Madison's Steve Stricker played 36 holes of excellent golf on Sunday to capture the PGA Tour's John Deere Classic.
After a 3-under par 68 in round 3 to start the day, Stricker finished with a 7-under par 64, good for his second win on the PGA Tour this year and the sixth overall. Stricker also has momentum heading into this week's British Open.
Stricker's 20-under par total was 3-shots better than Zach Johnson, Brandt Snedeker and Brett Quigley, who all finished at 17-under par. Quiqley's total earned him a spot in this week's British Open.
Stricker started the day three shots off the lead after moving into second place on Saturday with a 10-under par 61, which tied the course record set by fellow Wisconsin native J.P. Hayes, who won the 2002 title.
His best shot camme on the par-4 6th hole in the final round, when his 98-yard approach shot spun back into the hole for an eagle.
