The PGA TOUR is back in the United States for the rest of the 2021-22 season, and the home stretch begins with the 3M Open in Minnesota.
TPC Twin Cities will host the fourth edition of the 3M Open, which has seen a $900,000 increase in its purse compared to the last two years.
The headliners this week are Hideki Matsuyama and Tony Finau, both of whom are making the trip from Scotland this week after making the cut at the Open Championship.
Matsuyama has a DQ and missed cut in his last four starts, with a fourth-place finish at the U.S. Open and extremely unspectacular finish at the Open Championship under his belt, as well. Scores should be quite low this week, and he has shown he can thrive in birdie-tests this year. He won the Sony Open at 23-under and finished T3 at the Byron Nelson at 24-under.
Finau missed cuts in three of four tournaments earlier this year, but he has bounced back to find some extremely consistent form of late. He has missed one cut since THE PLAYERS and has been in the top 15 in three of his last five starts.
One player who will be popular this week will be Davis Riley, who has been stellar in 2022 after breaking through with a playoff loss at the Valspar Championship. Riley has made eight straight cuts and finished in the top 15 six times during that stretch.
Sungjae Im and Sahith Theegala also will go from St. Andrews to the Twin Cities. John Deere Classic winner J.T. Poston will be in the field, as well, although he missed the cut at The Open.
TPC Twin Cities is an Arnold Palmer-designed course that has seen low scoring in its three years as 3M Open host.
The tournament is a par-71 track that will play around 7,430 yards. It will not look anything like St. Andrews, without many hills and with water hazards in play on 13 holes.
Through three years, long hitters have come out on top here twice. There are advantages to be had off the tee, so extra distance with the driver will definitely be an edge.
Back in 2019, 20-year-old Matthew Wolff went from NCAA champion to 3M Open champion in the span of a few months. His 21-under is the record for this young tournament. He won the 3M title by one stroke over Bryson DeChambeau and Collin Morikawa.
In 2020, Michael Thompson won by two strokes at 19-under, and then Cameron Champ notched his third PGA TOUR victory last year at 15-under over three players.
