The John Deere Classic is an American professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour. It is played annually in July, the week before the British Open, at the TPC at Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois.

The tournament began as the Quad Cities Open in 1971 and was a "satellite event" on the PGA Tour. It became an official PGA Tour event in 1972. Title sponsors have included Ed McMahon (1974 79), Miller Brewing Company (1982 85), Hardee's (1986 94) and John Deere (since 1999).

From the event's inception in 1971 through 1974, it was played at Crow Valley Country Club in Davenport, Iowa. It then moved to Oakwood Country Club in Coal Valley, Illinois from 1975 to 1999. Since 2000, the event has been at the TPC at Deere Run in Silvis.

In recent years, the tournament has been able to generate more television air time and press because of the sponsor's exemptions given to teenager Michelle Wie. In 2005, the tournament's storyline also revolved around young American golfer Sean O'Hair. His win qualified him to play in the British Open the following week and was a significant part of his PGA Rookie of the Year season.

The John Deere Classic has received permission by the PGA Tour to remain a yearly tour stop through the year 2010. After the shuffling of tournament sponsors, it is possible that in that time the Classic could have its date moved. If its usual date (the week before the British Open) is changed, the tournament may attract stronger fields.
