THE TPC Deere Run in Illinois is not the hardest course on the PGA Tour by any manner of means and in fact Jordan Spieth shot 61 two years ago and Paul Goydos hit a 59 in 2010 so expect low scoring this weekend.
With water in play on five of the holes driving accuracy could be a factor and GIR could also be another stat to watch out for.
After winning the Fed-Ex St Jude Classic Daniel Berger missed the cut at the US Open. The following week at the Travellers he hit four rounds in the 60s and finished second and looks like he’s back in the groove. He makes his first appearance here but has all the attributes to get his second win of the season. Driving Accuracy 60.94% (98th) GIR: 67.66% (39th)
Since missing the first three cuts of the season Charley Hoffman has picked himself up and has four top fives to his name. Finishing solo eighth in the US Open was a great achievement and following that up with a T3 at the Travellers it looks like he’s reaching his peak. He is one of those player who is steady and if he gets into a good position on the Saturday he is one to watch out for on the Sunday. Driving Accuracy: 58.87% (129th) GIR: 66.44% (70th).
