Before golfers even started teeing-off around 7 a.m., some fans were already gathered at Deere Run for some of the best seats.

At 9 a.m. Sunday, July 13 people were already setting up chairs around hole 18, hours before any golfers would show up there.

Fan Gary Ince said he got to the course at 6:30 a.m., but said the long wait was worth it. It’s his first year, but seeing some great local golf is an experience he says he wouldn’t give up for anything.
