John Deere Classic PGA Tour
The PGA Tour is steeped in history and dates
all the way back to 1929, although it was not until 1968, following a dispute over the split of constantly rising revenue
due to television contracts, that it split from the PGA to deal only with tour players rather than also working as an organization
for club professionals. The John Deere Classic was first held in 1971 at Crow Valley Country Club in Davenport, Iowa before
moving to Coal Valley, Illinois' Oakwood Country Club in 1975 which was its home until 1999 when the event moves to its current
home, TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois. The tournament was originally known as the Quad City Open before adopting the name
John Deere Classic. The event has become one of the most popular on the PGA Tour and seems to grow in popularity each year.
You never know if the winner of the Bridgestone Invitational will be an established superstar or an up and coming golfer but
with tickets from StubHub you have the chance to find out in person as it all unfolds right before your eyes.
Each year the John Deere Classic features many of the biggest superstars in the world of golf and offers spectators
the chance to see their golf heroes up close and personal. Past winners of the event have included Jordan Spieth, Vijay Singh,
Steve Stricker, David Toms, David Frost, and more. The best professional golfers in the world choose to participate in the
John Deere Classic and when you are in the crowd for a day at the tournament you will understand exactly why. TPC Deere Run
is one of the premiere golf courses in the world, and just being able to walk on the grounds is well worth the trip to Silvis,
Golf is a great spectator sport and it can be enjoyable sitting at home watching
it on your fancy television but nothing compares to actually being on the course and feeling the tension in the air as the
top golfers in the world make their approach looking to make a big move up the leader board. Walking a world class course
on a stunning summer afternoon and witnessing the top golfers in the world go up against one another is a thrill you will
remember forever and one which will likely have you wanting to never once again settle for watching from your couch again.
As the tournament continues, the nervous tension builds and each stroke becomes more and more important. The drama builds
and this can be felt both by the golfers and the fans following them from hole to hole holding their breath with each approach
to the ball.
Michelle Wie was given an exemption to participate in the John Deere Classic in 2004
and 2005 while she was still a teenager, making those two of the most publicized events in the history of the tournament.
Last year's John Deere Classic was won by Jordan Spieth a few months prior to him turning 20, and he became the first teenager
to win the tournament since 1931.
