Line-Up Starts to Take Shape For John Deere Classic

Several top-tier golfers have committed to this year's John Deere Classic, including some previous champions.  

Last year's winner Ryan Moore will return, along with 2014's Brian Harman. Kevin Kisner, who recently won the Dean & Deluca Invitational, and Si Woo Kim, winner of this year's Players Championship will compete. 

Four other previous John Deere Classic champions will also return. 

The tournament has also invited some promising amateur players - granting sponsor exemptions to two from the University of Illinois, one from the University of Oregon, and another from Stanford.

Tournament Director Clair Peterson says he's expecting more commitments in the coming weeks, because many players make their decisions closer to the beginning of the tournament.

The John Deere Classic will begin at TPC Deere Run in Silvis on July 13th.
