For the second straight week the PGA Tour heads to a brand new golf tournament and venue with this week’s 3M Open outside Minnesota.

Brooks Koepka leads the pack with some big names looking to get back into the winners circle this season. There’s just two tournaments remaining before the Open Championship with a bevy of golfers teeing it up this week with traditionally next week’s John Deere Classic not well attended by world class competitors.

*Odds as of 07/01/19. 

Hideki Matsuyama Poised for Breakthrough

Hideki Matsuyama has compiled a ton of really good tournaments this year without breaking through for victory. The five-time tour winner holds the longest active cut streak at 24, and he’s due to win again.

In addition, Matsuyama has been fantastic this season in several strokes gained categories, where he’s in the top six in total strokes gained, tee-to-green and approaching the green. If he can putt even halfway decently, expect Matsuyama to lift his first PGA Tour trophy in nearly two years.

Tournament Result
Rocket Mortgage Classic T-13th
US Open T-21st
The Memorial Tournament 6th
PGA Championship T-16th
AT&T Byron Nelson T-23rd

Rory Sabbatini Playing Strong Golf

Rory Sabbatini has had a career rebirth, having made 13 consecutive cuts and has posted three top-6 finishes in his last five tournaments.

This could be the perfect week for his first victory since 2011, competing against a field that has some big names but lacks the depth of other big tournaments.

At +3300 he doesn’t present the greatest of values but not many golfers could rack up so many high finishes of late and still have decent odds like that. He should be a safe bet to at least be a part of the conversation come Sunday.

2019 3M Open Best Value Picks

  1. Keegan Bradley (+4000): Two weeks ago finished in a tie for second at the Travelers Championship. Ranks fourth in strokes gained approaching the green. Gets off to hot starts, ranking seventh in first round scoring average this year.
  2. Sungjae Im (+4000): Six top-10’s in his rookie season. Solid across the board in all strokes gained categories. In last three starts, has a seventh place showing and a pair of T-21 results.
  3. Cameron Champ (+10000): Longshot with strong upside. Champ was second after two days in last week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic to break out of a mid season slump before a tough weekend. Fourth in strokes gained off the tee this season and already has a win on the campaign.
