These two golf fans have a strategy for getting that perfect spot on Hole 18, hint: it involves coffee.

SILVIS, Illinois -- Two men earned the John Deere Classic "Fans of the Day" title, sponsored by RIA Federal Credit Union.

On Saturday, July 13, Troy Krueger and Ben Harshbarger drove from Des Moines, Iowa to get a glimpse of the annual tournament.

For them, it's not just about getting there, but making sure they get the perfect viewing spot.
