3M Open 2019: Your form guide ahead of this week's PGA Tour visit to Minnesota

TPC Twins Cities, 3M Open
TPC Twins Cities: A regular venue on America's senior tour between 2001 and last year

This week's PGA Tour event takes place a few miles north of Minneapolis. Words and form stats compiled by Andy Swales ...

"Jason Day, the former world No 1, remains a fairly consistent competitor with nine T-25s from 13 starts this calendar year...According to PGA Tour stats his all-round game is in good shape."

The PGA Tour remains in America's MidWest for this week's 3M Open in Minnesota.

This will be the first top-tier event to be staged in the northern state for 10 years, and is being held at the highly regarded TPC Twin Cities.

Designed by Arnold Palmer, in consultation with local hero Tom Lehman, Twin Cities was opened in 2000, since when it has been part of the Champions Tour schedule 18 times.

But it now departs senior golf to make its debut on the PGA Tour, and has attracted a reasonably strong field for its maiden outing.

Koepka Tees-Up

Two members of the world's top 10 are teeing-up, including No 1 Brooks Koepka.

The other is No 8 Bryson DeChambeau whose tie-for-eighth at TPC River Highlands recently was his best PGA Tour finish since the first week of January - ending a run of 11 tournaments without a top-10.

Jason Day, the former world No 1 who is now ranked 18, remains a fairly consistent competitor with nine T-25s from 13 starts this calendar year.

However, the Aussie is without a win for 14 months but according to PGA Tour stats his all-round game is in good shape, borne out by top-25 finishes in each of the last five majors dating back 12 months.

He remains in the top 20 of Greens in Regulation, and is also well placed for both Putting Average and Strokes Gained: Putting.

He is slightly above average for Scrambling, so surely his next win can't be too far away.

Corey Conners, Keegan Bradley, Hideki Matsuyama and Kyle Stanley should find the course to their liking, while young Chilean Joaquin Niemann is edging ever closer to a maiden victory.

The 21-year-old has posted back-to-back top-five finishes these past two weeks - which were his first T-10s of 2019.

Plenty Of Water

Although laid out around 900 feet above sea level, the course was built on natural wetlands, around 15 miles north of Minneapolis - not far from the state border with Wisconsin.

Water, which will come into play on around 10 holes, and possibly more if particularly wayward, is the main feature of this thoroughly modern venue.

Large expanses of water will threaten a number of tee shots, as well as many approaches to the green, and the winner of this week's event will require plenty of precision and confidence, with both driver and irons alike, when dealing with its collection of interesting dog-legs.

The layout's Bentgrass greens are slightly smaller than the Tour average - but only just.
