Golf's best pros are heading to Blaine, Minnesota this weekend for the next stop on this year's PGA Tour and we have all the details on how you can watch the 2021 3M Open on TV or online.
This will be the tournament's third year as the 3M Open was added to the PGA Tour back in 2019. TPC Twin Cities will host the event as it did last year and the 3M Open is the 44th tournament on the PGA Tour's packed schedule for 2021 in which the top golf pros will play at 50 events over the span of 51 weeks.
In addition to being on Golf Digest magazine's top 20 golf courses in Minnesota, TPC Twin Cities' par-y2, 7,468-yard championship golf course was designed by legendary golfer Arnold Palmer. The course itself was created in such a way that it blends seamlessly with the natural rolling terrain 15 miles north of Minneapolis/St. Paul.
Matthew Wolff won the inaugural 3M Open back in 2019 with an eagle on the final hole which allowed him to beat both Bryson DeChambeau and Colin Morikawa. Last year Michael Thompson won the tournament by two strokes to defeat Adam Long. The world's second-ranked player Dustin Johnson will be in attendance at this year's tournament among other top golf pros including Louis Oosthuizen, Patrick Reed, Rickie Fowler and defending champion Michael Thompson.
The 3M Open is the final stop on the PGA Tour before the 2021 FedEx Cup Playoffs kick off next month in which players will compete in three golf tournaments including The Northern Trust in New Jersey, the BMW Championship in Maryland and the Tour Championship in Georgia.
