Golf fans in the Quad Cities may not get to see a few of their favorites play in person next year. Today, the John Deere Classic announced the PGA Tournament will be held the second week of August instead of July because golf will return to the Olympics.
Non-profits in the Quad Cities area hope golfers score even more birdies during the John Deere Classic. This morning at Deere headquarters in Moline, the PGA tournament kicked off the 2016 Birdies for Charity campaign. Nearly 500 non-profits will ask for donations. And most people pledge a penny per birdie scored in the Pro-Am plus the official four rounds.
