Back in the day when the tournament was held at Oakwood Country Club there were often star-studded fields in Wednesday’s Pro-Am. Mr. Murray’s participation could be the catalyst to attract more celebrities to the field.
Having had the good fortune to have played at TPC Deere Run I can tell you two things first hand. First, the course is immaculate. The fairways are nicer than the greens at other courses I’ve played (not that I spend much time in fairways). Second, this is not an easy golf course. It’s pretty amazing to see the scores these guys are carding.
Some of the local favorites are poised to contend for the 2015 John Deere Classic title. Whoever ends up winning, let’s hope for an exciting day of golf and good weather.
