Michael Thompson Wins 3M Open by Two Strokes

What a great weekend has been finished with the 3M open golf tournament held at Blaine, Minnesota, a suburb north of Minneapolis. Michael Thompson who has been struggling from many years but eventually after a hard work he has been able to win the PGA tour since after 2013.

Dustin Johnson, at No. 4, the highest-ranked player within the field, played his first six holes at 1-under. He played his last six holes at 1-under. He played his middle six holes at 9-over and finished at 7-over 78 – tied for last within the 156-player field – before withdrawing from the tournament later within the afternoon with a back injury.

So, without any further ado, here are all-inclusive rounds detail you should know of the 3M Open Golf Tournament.

Round 1

(Richy Werenski -8)

Richy Werenski, looking for his first PGA victory, birdied the last hole to get a one-shot lead the first round, while Tony Finau was two shots off the pace. Werenski, who has one top-10 finish in 12 PGA Tour begins this season, carded an eight-under-par 63 at TPC Twin Cities to sit one shot beyond fellow American Michael Thompson. “I just played solid golf. The tee-ball wasn’t nearly as good as I wanted it to be, but found some fairways and took advantage with my irons,” said Werenski, who hit 14 of 18 greens in regulation. “My irons were specialized.”

(Michael Thompson -7)

In his first round at the 3M Open, Michael Thompson hit 11 of 14 fairways and 18 of 18 greens in regulation and completed the day without a bogey. Thompson finished his day in 2nd at 7 under; Richy Werenski is in 1st at 8 under.

Zinjun Zhang, Nick Watney, Tony Finau (-6)

Finau bounced back once again from a devastating final two rounds at the Memorial last week with a powerful 65 in Round 1. He led after 18 holes last week at Muirfield Village, but there is a big difference in those two rounds. Last week, he caught a hot putter and jumped call at the front.

This week, he flushed everything he checked out and led the field from tee to green within the first round. His swing looks so on point immediately, and a win in the week will likely not come right down to his physical gifts but rather whether he can appropriately harness them mentally as he tries to grab just the second trophy of his career.

T3. Matthew Wolff, Ryan Moore, Max Homa (-6)

Incredible round from Wolff as defending champ. He’s been destroyed for a few months now from tee to green after 12 months of pretty average play (for what I do know he believes his standards are). He was additionally involved in Round 1, and it had been as entertaining as you’d expect (and also as entertaining as his game is), though he might talk more on the course than Jordan Spieth does. I feel he’s getting to be in it for the duration.

Round 2

Michael Thompson (-12)

Richy Werenski’s and Michael Thompson’s names were atop the leaderboard after round 2 completed. Thompson hit 14 of 18 greens in regulation and finishing at 12 under for the tournament.

Tony Finau & Talor Gooch (-11)

Tony Finau features a big weekend on deck. Here are the facts of the huge names still in the field at this tournament, Finau is playing (by far) the best golf. Finau disposing of his caddie after a week ago reveals to me he knows (something!) needs to change which he must go grab a decent win. He has 33 top-10 finishes over the last four years and 0 wins. Time to go get one against a field you ought to beat.

Round 3

Michael Thompson (-15)

Another new day but the result was the same that Thompson was on the top after completing round 3. Michael Thompson hit 12 of 18 greens in regulation and completing at 15 under for the tournament. He tied for 1st at 15 under with Richy Week.
