The annual run of the John Deere Classic will take place this week and provide you with a chance to make some serious cash. With few big names participating, the field is pretty much wide open with the favorite in Jordan Spieth opening up at +900.
Here are a few names that you should include on your card for this week’s event.
USA TODAY Sports
Zach Johnson – Johnson always treats this course like home considering he’s from Iowa. This is always a big event for him and he’s followed it up with four Top 5 finishes since 2009. Johnson also won the event in 2012 and came extremely close to doubling down last year but fell just short. It’s fair to say Johnson is having one of his best seasons of the PGA tour, as he already has one win under his belt and has four Top 10 finishes in 18 played events. Johnson hasn’t done well lately, as he hasn’t shot under par since the Players Championship back in May. However, he’s had plenty of rest and given his history at this event, you can’t help but throw some money his way with odds of +1000.
Kevin Na – If you’re looking for a bigger underdog, Na is your guy. Na hasn’t played well in his last two events and was an even bigger disappointment in the Greenbrier Classic. However, even with those struggles, Na has finished in the Top 25 in 10 of his 19 events and in the Top 10 five times. This cooling off period has opened up the odds to +3000, but it’s well worth a shot in the dark if you think he can return to his earlier form. Na hasn’t played this course since 2008 and maybe the return will help him get back on track.
Ryan Moore - How can you not take Moore with odds of +2000 staring you in the face? Not only has Moore been consistent with five Top 10 finishes in 17 events played, but he’s 17th in driving accuracy percentage, which is going to help him tremendously on this course. Of course, the John Deere Classic is nothing new to Moore, as he has finished in the Top 25 in the last two times playing this course, including finishing eighth in 2012. Moore brings more value to the table than some of the bigger players with smaller lines.
