The 3M Open is this week’s tournament on the 2020 PGA Tour schedule, and it’s only the second renewal of the event. Just like last year’s inaugural edition, it is taking place at the TPC Twin Cities Golf Club in Blaine, Minnesota.
Originally designed by Arnold Palmer, TPC Twin Cities was given a face-lift by Tim Heron and Tom Lehman before it became a PGA Tour venue. But that didn’t stop this resort layout from getting a hammering by the professionals, with last year’s winner Matthew Wolff winning with a total of 21 under par.
Despite decent prize money, the sponsors will be disappointed by a field lacking in depth this week, but that’s to be expected with the rearranged PGA schedule. Many of the big names that played in one or both the events at Muirfield Village are giving this week a miss, with a WGC and the US PGA Championship being the next two tournaments.
Dustin Johnson is the biggest name in the field, but his motivation is always hard to predict. He won two starts ago but missed the cut last week. He also didn’t play this event last year. 11/1 is tempting for a player of his quality in a field lacking depth, but he’ll surely have one eye on the next two weeks.
Brooks Koepka will probably have both eyes on the next two weeks, as WGC’s and Majors are more his bag. He finished 65th last year, and his latest form figures read 7/MC/62 make him even harder to recommend at 14/1.
Tony Finau was talking about a new positive mental attitude last week but that got blown away by the inclement weather at Muirfield. But he could easily improve on last year’s 23-place finish. The other big name at the head of the market is Tommy Fleetwood but the Englishman will surely be trying to fine-tune his game this week after eight-weeks on the sidelines.
Matthew Wolff will be popular at 25/1 this week after winning last year and finishing second just three starts ago. Other players to note from last year’s edition of the 3M Open include Lucas Glover (seventh) and Troy Merritt (eighth).
But our 3M Open tip for 2020 is Sam Burns. The 23-year-old finished tied seventh last year and has been consistently posting decent scores recently with form figures of 24/30/17.
