(SILVIS, IL) – Charles Howell III and Ollie Schniederjans each shot 8 under 63 in perfect morning conditions Thursday to share the first-round lead in the John Deere Classic. Howell birdied seven his first nine holes and added a birdie on No. 7 at rain-softened TPC Deere Run. Schniederjans birdied five of his last eight holes in his lowest round of the PGA Tour. He earned a PGA Tour card last year through the Tour. Local favorite Zach Johnson was 2 strokes back at 65 along with Rory Sabbatini, Patrick Rodgers and Chac Campbell. Bubba Watson, the two-time Masters winner making his first Quad Cities start in seven years, opened with a 69. Fifty year old Steve Stricker, the winner from 2009 to '11 at Deere Run, had a 73. Defending champion Ryan Moore had a 74 in his return from a strained tendon in his left shoulder that sidelined him for five weeks.
