History repeated itself at this year's John Deere Classic. Steve Stricker won the PGA tournament in the Quad Cities for a second year in a row, with a record-setting 26 under par. He scored a two-stroke victory over Paul Goydos in Silvis on Sunday.

It became Stricker's ninth career win worth $792,000. In a ceremony that followed, Stricker received a trophy and Deere CEO Sam Allen gave him the check.

It all happened a little earlier than usual. With rain in the forecast, organizers decided to schedule an early start on the final day of the tournament. That forced thousands of fans to squeeze onto the course two hours earlier, so they wouldn't miss the action.

Fans like Liz Shurson of New Boston, Illinois say they understand that safety on the course is a priority.

"I understand they have to move them through quicker, with the weather forecast and stuff. It's all good, it's working out, make the best of it. Everyone's having a good time," said Shurson.

"It's a safety issue as much as anything," added Tournament Director Clair Peterson. "We have 30,000 people on the course as well as the players, and we don't want to put anyone at risk needlessly."

Once the tournament ended, everything went right on schedule with two jets charted by the John Deere Classic, taking pro golfers onto the British Open. Those planes left, at 7:30 and 8:00 Sunday night.
