Stricker, last year's John Deere Classic winner, in the hunt again

Posted by Green Fun Store on 7/9/2010
The second round of the John Deere Classic saw a familiar face, as last year's winner Steve Stricker notched a 66.

The 5-under par score was enough to tie Stricker with Paul Goydos for first, although the latter was in the midst of completing his own second round of golf. Stricker hit 11-under par in his first round, which put him a stroke behind Goydos at the start of the day.

Goydos spotted an impressive 59 during the first round of the John Deere Classic, a feat that has only been accomplished four times in the history of the PGA Tour. The other three golfers who managed to hit that mark were David Duval in 1999, Chip Beck in 1991 and Al Geiberger in 1977.

Still, there is plenty of golf to play, with two more rounds yet to be started. The John Deere Classic wraps on Sunday afternoon and posts a $4.4 million purse for the golfer who manages to come out on top. In all, 156 players are trying to claim the prize that Stricker seized last year.ADNFCR-3425-ID-19884017-ADNFCR
