In a recent piece for PGATour.com, golf expert Stan Awtry noted that getting a top-five finish at the John Deere Classic may be enough for some to make the final cut for the Open Championship. One of those is Australian Jason Day, who has yet to earn a start time at St. Andrews.
"Granted, it's last minute - sort of like doing your Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve - but there remains hope for all who haven't yet qualified," Awtry wrote about qualifying through the John Deere Classic.
According to the website dedicated to the Classic, 156 players from the PGA Tour will compete for a $4.4 million purse. Last year's winner was Steve Stricker.
While golfers are vying for a chance at the money and potential for qualification in the Open, local charities also benefit from the John Deere Classic. In 2009, $4.63 million was donated to various organizations.
