The John Deere Classic is an American professional golf event which is on the PGA Tour schedule. This PGA Tournament is played annually in July, the week before the British Open Championship, at the TPC at Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois. John Deere Classic is sponsored by Deere & Company, which is a sponsor of the PGA Tour.
The John Deere Classic made its PGA Tour debut as the Quad Cities Open in 1971. “Quad Cities” is the term applied to a group of five cities adjacent to the Mississippi River in Iowa and Illinois. Yes, the “quad” is made up of the following five cities of Davenport and Bettendorf in Iowa, and Moline, East Moline, and Rock Island in Illinois.
In recent years the John Deere Classic has generated quite a large amount of television and press coverage due to sponsor’s exemptions given to teenager Michelle Wie, but in 2005 the tournament’s storyline also revolved around young American golfer Sean O’Hair. By winning the tournament O’Hair qualified to play in the British Open the following week, making the John Deere Classic a very significant part of his PGA Rookie-of-the-Year season.
Other notable John Deere Classic achievements include Sam Snead having set a couple of PGA Tour records at the 1979 tournament. At the age of 67 Snead not only became the oldest golfer to make a cut in a PGA Tour event, but in the second round he matched his age with a 67 and in the final round he bettered that with a 66, making this is the only time a golfer has shot his age or better on the PGA Tour.
