The John Deere Classic is the PGA Tour's Quad Cities event, with the tournament having been played in Illinois as an event mostly for up-and-coming players.

The event, which has been on the PGA Tour schedule since 1971, is hosted at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill. The event has grown over the years but has long had tremendous community support regardless of its place on the schedule.

The event is typically one of the final events before the PGA Tour heads to the British Isles for the Open Championship.

D.A. Weibring and Steve Stricker each share the most victories in the event's history, with three wins. Scott Hoch, David Frost, Deane Beman and Jordan Spieth each have two wins.

John Deere Classic format

The John Deere Classic is played over four days, and there is a cut for the qualifying field.

The open field of 156 players is reduced to the top 65 and ties for the final two rounds of the event. At the end of the 72-hole event, the lowest score wins.
