Stricker prevails again at John Deere Classic

Posted by Green Fun Store on 7/12/2010 to Current News/Events of John Deere
After days of competition, Steve Stricker managed to continue last year's dominance at the John Deere Classic this weekend.

Stricker finished at 26-under par, a new record for the John Deere Classic. He managed to finish two strokes ahead of Paul Goydos in defending his 2009 title. Yet, the 43-year-old is already contemplating next year's tournament.

"You know, it's a long ways away," Stricker said. "We've got a year to go, but it would be fun to come back and try."

Both Stricker and Goydos, who shot 24-under par, managed to eclipse the previous record of 22-under held by J.P. Hayes. The latter set that mark in 2002, the year he also won the John Deere Classic.

Although he didn't win the John-Deere sponsored tournament, Goydos did manage to notch his name in the record books based on his performance in the first round. He joined four other players who have recorded a 59 in a round of PGA TOUR play. The other three to do it were David Duval, Chip Beck and Al Geiberger.

In all, 156 people competed in the John Deere Classic, which offered a $4.4 million purse.ADNFCR-3425-ID-19885821-ADNFCR
