The PGA Tour is currently underway at Silvis, Illinois, for the John Deere Classic. The tournament is making a comeback to the PGA Tour after a year. John Deere Classic was suspended last year due to Covid-19. The TPC Deere Run is the host of the tournament, but this year the field is deprived of star players as most of the top-ranked golfers are playing at the Scottish Open or preparing for the British Open.
