University of Illinois graduate Steve Stricker has won the last three John Deere Classics, and he's well within striking distance of claiming his fourth victory in a row on Sunday. Stricker will be in the final pairing, alongside leader Troy Matteson, but it won't be easy. Matteson has led after every day of the tournament and will enter Sunday 18-under par, three strokes ahead of Stricker.
