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.

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.
