John Deere Classic

In another week of exciting golf on the PGA Tour, Steve Stricker managed to come out on top. According to pgatour.com, the players had to play 36 holes on Sunday due to a rain delay earlier in the week. However, this did not stop Stricker from producing a stellar performance.

Stricker started very slowly shooting an even par 71 in the first round. This was a pretty uneventful round that only had 2 birdies. He immediately had ground to make up as his colleagues were well under par. This would not be a problem as Stricker came out firing in the second round. He made 9 birdies, an eagle and a bogey on his way to a blistering 61(10 under par).With this he tied the course record and put himself in perfect position to win the tournament.

Stricker, as reported on the PGA Tour website,fired a a third-round 68 which he then followed with a 7-under 64 in the fourth round to finish at 264 for the tournament. That was good enough to give him his second PGA TOUR win this year and sixth in all, not to mention a heavy dose of momentum heading into the British Open to go with the 500 FedExCup points."I've just given myself a lot of chances to win," said Stricker onn the PGA Tour website, now second behind Tiger Woods in the FedExCup standings. "Some didn't go my way, and some have."

Local favorite Zach Johnson (64, 66), Brandt Snedeker (68, 65) and Brett Quigley (62, 67) all tied for second at 17 under. However the PGA tour website clearly stated that Stricker's biggest challenge, though, came from Tim Petrovic, who was in his group and was two strokes off the lead heading into the 36th and final hole of the day. But he hit the pond on No. 18 and double bogeyed the hole, leaving him at 16 under along with Matt Jones (63, 69) and J.J. Henry (66, 68). Second-round leader Darron Stiles (70, 71) finished at 14 under.
