2016 John Deere Classic TV times on Golf Channel and CBS


The 2016 John Deere Classic will be played at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill., moving from its typical pre-Open Championship date to being played opposite the men's Olympic golf tournament in Brazil. Jordan Spieth isn't defending his title, deciding it would be a bad look to skip the Olympics and then play this event instead. That leaves Zach Johnson as the field headliner along with three-time winner Steve Stricker.

Golf Channel has live coverage on Thursday and Friday, with CBS Sports taking over on the weekend afternoons.
