Free tips for the John Deere Classic (6th to 9th July)

This week we’re looking at golf’s John Deere Classic, an iconic event in the calendar which takes place in Illinois. It may not have the best players in the world in the line-up but, for regular PGA Tour players, this represents a great chance to get a win or a top 10 finish under their belt before they head over to England to take part in the next Major, The Open.

Denny McCarthy heads the betting following his impressive recent form. Second in the Memorial Tournament, losing narrowly in a play-off to Victor Hovland was a strong consistent display from the American and he followed that up finishing top 20 in the US Open and top seven in the Travellers Championship.

McCarthy is one to follow this week for sure as he is playing excellent golf and with a ranking now of 33rd in the PGA Tour – he is likely to be in the race for a big tournament win soon. He should like this course where knowing how to play at the business end of the tournament is key and he has no problems in shooting well across four rounds having mixed it with the best recently.

JT Poston won the tournament last year with an impressive -23. He hasn’t hit those heights again recently so will have to look to revisit that form to be in the mix come Sunday evening.

One player who is playing well this year and finished runner up last year is Emiliano Grillo. He won the Charles Schwab Challenge a few months ago and was a top 15 finisher at Travellers, so is one to consider here.

Another player who has hit a recent run of form is Lucas Glover. He was 4th in the Rocket Mortgage Classic and won this event in 2021, so is also one to follow at bigger odds.

Canadian Adam Hadwin played great golf last week in the Rocket Mortgage Classic and is set to line up this week as one of the favourites in the betting. Finishing -24 for the week got Hadwin into a play-off, but Rickie Fowler managed to birdie the first play-off hole to win.

Best Each-Way Odds

Looking at the best each-way odds in the market, we have 1/5 the odds, 10 places with Coral and Ladbrokes and 1/5 the odds, 8 places generally with Paddy Power, William Hill, SkyBet and Boylesports.

Our Selections

Emiliano Grillo at 28/1 with Paddy Power (1/5 odds, 8 places) – 1pt e/w

Emiliano Grillo is a winner on the PGA Tour this year and can put himself in the mix this week with a top display. Runner up last year, Grillo likes the way this course is set out and knowing how to get over the line in the final round is crucial.

Lucas Glover at 60/1 with William Hill (1/5 odds, 8 places) – 0.5pt e/w

Finishing tied 4th last week in the Rocket Mortgage Classic and playing some great golf will give Glover the confidence he needs to come into this week and perform well. He won this tournament in 2021 so has a great shot at repeating this.
