2017 John Deere Classic Monday qualifiers, leaderboard

Cliff Kresge, Sam Horsfield, Matt Lee and Kurt Slattery all earned spots in the 2017 John Deere Classic through the Monday qualifier.

Kresge, Horsfield and Lee were co-medalists in the 18-hole event at Pinnacle Country Club in Iowa, all shooting 6-under 66.

Slattery was one of seven players who shot 67 to get into a seven-for-one playoff, including Aron Price, Steven Ihm, Justin Bryant, Jack Newman, Sean McCart and Matt Bettencourt. Slattery made an eagle on the final hole of the event to get in the playoff, then holed out from 44 yards on the first (and only) playoff hole for an eagle that locked up his spot in the tournament.

Kresge is 48 years old and has status on PGA Tour Latinoamerica, making one cut and withdrawing from another event in June. He hasn't played on the PGA Tour since 2013.

Sam Horsfield is a new-ish pro from England, a product of the University of Florida. He missed the cut two weeks ago at the Quicken Loans National on an invite.

Lee is a product of Pacific University, and the 23-year-old has struggled on PGA Tour Latinoamerica, missing all three cuts so far this season.
