SILVIS, Ill. (AP) - John Deere will continue to serve as the title sponsor of the PGA Tour event in Illinois through 2023.

The Moline, Illinois-based company says it has reached a seven-year extension with the PGA Tour to host the John Deere Classic at the TPC Deere Run just east of its headquarters.

The tournament has been held in the Quad Cities area on the Illinois-Iowa line since 1971, and John Deere took over as the title sponsor in 1998.

Financial terms weren’t disclosed.
