John Deere Classic Begins Monday

For the 49th year, some of the world's best golfers are coming to the Quad Cities. The John Deere Classic begins Monday at TPC Deere Run in Silvis.

And it'll be the 20th year in a row that the PGA tournament has been held at TPC Deere Run.

Last year's winner, Michael Kim will return to defend his title - in 2018 he set a course record when he finished at 27 under par. 

The John Deere Golf Pro-Am will be held on Monday, followed by Youth Day and the Youth Clinic on Tuesday, along with practice rounds for the professional golfers.

Wednesday will feature the John Deere Classic Pro-Am, and the Dustin Lynch Charity Concert, followed by the first round of the PGA tournament on Thursday. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
