 NOTES:
      Michael Clark birdied the fourth playoff hole from eight-feet to
 defeat Kirk Triplett last year and capture his first career PGA Tour title.
 Sunday's final round was delayed three times and finally suspended due to
 inclement weather with 27 players remaining on the course. On Monday, Clark
 completed his round first, carding a four-under 67 to reach 19-under par for
 the tournament, but could only stand by as Triplett, who led after 54-holes,
 drilled a seven-foot birdie putt on the final hole to force the playoff. Both
 players parred the first extra hole and birdied the next two playoff holes. On
 the fourth extra hole, Clark placed his second shot eight-feet short of the
 hole while Triplett's approach missed the green to the right. Triplett chipped
 to within two-feet, but Clark made the putt for the win. With the win, Clark
 became the 14th player in tournament history to make the John Deere Classic
 his first career win. D.A. Weibring, Scott Hoch and David Frost are the only
 multiple winners of this event, with Frost as the only player to win two
 consecutive years. Frost and Hoch are the only wire-to-wire winners of this
 event. Weibring, who tied for 33rd last year, is a three-time winner of this
 event and is the course designer. Weibring has played 79 official rounds at
 the John Deere Classic with 50 of them in the 60's and 58 have been at par-
 or-better. Weibring, who is trying to become the first course designer to win
 on his own design since Jack Nicklaus captured the 1984 Memorial, is the all-
 time leading money winner at this event with $631,087 in earnings. After 25
 straight years at Oakwood Country Club, the tournament moved to the TPC at
 Deere Run last year. Crow Valley Country Club in Iowa hosted this event the
 first three years of its existence. The purse was increased by $200,000 from
 last year. There have been five playoffs in the tournament's 29-year history,
 including the last two years. The PGA Tour moves west for The International

 at Castle Rock, Colorado next week where Ernie Els will defend his title.
