From the TPC Deere Run to Royal Birkdale

RSS

2006 John Deere ClassicIn an ongoing effort to draw a stronger field due the fact that it is scheduled just a week prior to the Open Championship, the organizers at the John Deere Classic now offer players set to compete across the pond next week a chartered 100-seat 767 jet airplane.
 
This is the same plane, by the way, that is used by the NBA's Dallas Mavericks, and it is able to whisk the players over the Atlantic and have them near Royal Birkdale by 8 a.m. on Monday morning.
 
Here's a list of the players schedule to use this benefit this Sunday:
 
Woody Austin
Aaron Baddeley
Rich Beem
Bart Bryant
Mark Calcavecchia
Tim Clark
David Duval
Lucas Glover
Todd Hamilton
J.B. Holmes
Zach Johnson
Jerry Kelly
Matt Kuchar
Doug LaBelle
Tom Lehman
