John Deere Classic Betting Tips

John Deere Classic betting tips & predictionsJohn Deere Classic betting tips & predictions – the John Deere Classic is played at TPC Deere Run in the Quad Cities community of Silvis, Illinois. The tournament began as the Quad Cities Open in 1971 and was a “satellite event” on the PGA Tour. It became an official Tour event in 1972 and John Deere have been the title sponsors since 1999.

Since 2000 the event has been played at TPC Deere Run which was designed as a stadium course by DA Weibring. The course is a Par 71 that stretches to 7,200+ yards from the championship tees. Historically the John Deere Classic is played the week before the British Open.

In 2005 and 2006 the tournament generated much attention due to a sponsor’s exemption given to Michelle Wie. In 2013 Jordan Spieth was victorious two weeks before his 20th birthday to become the first teenager to win on the PGA Tour since 1931.

The John Deere Classic is a birdie-fest plain and simple, go low or go home. TPC Deere Run continually ranks among the easiest Par 71s on Tour and annually yields high percentages for both fairways hit and greens in regulation. How far and in which direction you hit the ball off the tee is basically immaterial. It’s all about aggressive play, accurate short irons and good putting.

Past results show that low scores are the norm and the average winning score since 2000 is -19. Steve Stricker won the tournament three years in a row from 2009 – 2011 and in 2010 he shot -26 (258). Key stats to consider when making a selection are Proximity to Hole, Strokes Gained Putting and Birdie Average.

Daniel Berger 12/1, Brian Harman 16/1 and Kevin Kisner 16/1 are the Bookmakers favourites for this week’s John Deere Classic
