A golfer from Cedar Rapids with ties to the Quad Cities has won a high honor from the PGA Tour. Today, the tour and Southern Company announced Zach Johnson is this year's recipient of the Payne Stewart Award. 

The John Deere Classic will not be played this summer. Thursday tournament officials announced the cancelation of what would have been the 50th PGA Tour event in the Quad Cities, and the 21st at TPC Deere Run in Silvis.

As the PGA Tour adjusts to the coronavirus, those in charge of the John Deere Classic are prepared to be flexible. In April, the tour announced four tournaments will be held without spectators in June. Then the second week of July, the Deere Classic in Silvis might be the first tournament with fans.

Even though a number of tournaments have been cancelled or postponed because of COVID-19, the John Deere Classic is still on the PGA Tour's revised schedule.

Most tournaments in March, April, and May were postponed or cancelled.

But so far, the classic at TPC Deere Run in Silvis will be held the second week of July, its original date.
