Hello! Before we jump over to the 3M Open, let’s give a big congrats to Brian Harman on his first major victory! He played well and stayed strong on closing day.

After two weeks overseas, we head back to the Midwest for the 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities, a beautifully designed Arnold Palmer course. There are only two weeks remaining before the playoffs begin. We won’t see a star field this week, but there are some big names fighting for a place within the top 70 of the FedEx Cup Playoffs, including Justin Thomas, who is currently sitting at 75. This course will take us back to picturesque tree-lined fairways, ample water hazards and thick rough. This will be the fifth edition of this event in Blaine, Minnesota. We are also expecting it to be a birdie fest with short par fours, reachable par fives and stadium-like par threes.
