John Deere extends relationship with PGA through 2023
Golf enthusiasts can look forward to seeing the John Deere Classic and other John Deere events on the Tour for years to come.
"This sponsorship has significant impact in many important areas for John Deere," James Field, president of John Deere's worldwide agriculture and turf division, said in a news release. "The agreement helps our company sell equipment, build relationships with customers and dealers, and promote the John Deere brand worldwide."
John Deere and the PGA aren't the only ones that benefit from their association, as many community organizations in the Quad City-area receive millions in contributions. The tournament has been doing good in the community since 1971. No matter the score, everything the tournament has done is a hole-in-one considering the $62 million the John Deere Classic has raised for charity.
The event has another side benefit from the direct amount gained from the donations. The John Deere Classic generates roughly $54 million annually for the Quad Cities, according to a recent study.
