Stricker looks for fourth consecutive Deere title with Villegas, Stanley

Steve Stricker begins his search of a fourth consecutive John Deere Classic title on Thursday at 12:45 p.m. local time in Silvis, Ill. Stricker goes off the first tee at TPC Deere Run with Kyle Stanley and Camilo Villegas.

Last week's winner, Ted Potter Jr., gets moved up to a feature grouping with Zach Johnson and Nick Watney. The trio goes off at 7:30 a.m. from the 10th tee.

The group after Potter may be the other with the most star power. Stewart Cink, K.J. Choi and Jonathan Byrd are on the tee at 7:40 a.m.

Jordan Spieth, the low amateur from the U.S. Open, starts at 8:50 a.m. from the 10th tee with Ed Loar and Zack Miller.

John Daly is enjoying a minor renaissance of late, posting consecutive top-20 finishes on the PGA Tour. He is grouped with Ken Duke and Daniel Summerhays from the 10th tee at 1:35 p.m.
