Andy Swales provides course and current form stats for this week's John Deere Classic in America's rural Midwest...


"Danny Lee was a podium finisher at Deere Run in 2015, and certainly seems to enjoy this time of year."

The PGA Tour heads for the Midwest and its 18th trip to TPC Deere Run.

This rural Illinois location is typically one of the lowest-scoring venues on the US calendar.

Opened in 1999, Deere Run was built on land once inhabited by native Americans. It is a lush, wooded, parkland course, with water hazards coming into play on only a handful of holes.

Given a face lift 10 years ago, the gently undulating, well-bunkered, Deere Run is once again the final stop before the players head across the Atlantic for next week's Open Championship.


Horses for Courses


Over the years, Deere Run has been a lucrative playground for both Zach Johnson and Steve Stricker.

Johnson has posted podium finishes in six of his last eight visits, although his current form is hardly inspiring - no strokeplay top-10 since early January.

Stricker, meanwhile, won a hat-trick of John Deere Classic titles from 2009 to 2011.

Others with reasonable course form include Kevin Na and Scott Brown. While Na has played reasonably OK recently, the latter has posted just one top-25 finish since March.

Johnson Wagner has registered three straight top 10s at TPC Deere Run, and tied-fifth in Maryland two weeks ago.

Defending champion Ryan Moore has a very strong course record but has not teed-up since early June because of a shoulder injury.


Men of the Moment


Daniel Berger, whose last three starts include both a victory and a runner-up slot, will be making his Deere Run debut this Thursday.

Another in-form pro is Danny Lee who has enjoyed four top-10s from his most recent seven starts.

The New Zealander was a podium finisher at Deere Run in 2015, and certainly seems to enjoy this time of year.

And why not consider a third 'Dan' in the shape of Daniel Summerhays. Not the most consistent of performers, although his record in Illinois is fairly strong.

Finally, Kevin Streelman will arrive under the radar. The American, whose form has flickered tantalisingly in recent weeks, is a two-time top-10 performer at the JD Classic although not since 2012.
