The Money List: Golf tips for the 3M Open
Jack Green's golf tips for this week's PGA Tour event at TPC Twin Cities include two each-way shouts and an outsider at a big price.
English has made a solid return since the PGA Tour resumed in June.
After missing the cut at the Charles Schwab Challenge, the American bounced back with a T17 at the RBC Heritage and a T13 at last week’s Memorial Tournament.
That was a particularly impressive result given the strong field and extremely difficult conditions at Muirfield Village last week, and English has now finished 17th or better in five of his last six starts dating back to February.
Few players in this field are in such good form, so the 30-year-old is a fine bet to get into contention this week and possibly even earn his third career win on the PGA Tour.
Glover finished T38 at the Memorial Tournament last week, meaning he’s now made five cuts out of five since the PGA Tour restart.
The American has four top-25s in that run but is yet to get into contention, although this weakened field presents an excellent opportunity to add to his three career wins – one of which was the 2009 US Open.
Glover is one of the few players taking part this week who combines solid form with a good performance at this event last year, having finished T7 at TPC Twin Cities 12 months ago.
The winning score last year was -21 and low scores are expected again this time around, which suits Glover as he ranks inside the top 30 in birdie average on the PGA Tour this year.
Hoffman finished T7 at the Workday Charity Open a fortnight ago and looks poised to build upon that result in Minnesota this week.
The American has been inconsistent this season but has mixed in some fine results, including a T9 at the Farmers Insurance Open and a T13 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Despite his struggles, Hoffman ranks inside the top 20 in birdie average on the PGA Tour this year, so he’s well suited to this event if it becomes a birdie-fest as expected.
Having ranked seventh in strokes gained: putting at Muirfield Village a fortnight ago and 21st in putting average in 2020, Hoffman will be in with a chance if he again performs well on these bentgrass greens.
