John Deere Classic Predictions
The PGA Tour is moving to Illinois this week, and our golf cappers have provided, as usual, their complete preview and their best bets to place on this tournament that is played at TPC Deere Run.
Key Stat: Rodgers has now finished tied 35th or better in the last five tournaments
- He ended tied 18th in the Canadian Open and was eight at The Country Club after 36 holes
- Course form is a great indicator here
- He will be refreshed after taking some rest after the US Open
Many players decided to rest after the US Open, which was probably a good idea. This is what Patrick Rodgers did as well, as he pulled out of the TPC River Highlands. He ended tied 18th in the Canadian Open and was eight at The Country Club after 36 holes. At the US Open he finished 31st, which is a decent result, and we expect he will continue his positive trajectory in the John Deere Classic.
His recent form has been excellent, as he finished in the top 10 at the Mexico Open and has now finished tied 35th or better in the last five tournaments. Rodgers likes this event and course, as he finished in the top 15 in 2013, was second in 2017 and tied 23rd previous year. He is ranking 27th for SG: Putting this season and 70th Off The Tee, so this course should suit him well. At this price, it makes complete sense to back him to go all the way.
Key Stat: Adam Schenk finished tied fourth and tied sixth in 2021 and 2019
- He comes here in decent form as he was tied 26th at Memorial and tied 24th at Brookline
- In 2019 he ranked second for SG: Tee To Green
- In 2021, he ended second for SG: Putting
Form course seems to be an essential thing to consider at TPC Deere, and for this reason, we cannot forget Adam Schenk, who finished tied fourth and tied sixth in 2021 and 2019 (the 2020 edition didn’t take place). He also comes here in decent form as he was tied 26th at Memorial and tied 24th at Brookline. Additionally, Schenk is from Indiana, which is one of the Midwest states, and should feel at home here. In 2019 he ranked second for SG: Tee To Green, while in 2021, he ended second for SG: Putting. So we expect him to be in contention, and he looks like a very interesting betting option at this high price.
