Can Steve Stricker pull off a four-peat -- a Stricker Slam, so to speak -- today at the John Deere Classic?
Good afternoon, golf fans. We've made it to Sunday and the final round of the John Deere Classic. And what a day it is for storylines. Here are some items you can chew on as you're watching the CBS coverage today (3 p.m. to 6 p.m. ET). ... 1. Can Troy Matteson go the distance for a wire-to-wire victory at TPC Deere Run? It would be his third PGA TOUR win. The last wire-to-wire winner on TOUR was Rory McIlroy at the 2011 U.S. Open. 2. Can Zach Johnson win his first title at his home event? It's one he badly wants, and it might just give him a leg up on Tiger Woods for PGA TOUR player of the year honors. It would be Johnson's second win and fourth top-two finish of the season. 3. And, of course, Steve Stricker. A victory would give him four in a row at the John Deere, and make him just the fifth player in history to accomplish the feat. Can he do it? 4. Also, what kind of boost would a four-peat give Stricker toward potential World Golf Hall of Fame induction? He is eligible for induction in 2013. 5. Jamie Lovemark. Playing on a major medical extention, he needs to win in order to retain his TOUR card. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
