Here's a little story to tell your mates when you watching the John Deere Classic in the pub this weekend.

In case you never heard of the 'John Deere Charter' its a plane, paid for by the organizers of the John Deere Classic, that sits fueled and ready at a nearby airport Sunday evening to fly any player who is in The Open Championship to Edinburgh for free.

The Charter is one of the main reasons the John Deere can get some of the names they do like Jordan Spieth, Zach Johnson and co. Everyone who is anyone in the world of golf wants to be playing links courses the week before The Open.  At least the flight will get them to Scotland bright and early Monday morning in comfort.

The first year that the John Deere was relegated to the crappy slot before The Open was in 2004.  That year Todd Hamilton played the John Deere before making his way to Troon and winning The Claret Jug.

The first John Deere Charter Flight was in 2007 and since then, no golfer who has taken the flight has gone one to win The Open.

That's the John Deere Charter jinx!  Mine's a pint of Guinness please.
