Some of my favorite golf photos from this year's John Deere Classic.Zach Johnson always has a big gallery following him around the course. Always looking for new angles to show all the people surrounding him. Brian Harman pulled a local high school basketball coach out of the crowd when is caddie suddenly got sick on the course.
