John Deere Classic Leaderboard: Chris DiMarco Off To Fast Start Sunday

Troy Matteson, the leader at the 2012 John Deere Classic, has barely begun his day, but already he is feeling a bit of heat. Chris DiMarco has shot 3-under through his first five holes Sunday and is now four strokes off the lead with Brian Harman. DiMarco made eagle on the Par 5 hole No. 2, making it to the green in two strokes before sinking a 23-foot putt.

Matteson (19-under overall) made birdie on No. 2 to hold DiMarco at bay. Steve Stricker, the winner the last three John Deere Classics, also made birdie on the hole to take sole possession of second place, three strokes behind Matteson.

Rory Sabbatini was making a big charge up the leaderboard earlier in the day, shooting 7-under through 16 holes. He hit bogey on No. 18, however, to finish in a 16th place tie (for now) at 12-under overall. Ben Crane finished the day at 6-under, coming in at 13-under for the tournament.
