Defending John Deere Classic champion, Jordan Spieth, teed off at noon with four amateurs on Pro Am day at Deere Run.

The #10 ranked golfer in the world was only 19 years old when he took the win at Deere Run in 2013 after battling Zach Johnson and David Hearn in four playoff holes. Spieth became the youngest golfer to win on PGA Tour in 82 years.

Wednesday, July 9, 2014 Spieth was out on the green with Sam Allen, Lance Barrow, Jim Singerling, and Divot Ekizian. Allen is chairman and CEO of Deere & Company.

Spieth tees off Thursday at 12:45 p.m. with Stewart Cink and Steve Stricker- who won the 2009, 2010, and 2011 championships.
