John Deere Classic Mobile App for iPhone and Android based phones
Fans of the John Deere Classic now may download a new smart phone app designed specifically for the 2012 John Deere Classic to help them stay connected digitally to the tournament via the web and social media.
The new 2012 John Deere Classic App will enable fans to purchase tickets, get information on parking and shuttle bus schedules, connect with the tournament website and Facebook page, check the leaderboard, keep up with breaking golf news, and check out the latest PGA TOUR videos and Player Tweets right from their iPhones or Android-based phones.
Fans may download the app via Apple's App Store or Android's Google Play.
The App also lets fans connect directly with the John Deere Classic's ever more popular Facebook page, which now boasts more than 10,800 followers.
During tournament week, the John Deere Classic App will enable fans to check the leaderboard, see tee times and groupings, consult the schedule of events, review the course map and hole-by-hole descriptions of TPC Deere Run, and find out about available parking lot and shuttle buses.
The PGA TOUR last year began a policy of allowing fans to bring their mobile phone devices to PGA TOUR events as long as their use does not disrupt play.
In addition to ongoing Facebook page updates, the John Deere Classic App features news and videos from the PGA TOUR as well as âtweetsâ from dozens of PGA TOUR players who post comments on their Twitter accounts. Information also is available about the tournamentâs highly successful - and much imitated - Birdies for Charity Program as well as tournament sponsor John Deere.

1. Opening the appropriate attached bar code for iPhone or Android
