John Deere Classic Round 1 Live Blog: Latest news, updates from TPC Deere Run


The John Deere Classic begins Thursday at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill., as several PGA Tour rookies and younger players highlight the field.

Matthew Wolff, 20, won the 3M Open last week in just his fourth PGA Tour start and became the ninth-youngest Tour winner since 1900 the process. Now an official member of the Tour at least through 2020-21, Wolff joins 3M Open co-runner up Collin Morikawa and fellow rookie Viktor Hovland among the betting favorites.

TPC Deere Run will play at 7,268 yards and par-71 this week. And while the JDC has been a Tour stop since 1971 (it began as the Quad Cities Open), this week’s event has morphed into a showcase of some of the best young golfers in the world.

A Haskins Award winner, Wolff  joined Tiger Woods and Ben Crenshaw as the only golfers to win an individual NCAA championship and a PGA Tour event in the same year.

He was still trying to absorb his new status in the golf world after his victory last week. He shot 62-65 (15-under) on the weekend and finished at 21-under to beat Bryson DeChambeau and Morikawa by 1 shot.

“I still can’t believe it. It was a pretty awesome experience, and something that’s probably not going to settle in for a little bit,” he said this week.
