Zach Johnson sells fellow pros on playing John Deere

Posted:

(Silvis, Illinois)(KWWL)--For the eighth straight year-- Zach Johnson is in the Quad Cities to play the John Deere Classic..a tournament that is obviously near and dear to his heart.

And besides the tournament being in close proximity to his hometown of Cedar Rapids-- Zach has another reason for being a little partial to Deere Run. Johnson actually serves on the John Deere Classic board of directors.

 Top players like Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson usually bypass the Deere Classic because it is just one week before the British Open. But Zach says there are many reasons why the tournament is appealing to most PGA pros--- with families. And Zach says he's always selling his fellow professionals on coming to Deere Run.
