It’s always tough to see the final major of the year close out, but what a group of major championships it was in 2022.

Cameron Smith put his name on the Claret Jug on Sunday after an epic back nine stole the championship and storybook ending away from Rory McIlroy.

Smith reeled off five consecutive birdies starting at the 10th hole and made an incredible par save at the par-4 17th before a closing birdie shut the door on his contenders.

He joins Matt Fitzpatrick, Justin Thomas and Scottie Scheffler as major champions this year and certainly put his name alongside Scheffler’s for Player of the Year.

The TOUR now heads back stateside for the 3M Open from TPC Twin Cities. As expected, the field is light on top-end players, as many spent two weeks playing in Scotland and will likely take a break from tournament play before ramping back up for the FedEx Cup Playoffs in three weeks.

Others will be looking to work their way into that playoff field, making for a vital stretch of golf for many players further down in the rankings.

Let’s see who stands out for some value in our early buys this week.

Bet the 3M Open risk-free up to $1,000.

Best Buys for 3M Open

Cam Davis +2500 (DraftKings)

While many players were grinding it out across the pond, Cameron Davis was in the mix for a win at the Barracuda Championship. Unfortunately for him, a costly water ball down the stretch eliminated him from the chance to grab his second win on TOUR.

He still showed to be in solid form and now heads to a course that should really suit his game well.

Oddsmakers certainly see that opportunity for the Australian, as he’s listed at a much shorter number than we’re used to seeing for him.

It’s one of those weeks where we can’t get too caught up in the numbers next to the names, and Davis certainly fits here even at this price.

Brendan Steele +4000 (DraftKings)

This summer has been the start of a quiet resurgence for Brendan Steele.

He has really found something since the start of March and has posted strong finishes in some of the biggest events he has played this year. Steele finished T13 at the Players Championship, T9 at the U.S. Open and T10 at the Memorial.

He comes into this week with top-25 finishes in each of his last three tournaments played and continues to show strong form.

This is a field where his name will be further up the odds board than we’re used to, but he’s deserving given how he’s played and how the course fits his game.

Garrick Higgo +15000 (DraftKings)

I will be looking to throw some darts at longshots this week, and Garrick Higgo certainly fits in that mix. He has been nothing short of bad most of this season with nine missed cuts in his last 11 events.

Going into last week, the only tournament he had made the cut on TOUR since the start of March was at the Memorial, where he finished T18.

He made the weekend once again this time at The Open, and while a poor Saturday derailed him from any potential at a solid finish, he bounced back with a strong Sunday, making just one bogey en route to a 6-under 66.

I’ll hope that he found something this week and can bring that form back with him stateside to a course that could suit the strengths of his game quite well.
