Luke Guthrie has local following all throughout John Deere Classic

Luke Guthrie, from Quincy, Illinois, had a solid week at the 2015 John Deere Classic.

The Illini grad got his Sunday off right with a 13-foot birdie on Hole 1.  Guthrie got to 13-under with that shot.

On Hole 14, Guthrie was at it again, with his second shot landing about 16-inches from the cup. This put Guthrie at 14-under par, and that’s where he ended the tournament, tied for 14th.

Throughout the week, Guthrie had quite a following. People from Quincy came out to support him during his run at the JDC.
