Van Sickle Tees Off Thursday at John Deere Classic in PGA debut

Mike Van Sickle’s childhood dream of playing in a PGA Tour event will become a reality Thursday afternoon when he takes to the 10th tee at TPC Deere Run for the first round of the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Ill. [Full Story]

Gary D'Amato of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wrote a column that describes Van Sickle's experiences so far this week (see "Van Sickle set to take Tour").

Van Sickle's father, Gary, also sounds off about his experience as Mike's caddy for the event in an article published earlier this week on (see "Bag-Dad Diary: A golf writer's son makes his PGA Tour debut, with Pop as his looper")


  1. I really enjoyed reading your blog. I have a few blogs of my own and I always look at other people’s blogs for great ideas. In fact, not to sound like an advertisement, but if I were you, I would submit this blog to and let thousands of others see it for free. I get a lot of traffic and readers from them for my blogs. Anyways, I have added this blog to my social bookmark and I look forward to all the updates.


  2. Is there any truth to the rumor that Mike's college golf coach will become his full time swing coach on tour? He did a great job of taking an above average player and transforming him into a great player.
