Golf: John Deere Classic Tips


WITH a lot of the PGA Tour players either taking part in the Olympics or having a week off the 156 participants of the John Deere Classic have a chance to climb up the rankings.

The 7268 yards, par 71, TPC Deere Run course was ranked third easiest on the PGA Tour last year so expect low scores. Of the 11 who finished in the top 10 a year ago eight were in the top 15 for GIR and in strokes gained:putting six were inside the top20. The cut fell at -4 (138) so we can expect some explosive stuff.

Daniel Summerhayes had a good USPGA, finishing solo third, and his last seven rounds have all been sub-70. He is eighth in strokes gained:putting (.637), 119th in GIR with 64.29% and is 30th in birdie average with 3.79. He looks to be coming into good form and I can seen the 33-year-old notch up his first Tour win before the year is out. In his last three outings here he has not finished lower than T13.

Robert Garrigus has not won on Tour since 2010 but this year he is beginning to show some sort of form. He has four top-11 finishes since late May including a T5 and in the Travelers last week finished T5 and looks to have the qualities to get another top five this week. In greens in regulation he is 22nd (68.75), 10th in birdie average with 4.0. His strokes gained:putting could be a lot better (-.183, 143rd) but certainly worth a small wager.
