3M Open

TPC Minneapolis
Blaine, MN

The PGA Tour leaves the comfy confines of Dublin, Ohio for the Great White North, otherwise known as Minnesota. Blaine, Minnesota to be more specific and for those that enjoyed the carnage that was Muirfield this past week, well, you might want to hide your eyes as we're back to birdies-or-bust golf. Last year, the first 3M Open, Matthew Wolff needed to go really low to win and -21 under par was barely enough. The course is not meant to be difficult and if the wind is not blowing, the scores will be very low once again. I've spent a lot of time on this course and there's just not enough room to make it really difficult. They've done everything they can to turn the course from a Champions Tour course into a PGA Tour course, but there isn't much in the way of natural defense out there. Last year's 3M Open was a bit of coming-out party for the young guys as Wolff got the victory and Collin Morikawa played well on his way to a T2. Of the top four finishers last year, only Wolff is returning, so that means no Morikawa and no Bryson DeChambeau. There's still some firepower in the field this week however, so expect some really low scores again.
