3M Open - The Punter's in-depth preview

The Punter will be updating his blog and betting in-play across the weekend. In the meantime, his pre-event guide to the tournament history, course and who to back is essential.

He says: "I was very tempted by the defending champ, Matthew Wolff, given how close he came to winning the Rocket Mortgage Classic but odds of less than [30.0] are a bit too skinny so I've played three others who have played well here."
