Only illness has been able to slow down Adam Schenk at the John Deere Classic in recent years.

After missing the cut in his tournament debut in 2018, Schenk hasn’t finished outside the top six. That is, when not forced to withdraw. He pulled out in 2022 after the first round due to sickness.

In 2019, the Vincennes, Indiana, native carded 67-65-66-70 and was in the mix to win on Sunday before settling for T-6th.

Schenk took T-4th (67-64-70-67) in 2021. He improved from 16-under that year to 18-under in 2023 but once again finished T-4th. The Purdue alum was just a shot back of second place.

“It feels great. Had some success here. Midwest course is bent grass, so I really enjoy that aspect of it. They take a ton of pride in their tournament and do a great job running it,” Schenk was transcribed by ASAP Sports in 2023. "So it's easy to come back here and really look forward to it year after year.”

Last year, he was in second place heading to the final round. He ranked sixth on the week in Strokes Gained: Approach (5.081) and seventh in SG: Putting (5.716).

Schenk would be higher in the power rankings this week, but current form won’t allow for it. The 32-year-old owns just one top-10 this season, a T-5th at the Valero Texas Open. Schenk parlayed that success into a career-high major championship finish, a T-12th at the Masters.

He’s coming off a missed cut last week at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Schenk didn’t play all that poorly at Detroit Golf Club posting 1-under through two rounds, though 4-under was requisite to play the weekend.

Through June 23, Schenk ranks 54th on the PGA Tour in SG: Off-the-Tee (.233). He’s 59th in driving accuracy (65.39%).

If he’s ever going to pick up his maiden PGA Tour victory, this is likely where it’s going to happen.
