Scott Verplank makes his 11th career John Deere Classic appearance this week and tees it up via his top 50 on the PGA TOUR career money list exemption.
Verplank is 7-for-10 at the Deere, with five top 10s, the last coming in the 2009 weather-plagued edition, finishing T9. He's played the event only sporadically since, WD/2011, MC/2013, and didn't play the tournament at all between 2001 and 2008. The TOUR veteran, who is making his 641st career start this week, has cashed one time (T69, Humana Challenge) in nine starts on the season. Verplank, 29th on the career money list, hasn't recorded a top 10 since 2011. The 50-year-old, who turns 51 on July 9th, has made five starts on the Champions Tour this year, highlighted by a T4-finish at the Senior PGA Championship in May.
