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

"Two golfers who have remarkable records at TPC Deere Run are Zach Johnson and veteran Steve Stricker."

The PGA Tour travels from West Virginia to Illinois for the 20th staging of the John Deere Classic.

And you will hardly find a more rural location on Tour than TPC Deere Run.

Situated in America's Midwest, Deere Run was built during the late 1990s by former Tour pro DA Weibring.

It is a lush, parkland venue, with plenty of sand and numerous subtle changes in elevation and direction.

Water hazards are not a major issue, although there are plenty of trees and dense wooded areas to penalise errant shots.

Since the tournament was first staged at Deere Run in 2000, the highest winning total has been 268, with only one of the last nine champions posting a 72-hole total greater than 265.

Once again, it is the final event before next week's Open Championship at Carnoustie and the quality of field has suffered as a result.

Usual Suspects

Two golfers who have remarkable records at Deere Run are Zach Johnson and veteran Steve Stricker.

In addition to his victory in 2012, Johnson has finished runner-up three times and third twice.

Stricker, now 51, won here three years in a row and has posted four other top 10s.

Last year Johnson and Stricker both tied-for-fifth, and continue to be contenders over this Illinois layout.

Another course specialist and former champion is Ryan Moore, winner two years ago.

Moore finished in a tie-for-13th on Sunday at The Greenbrier, where he fell away on day four after posting rounds of 66-67-67.

Form Horse

Few pros, if any, are playing better right now than Francesco Molinari and the Italian makes his Deere Run debut this Thursday.

However, it is puzzling to understand why Molinari has chosen to play in the States, with The Open just around the corner.

Defending champion Bryson DeChambeau is another in-form golfer, while Brandt Snedeker enjoyed his highest finish on American soil for almost two years, on Sunday, when he stood on the podium in West Virginia.

Snedeker makes his first Deere Run appearance since 2009 when he finished runner-up.

The stats suggest Brian Gay and Wesley Bryan could contend this week, while Deere Run debutant Austin Cook has posted two top-six finishes in his last three starts.
