3M Open

TPC Twin Cities
Blaine, MN

The PGA Tour heads to Minnesota for the third annual 3M Open.

Before we get to this week's event, though, I feel we should take a quick peek back at the Open Championship. With his second major victory, it's safe to say Collin Morikawa has entered the elite level on the PGA Tour. It was more than reasonable to think it would take Morikawa some time to adjust to the Open Championship setup, but it took him merely one round to find his footing, and when it was all said and done he took home the title in his first appearance. Some golfers just have that "it" factor – it doesn't matter where they play or what the conditions, they just find a way to get it done. It looks like Morikawa is one of those guys, and if his counterparts continue getting bad breaks due to tee times – or even equipment – he will find himself in position to rack up more majors. 

Now, onto the matter at hand. The PGA Tour resumes play in Minnesota. For a post-major event, it's not a terrible field, but obviously it's not great either. We now have two editions of this event to analyze as opposed to just the one we had last year, which makes it a bit easier to peg this time around.

LAST YEAR

Michael Thompson shot a final-round 67 on his way to a two-stroke victory over Adam Long.
