The Course

The Course is a 7, 257 yard, par-71 that offers up a multitude of birdie opportunities. Dating back to 2010, every winner her has shot -18 or better over the course of the tournament.


Bryson DeChambeau picked up his first PGA Tour win here a year ago by shooting a fantastic 65 in the final round after entering Sunday T5 along with Jamie Lovemark and J.J. Henry. DeChambeau beat out Patrick Rodgers by one stroke to secure the win. Ryan Moore won in 2016. Jordan Spieth won in both, 2015 and 2013. Brian Harman won in between Spieth’s victories by taking home the hardware in 2014.

My Top Three Picks

Zach Johnson

Johnson has made the cut in all nine of his appearances in this tournament while winning it in 2012 and recording a trio of second-place finishes. Johnson has also taken third place on two other occasions and has compiled an average score of 66.89. For me, Johnson is probably due to win another John Deere after coming oh so close on so many occasions.

Steve Stricker

Steve Striker won the John Deere an impressive three straight times from 2009-2011. I know he’s now, 51-years-old and not quite the same golfer that he was a few years ago when he won this event three straight times, but this course is perfect for him as it doesn’t favor the longest hitters off the tee. Besides, Stricker has a trio of top 20 finishes this year and for me, that makes him one of the best picks on the board at 20-1 odds.

Bryson DeChambeau

24-year-old California native Bryson DeChambeau took home the hardware at the Memorial in May by winning a three-way playoff. He’s also got a stellar five, top 5 finishes this year and two more top-10s. DeChambeau took second place in the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March and third place in the RBC Heritage in April and is one of the hottest golfers in the world this year.
