Twofer Tuesday: John Deere Classic

Twofer Tuesday heads down to the Heartland of America and the John Deere Classic, where tractors are part of the trophy presentation.

Defending champion Lucas Glover

TPC Deere Run in Silvis IL is definitely a place where you find "horses for courses." No less than six players have won this event more than twice. One of the players to win this event three times is Steve Stricker, and players joked about the "Steve Stricker Annual Annuity Event" for several years.

Defending champion Lucas Glover is hoping to join that stellar group with a second win of his own. But it's not unusual for first-time winners to make the Deere their maiden victory either.

Alas, I'm not picking any past champions this week. Let's give the new blood a chance!

  • I think Sahith Theegala is ready to win. He's come close twice now, with last week's runner-up being a good sign. Since the Deere has been so friendly to first-timers, I'm hoping this will be his.
  • And I'm taking Denny McCarthy as my other pick. Although his game's been up-and-down this year, his last three events have been T5-T7-MC. Coming back with a chip on his shoulder perhaps, I look for him to do well.

GC's coverage begins Thursday at 3pm ET. And as usual, PGA TOUR LIVE's streaming schedule also starts Thursday and you can find it at this link. The Deere is always a fun and relaxed event... but some weather is expected. In the Heartland of America, people are used to that. Let's see how the pros handle it!
