Hovland was a favorite coming into the tourney. This is like his 4th tournament ever. So, yes, it's not a good field. It's a very poor field.What an abysmal field at the John Deere. It should be an alternate event to the Scottish Open.
It won’t happen for a variety of reasons, mostly sponsor money, but I like NLU’s idea of making either the Irish or Scottish Open a WGC.
