The John Deer Classic is always an interesting tournament as it falls exactly one week before the British Open each year. Some players choose to sit it out and focus on the following week while others choose to tee off and use the event as a warm up or confidence builder before they head to Europe. The John Deer Classic is played at TPC Deer Run in Silvis Illinois and is known to have similar names appear at the top of the leader board year after year. Some of those names include Zach Johnson, Daniel Summerhays, Ryan Moore and Jordan Spieth. Spieth won the event in 2013 when he was just 19 years old after edging out Zach Johnson and David Hearn in a playoff. Zach Johnson won the event the previous year and would go on to finish 2nd place again in 2014. Suffice to say Zach Johnson plays really well on this course. But Jordan Spieth is playing out of his mind lately and also likes this course. Spieth's golf confidence has to be through the roof after a huge US Open win in chambers bay two weeks ago. Sportsbooks feel the same posting odds of only 4.00 for Spieth and 9.00 for Zach Johnson. I can't say I've seen odds this low to win a PGA tour event for any golfer since Tiger Woods was still a contender.
