Making the cut: Luke Guthrie at the John Deere, a ‘hometown’ event
Luke Guthrie is in his third season on the PGA Tour following a stellar career at the University of Illinois. He is fighting for his PGA Tour livelihood as he currently stands 138th on the FedEx Cup points list and only the top 125 at regular season’s end in August are guaranteed to retain their Tour cards. The 25-year-old Quincy, Illinois native is accompanied on his travels by his older brother Zach, a former college golfer and assistant golf coach at Illinois. Zach serves as Luke’s full-time caddie on Tour, a partnership that has allowed the siblings to form a close bond. Luke and Zach have agreed to share their experiences on the road as the sibling team attempts to remain – and hopefully thrive — on the PGA Tour.
