One and Done Selections – John Deere Classic

Alternative – Scott Stallings

No need to avoid the bush, the John Deere Classic is an event that always suffers from being held the week before the Open Championship. The field is less than superb if we’re honest with only five of the top 50 golfers in the world in attendance this week. I’m not interested in these players anyway (that’s the code for “I’ve used them in this competition”) as the Deere is always a birdie feast where the whole field comes into play.

Step into Seamus Power, a player who not so long ago picked Monday’s qualifiers to join the PGA Tour. The Irishman has played well enough in the past two months to be considered a legitimate threat at the TPC Deere Run. Power comes after a top-10 finish in Detroit last week – his second top-10 in his last four starts – and brings plenty of positive momentum to Illinois. He has done well on previous Deere starts, has a career average of 68.42 and has finished in the top 25 in two of his three previous starts on this layout.

It looks like we had nine events left (eight weeks in total) and I could probably make my life pretty easy if I played things more conservatively and introduced Russell Henley. Not only is the American one of the safest players on the board to win some cash at the John Deere Classic, but I also think there is a good chance someone will roll out the 32 year old in that particular game. That assumes, of course, that this competition hasn’t turned into a contrary dart throw where everyone tries to zap while I zap, but those are the game theory thoughts that go through my head as I try to play in this foursome. Match to make a selection.

My view of the board is this: first place this week pays a little over a million dollars, with a solo fifth bringing in just over $ 250,000. For me, this calls out to shoot for the moon with my selection, as anything that isn’t a top three achievement becomes a trivial payoff. With that in mind, I’ll take Aaron Wise – a golfer who can win the tournament if he gets the appearance of a putter.

Wise’s home course is TPC Summerlin – a venue that will mimic many of the quirks he’s getting at the TPC Deere Run this week, and I think his game will be as high as anyone else in the field if we remove his flat club. The former Oregon product ranks in my model’s top 20 for strokes won OTT + Approach, strokes won on simple courses overall, weighted curved play + birdie or better percentage, and is also in this area ranks third in this area in strokes won from tee to green. Some may argue that this is a bit too aggressive a choice, but I’m ready to roll the dice as there is a lack of star power at the top of the board.

What kind of field do we have to choose from this week? It’s hard to really trust any other guy in this area other than MAYBE Berger so I’m just going to try and catch a guy I won’t consider again in the future, but it could happen for a week . Kizzire usually struggles because a lot of the golf courses off the tee are challenging (especially length) and he just doesn’t have great play there. However, he does the rest of the game pretty well. This tournament has proven to be a birdie-making course, and Kizzire is one of them. He’s previously won two tournaments at birdie festivals and tends to hit the leaderboard at other events where we see the winner around 20-under. I think this is a good time to give a guy who’s previously won the tour a chance in a high-scoring environment, but to be completely honest I wouldn’t be surprised if he made the cut too lost.

It’s about getting into the Go Big or Go Home part of the schedule. I liked Scott last week and that hasn’t changed this week. He’s trending in every category for the last 6 tournaments. The most improved statistic is SG putting. If he can get hot with it, he can put birdies in with the best. Get em booths !!
