John Deere Classic : The 2019 John Deere Classic gets underway from TPC Deere Run on Thursday. D.A. Weibring designed this unique course, which plays over 7,000 yards and boasts a par of 71. Experienced and amateur bettors alike will lock in wagers on this event, which brings together experienced veterans and up-and-coming players trying to sneak into the final major of the year.
Wolff’s victory last week at TPC Twin Cities took care of a lot: It earned him instant membership and a two-year exemption on the PGA Tour and invitations to next year’s Masters and PGA Championship. But it didn’t get him a spot in the field at the British Open.
That, too, is a possibility this week: The top finisher not already exempt who finishes in the top 5 at TPC Deere Run will qualify to play next week at Royal Portrush — and get a seat on the charter flight that the John Deere Classic provides to players making the trip to Northern Ireland.
If he doesn’t get there this year, there appear to be plenty of major championship starts in the future for Wolff, who has always shown huge potential.
A special week in the Quad-Cities has kicked off as professional golfers flock to Silvis to compete in a PGA Tour classic.
The 49th John Deere Classic, a PGA Tour professional golf tournament, will be played at TPC Deere Run tomorrow through Sunday. Golfers from around the world will compete for a $6 million purse.
As the festivities kicked off earlier this week, JDC Volunteer Chairman Sean McGuire said it’s a great time to be in the Quad-Cities.
“It’s a great event. We have 156 of the greatest golfers in the world coming to join us this week,” McGuire said. “We raise a lot of money for charity. … There’s just a lot of things to see and do.”
