 That includes 40-year-old Charley Hoffman, who finished 8th in the U.S. Open last week.

Several others include 26-year-old Harold Varner III, who has three top-25 finishes this year, and 2016 John Deere Classic Champion Ryan Moore. 

This is the 47th annual John Deere Classic tournament. It'll take place from July 10th through the 16th.

  • Daniel Berger, defending champion of the FedEx St. Jude tournament in Memphis
  • Harris English, 27
  • Chris Kirk, 32, four-time PGA tour winner
