This week: John Deere Classic, Thursday through Sunday, TPC Deere Run, Silvis, Ill.

World rankings: Stanley is 57th, Moore is 77th and Kelly is 167th.

2012 earnings: Stanley has $2.09 million (18th on the PGA Tour), Moore has $962,724 (65th on the PGA Tour) and Kelly has $740,444 (87th on the PGA Tour).

Last tournament: A tied-for-22nd showing at the AT&T National (2-over 286) on July 1, a final-round 71 under blistering hot conditions – all signs that Stanley is finally emerging from 31/2 off-kilter months. The $58,592 he made for that finish was more than he had earned in the prior 10 tournaments (including six missed cuts). And remember, Stanley almost won the John Deere last year had Steve Stricker not posted the best 18th-hole birdie of the season. … If Moore makes the cut this week, he will tie a personal-best of consecutive cuts made at 10. He came dangerously close to having it snapped a couple weeks back before tying for 58th at the AT&T National (9-over 293). … After Kelly recorded a career-best PGA Tour finish at last week’s Greenbrier Classic (runner-up at 16-under 264, lost in playoff to Ted Potter, Jr.), he and his brother, Ryan, drove 700 miles to Illinois on Sunday night to play this week. And after that, they will take the charter flight out to the British Open. His performance last week was only the fifth time in 15 events that he finished under-par.

Tee times Thursday: Stanley at 9:45 a.m. PDT, Moore at 10:25 a.m. PDT and Kelly at 10:55 a.m. PDT. All go off the first tee.
