Movers: Guthrie, Brown, DiMarco

A trio of golfers are making a significant move up the leaderboard at the John Deere Classic. Luke Guthrie, the former University of Illinois athlete, carded a 7-under 64 to get to 16 under in only his second PGA TOUR event. He finished T19 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in his debut. Guthrie carded a 6-under 30 on the back nine, finishing with birdies on Nos. 17 and 18. Guthrie was the first golfer to win back-to-back Big Ten Conference men's titles since Luke Donald did it at Northwestern in 2000-01. He is also the first repeat champion at Illinois since Steve Stricker in 1988-89. Scott Brown, who had the shot of the day yesterday, is 4 under through 10 holes on Sunday and has reached 15 under, just three shots back. Chris DiMarco, who hasn't recorded a top-10 finish in 62 previous starts, opened birdie-eagle and was at  15 under through 10 holes.
