    Check out these preview interviews to hear how players are preparing to tackle Royal Birkdale. As you'll learn, players have to make a lot of adjustments, from simple ones like the time difference to more complicated changes like altering their natural shot-shape and trajectory to battle the wind and course set-up that is not like anything they've faced this year. Zach also talks about the flooding that has devastated his hometown of Cedar Rapids, Iowa and what he and the PGA Tour are doing to help people recover.

    SciFlex loyalist Kenny Perry emerged victorious from a three-man playoff Sunday to win the John Deere Classic and escape with his third victory in five starts. Perry finished regulation tied for the lead with a 16-under 268 total and returned to the 18th tee for the first extra hole. After both his competitors hit their approach shots into the pond, Perry tapped in from 16 inches for par and the win. He picked the ball out of the cup and raised both arms, an ear-to-ear grin crossing his face...and for good reason. He's enjoying the best stretch of his career, collected $756,000 with his 12th career victory, moved into second place in the FedEx Cup Standings and second on the season's Money List. He's also all but guaranteed himself a spot on the Ryder Cup Team, something that has been top priority all season with the chance to play for the U.S. team in front of his home fans in Kentucky. Perry lost a playoff at the AT&T Classic in May and won the Memorial two weeks later. He tied for sixth at the Travelers Championship and closed out June with another win at the Buick Open, giving him four top-six finishes in six starts. FootJoy was the most worn glove and shoe at the John Deere Classic with twice as many gloves and more than three times as many shoes as the nearest competitor.
