Jordan Spieth is not defending his title, leaving Zach Johnson as the best player in the field. Johnson is grouped with past Deere winners Brian Harman and Steve Stricker for the first two rounds, going off at 8:20 a.m. from No. 10 in Round 1.

Jon Rahm, on the way to earning his PGA Tour card, is grouped with Abraham Ancer and Sam Saunders. They'll play in Round 1 at 2:10 p.m. from No. 10.
