2023 3M Open preview

We're getting into the back stretch of the PGA Tour regular season, and a lot of big-name players aren't securely in the top 50 for designated status for next season. Hence a better 3M Open field than we have seen.

TPC Twin Cities rewards length for sure, but the better players from 175-200 yards in approach play also have an excellent chance this week.

2023 3M Open rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Cameron Young: Cam Young gave himself a great chance at the Open, and he's been playing better of late. But the putting has to improve to close.

2. Tony Finau: Finau is the true, lone horse-for-course play this week. He's defending again after a bit of a rough summer.

3. Hideki Matsuyama: Matsuyama had a nice, if unspectacular, week at The Open. He needs a couple of good weeks to find the top 50.

4. Ludvig Aberg: Aberg has found success early, and he seems to thrive in places where he can just bang driver. This is that place.

5. Emiliano Grillo: Grillo was fantastic at the Open, finishing T-6, and he was T-15 at the Travelers. It's been an erratic but successful year, and he comes to a place where he has two medal-stand finishes.

6. Sepp Straka: Straka has enjoyed a great July with a win at the Deere and a career-best major finish at The Open.

7. Sungjae Im: Im has not been really good this year. Lots of top-30 finishes. But he can do better this week at a venue he clearly likes.

8. Akshay Bhatia: Bhatia just broke through on the PGA Tour at the Barracuda, and that confidence boost may mean a ton from here.

9. Stephan Jaeger: Jaeger hasn't missed a cut since the Heritage, and he's been in great shape in three of his last-four non-Stableford events.

10. Gary Woodland: In a field of not-great players, Woodland's consistency and relative length has to be considered a plus.
