NOTES
Steve Stricker is the two-time defending champion this week after a 2010 event that saw records fall. Stricker established a new 54-hole PGA Tour record with his 25-under 188. He missed the 72-hole record by four shots when he only managed a one-under 70 on Sunday. It was Stricker`s second win of 2010. Paul Goydos became the fourth player in PGA Tour history to fire a 59 when he did it in the first round. He also became just the second player to shoot golf`s magical number and lose. Chip Beck had a 59 and tied for third at the 1991 Las Vegas Invitational. Stuart Appleby also had a 59 last year en route to victory at The Greenbrier Classic. This week will serve as the final tune-up for next week`s British Open at Royal St. George`s. The defending champion of the Open Championship, Louis Oosthuizen, will play at the John Deere as a warm-up. Golf Channel has the action the first two days, followed by CBS on the weekend. Next week is the Open Championship, but for those not qualified, there`s the Viking Classic.
