Allison Farrell poses for a portrait on the green of the fourth hole at TPC Deere Run Tuesday, June 29, 2021, in Silvis. Farrell will be taking Deere & Co. Chairman and CEO John May’s place, playing in a foursome with Dylan Frittelli, the 2019 John Deere Classic champion in this year’s Pro-Am event on Wednesday, July 7.

The John Deere Classic and TPC Deere Run will forever hold a special place in Allison Farrell's heart. 

It's where she developed a love for and learned to play the game from her father, and where a budding romance blossomed.

"This is my favorite spot on the golf course," Farrell, of Geneseo, said of the 4th green overlooking the Rock River.

"You can see the 2nd hole, the Hewitt house (and) you can see trees for miles," she said of the spot where her fiancé proposed. "I think it's just a spectacular view of the golf course."

The pair, who play the course two to three times a week, will be married in September at a spot overlooking the 18th green.

Farrell also has worked as a volunteer at the John Deere Classic on the 10th hole since middle school, including serving as a hole marshal.

But, next week, Farrell will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, thanks to Deere & Co. Chairman and CEO John May.

Farrell will take May's place, playing in a foursome with Dylan Frittelli, the 2019 John Deere Classic champion, in this year’s Pro-Am event on Wednesday, July 7.

"It's a dream," Farrell said. "I've always dreamt of being on the same course as PGA Tour players. I think it will be an awesome opportunity for young girls to see another female out there playing in the Pro-Am." Read more.
