Golf and basketball are two very different sports, but a pair of Stanford standouts think the two worlds come together beautifully at Deere Run.
Midwest native Patrick Rodgers has had quite a following at the John Deere Classic, including a very familiar local face from his college days, Chasson Randle.
Randle, a former Rock and current Stanford hoops standout, had never golfed and had never been to the John Deere Classic. When he realized Rodgers would be in the Quad Cities, he quickly made plans to show up and support his friend.
The two Stanford standouts say they will continue to support each other when they can.
“I’d love give him some golf lessons, if he can help me with my jump shot,” Rodgers said.
