Nick Watney in contention at John Deere Classic


It’s been seven years since Nick Watney last won on the PGA Tour. That drought could end on Sunday for the former Fresno State golfer, assuming he has another great round at the John Deere Classic.

Watney, whose last PGA Tour win was at The Barclays in 2012, has had three really good rounds so far this week: 68-67-64. He was bogey-free on Saturday for the second day in a row.

“I played really steady,” said Watney, who had seven birdies on his card on Saturday. “Didn’t really have too much stress out there and putted very nicely. All in all, everything was pretty solid.”

Watney (-14) finished the day tied for fifth place. He is two shots off the lead held by Cameron Tringale (-16) and Andrew Landry (-16). If Nick Watney does come from behind to win on Sunday, he will win for the sixth time on the PGA Tour (as well as qualify for next week’s Open Championship).
