The PGA Tour moves to the TPC Twin Cities layout in Blaine, Minnesota a suburb of Minneapolis and it’s another new course on the schedule. The course has been home to the 3M Championship on the PGA Champions Tour since 1991, but now moves to the main tour with a new name the 3M Open this week.

The course was originally designed by the Arnold Palmer back in 1997, to bring the course up to PGA Tour standards a team from Arnold Palmer Design Company, have worked with Hollis Cavner, CEO of Pro Link Sports and organiser of the 3M Championship, Steve Wenzloff, senior vice president of design at PGA Tour Design Services, and professional golfer Tom Lehman.

Fairway lines have been strategically adjusted to place a premium on driving accuracy while also minimising the advantage disparity between the longer and shorter hitters on tour. Some tees and bunkers have been repositioned, added or realigned. The most significant change has been at the eighteenth hole, where the tees have been moved to a position where the hole plays its true yardage and the lake at the front of the green has been expanded.

There has also been adjustment to the 594-yard par-5 double dogleg 6th hole, which now puts a premium on accuracy and becomes a classic risk/reward hole. A tee shot played over the deep fescue grasses framing the right side will shorten the hole significantly and any successful second shot played over the pond should find the wide putting green.





My tips to Win:

This week’s defending champion is Matthew Wolff 25/1 – with SportingBet – and it’s all been a bit of hit a miss for the Californian since the restart with three missed cuts and a runner-up finish. Matthew finished inside the Top 25 at the Memorial Tournament at the weekend, which was pretty impressive when you consider how tough the course was set-up and I think that bodes well for the defence of his title this week.

One player that seems to have benefited from the lockdown is Lucas Glover 33/1 – with SportingBet – who missed two cuts on the spin before shutdown and has come back and had four Top 25 finishes. Lucas shot a final round 62 here last year and I am sure he will have plenty of positive vibes from that score and his Top 10 finish at the Memorial Tournament at the weekend, when he arrives here this week.

As many of you know who follow this guide regularly I do rate Erik Van Rooyen 40/1 – with WilliamHill – and tipped him when he won his first European Tour event last year at the Scandinavian Invitation. Erik is just finding his feet at the moment on the PGA Tour and I have no doubt it won’t be long before he starts to challenge and with one of the weaker fields this week since the restart and a solid performance to make the Top 25 at the weekend at Jacks place, he will be coming into this event in confident mood.

Each-way Tip:

I think Sam Burns 45/1 – with SportingBet – dodged a bullet at the weekend by not playing in the Memorial Tournament, I am not saying it’s not a great event but the conditions may just have put a dent in the momentum that Sam seems to be building at the moment. Since the restart Burns has played some steady golf with two Top 25 finishes from his four starts and taking a week off to comeback and concentrate on a tournament where he had a Top 10 finish last year, could prove to be a very shrewd move.

It has been a sluggish restart for Carlos Ortiz 66/1 – with Ladbrokes – but there are signs in there that he could start challenging again and coming back to a venue where he had a Top 5 finish last year, will only help with the confidence boost he needs to get his season back on track.

Outside tip:

I have tipped Ryan Armour 90/1 – with UniBet – a couple of times already since the restart and he has had two Top 6 finishes from his four starts since the resumption. Ryan opened with a 66 here last year to get off to a great start, but the TPC Twin Cities course is a birdie fest and Armour just didn’t keep that rate going on a course that see four rounds of 66 only managing to bag you the runner-up spot. I am not sure the scoring will be as low this year, but I do feel in his current form Ryan will be looking forward to challenging this week.

Longer odds:

Try Xinjun Zhang 150/1 – with BetVictor

As always good luck
