As the PGA Tour season winds down, there are just two events remaining on the schedule before the FedEx Cup Playoffs begin. This week Tour pros take on TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, Minnesota, for the fifth edition of the 3M Open. The four-day individual stroke play event begins on Thursday, July 27th, and concludes on Sunday, July 30th.
Last year, Tony Finau picked up his first of two victories in back-to-back weeks with a four-day tally of 267 (17-under par). At the time, the win was Finau’s fourth of his career and first of three victories in 2022. Finau comfortably took home the victory, defeating Emiliano Grillo Sungjae Im by three shots.
There is a lot on the line this week for some players in the field, as this year marks the first season that the FedEx Cup Playoffs is reduced from 125 to 70 players. Those players teetering near that 70 mark need a good week to ease the stress of having to go into next week’s Wyndham Championship with their Tour status on the line.
Let’s take a look at the top players for the 2023 3M Open so you can wager against their PGA Tour lines to win this golf tournament.

TPC Twin Cities, Blaine, Minnesota
July 24-30, 2023
TPC Twin Cities
TPC Twin Cities opened its doors in 2000 under the design of Arnold Palmer’s design team and player consultant Tom Lehman. A private club, the golf course is a member of the Tournament Players Club network operated by the PGA Tour.
TPC Twin Cities has been the site of a professional golf tournament since 2001, formerly hosting the 3M Championship on the PGA Tour Champions circuit before becoming a PGA Tour event in 2019.
The course stretches over 7,400 yards in length and will play as a par-71 for the pros. In 2018, TPC Twin Cities underwent extensive renovations that included the narrowing of fairways, adding bunkers, and adding/repositioning tee boxes throughout the course.
The 3M Open Field
Finau returns to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area to defend his title after missing the cut at last week’s Open Championship. Joining Finau is a pair of past FedEx Cup champions, Justin Thomas and Billy Horschel, who currently are on the outside looking in of the playoffs. Thomas sits 75th in the standings, while Horschel finds himself at 119th.
Cameron Young played in the final group on Sunday at Royal Liverpool and made the long trek back, and is expected to tee it up. Last year’s runner-ups, Grillo and Im, are also back in the fold this week.
Sepp Straka, who won the John Deere Classic and posted a T2 at the Open, joins the field alongside rookie Ludvig Aberg and Special Temporary Member Ryan Gerard.
