Bryson DeChambeau wins John Deere Classic

OurQuadCities.com has everything you need to stay on top of the action

Bryson DeChambeau edged Patrick Rodgers to win the John Deere Classic on Sunday in Silvis. 

DeChambeau hit a clutch birdie on No. 18 to pull into a tie at 18-under with Rodgers, who still had two holes to go. The ball rolled up to the hole at just the right speed but possibly a little right, then dropped left into the cup at the last second.

Rodgers finished with a bogey on No. 17 and missed a chip for birdie by four inches on No. 18 to clinch the title for DeChambeau, who shot 65 on Sunday.

"I've just been working so hard my whole life to try and do this, and to finally have it happen at the John Deere, where I started, pretty much, a couple years ago is just incredible," an emotional DeChambeau told CBS Sports on Local 4 WHBF-TV. "I can't thank Clair Peterson enough for what he's done, giving me an exemption a couple years ago. It's a pretty cool honor."

But I can tell you want more. So here are links to additional coverage from earlier this week, pulled from 4 before 4, our daily news wrap-up to get you ready for Local 4 News at 4. There has been so much golf coverage this week we should have renamed it 4 before... fore! 

Friday

+ It's cut day at the John Deere Classic, and it's been hovering around 2-under. Charles Howell III was the co-leader after the first round, and no one in the morning went beyond a stroke past him before he teed off alongside Zach Johnson, who continued his impressive JDC play. Howell's partner at the top, Ollie Schniederjans, shot a 74. Meanwhile, two golfers with local ties and large galleries got their first taste of the PGA Tour.

The John Deere Classic brings money, exposure and thousands of people to the entire Quad Cities area. How much? James Sears found out. 

Want to see the JDC in style? Redrick Terry tells you where to go. Our featured volunteer Joe Cavins will watch your car. Want to keep an eye on scores while on the go? Use our leaderboard. 

Speaking of luxury, have you seen inside the charter jet the golfers take to British Open? Carie Kuehn has.

The third entry of Jim Niedelman's Fantastic Four at TPC Deere Run is Timber Ridge, and it brings the lumber with a side of sand. Skip the beach vacation.

Thursday

+ There are still plenty of golfers on the course for Round 1. Charles Howell III is the leader at 8-under 63 after the morning round, with three others two shots behind. You can follow along if you're not at TPC Deere Run -- or even if you are -- on our live leaderboard.

+ In Silvis, home to TPC Deere Run, it's not just the businesses that benefit. James Sears has the story.

Zach Johnson likes the John Deere Classic. And he usually plays well. So he may or may not have been this writer's pick to win when put on the spot by Adam Rossow this morning.

 

 

 

+ We have so much John Deere Classic coverage, I'm not sure it all fits on one page. But we tried. And just in case, we've compiled all of the JDC links from the past week here.

Wednesday

+ The John Deere Classic had a wet start this morning. Take a peek at the forecast for the next few days.

Zach Johnson was back at the course and he brought a traveling companion: The Ryder Cup. Defending champion Ryan Moore met the media as well. A name you might not know but is just as vital to the tourney is today's featured volunteer: Carol "CJ" Johnson.

It was rainy today, but the kids were alright on "Youth Day" Tuesday. Redrick Terry was there.

Monday

+ It's John Deere Classic week, and the Agronomy team at TPC Deere Run has been preparing for this tournament since the end of last year's: "We're just ready to go and attack whatever's presented to us," said TPC Deere Run Superintendent Alex Stuedemann. Tournament chair Pat Shouse says it's the little details that make all the difference during the JDC. For the pros, is it the superfoods?
