SILVIS, Ill. (AP) -- Steve Stricker might be the only golfer on the PGA Tour who isn't peeking ahead to Muirfield and next week's British Open.
Stricker's single-minded focus on TPC Deere Run, combined with his recent dominance of the course, makes him the man to beat at this weekend's John Deere Classic.
The 46-year-old Stricker is skipping the Open Championship as part of a plan to spend more time with his family. But Stricker won the John Deere Classic three times from 2009-11. He's not about to pass on a shot at a fourth title just down the road in Illinois
Stricker and native Iowan Zach Johnson headline a field left a bit thin because many of the world's top golfers are preparing for the British Open.
