Ill. for the John Deere Classic. Here are some of the features you can expect to see on PGATOUR.COM:
STRICKER GOES FOR FOUR IN A ROW
It’s one of the more remarkable streaks in recent PGA TOUR history. Steve Stricker, already a regional favorite at TPC Deere Run, has reeled off three consecutive victories in this event. His most dramatic? Last year, when he birdied from the bunker on the 72nd hole to deny a rookie a shot at the win. That rookie? Kyle Stanley. Stanley joins Stricker in the field this week.
