Three pars in his final six holes, added to his eagle on the 2nd, took Brandon Todd into a one-shot lead going into the final day, It is the sixth time he has been ahead in a tour event after 54 holes, and twice previously he has gone on to win.

To make it a third time, he will have to fend off a lot of close challengers as 13 players are within three shots of the lead. Nearest are Alex Smalley, Denny McCarthy and Adam Schenk, one shot back in joint second, None of this trio have won on the PGA Tour.

Nor has Cameron Young, who infamously has the joint record for most runner-up finishes (6) without ever winning.

Coming the week before the Scottish Open which in turn is followed by The Open Championship, the John Deere Classic has struggled to attract the biggest golfing names who are instead prioritising preparation for Royal Liverpool.

For example, of the three players who contested the playoff for the Rocket Mortgage Classic, only Adam Hadwim is in Illinois this week. But then he is also the only member of that trio who has not qualified for The Open.

One who will be at Royal Liverpool and who is at TPC Deere Run is defending champion JT Poston, the first John Deere Classic wire-to-wire winner since David Frost in 1992.

Winning scores tend to be low. The highest since the event moved to TPC Deere Run in 2000 is 16-under. In 2018 Michael Kim won by eight strokes on 27-under. This beat Steve Stricker’s 26-under winning score in 2010, the middle year of his three consecutive victories in the event.

Another notable multiple winner is Jordan Spieth, who in 2013 here became the first teenage winner on the PGA Tour since 1931.

Archaeologists have proved that Native Americans lived on this property 5,000 years ago. The most famous hole is the par-3 16th, named Mother Earth, with its green perched on on a bluff 40ft above the Rock River. The official course guide explains: “To Native Americans, the land is a living being, Mother Earth, who cares for all her children, providing them with food, shelter, beauty, and a place for contest and play. The 16th hole is dedicated to these earliest inhabitants.”
