John Deere Classic 2012: Dicky Pride, Rory Sabbatini Make Moves As Leaders Wait

While the leaders will not tee off until the lunch hour, play of the final round of the 2012 John Deere Classic has begun and players are going low in hopes of increasing their weekend earnings.

Already, American Dicky Pride is looking to capitalize on a stress-free morning before television coverage starts, as he's -4 on the day and moved into a tie for 27th place, 33 slots ahead of where he began the day.

South African Rory Sabbatini is looking to do the same, as he's already -3 through seven holes, currently tied with Pride for 27th place, with plenty of time to move up the leaderboard even further.

Steve Stricker is in the final pairing with Troy Matteson, as Stricker will look to complete his "Stricker Slam" and win the John Deere Classic for the fourth consecutive year. The two will tee off at 12:35 p.m. ET.
