3M Open R3

Rookie Wolff equals course record 62 to share lead

July 04-07
TPC Twin Cities, Blaine, Minnesota
$6,400,000
Round 1, Round 2, Round 4


Reigning NCAA champion Matthew Wolff equalled the course record as he took a share of the lead heading into the final round of the 3M Open in Minnesota.

The 20-year-old, playing in his third PGA Tour event since turning professional, shot a nine-under-par 62 on Saturday and shares a one-shot lead with fellow rookie Collin Morikawa and overnight leader Bryson DeChambeau at TPC Twin Cities.

DeChambeau, himself an NCAA champion back in 2015, had equalled the course record on Friday with a 62 but could only manage a one-under 70 in the third round to slip back to the field.

DeChambeau had nine birdies in the second round but Wolff needed 10 to record the same score on day three after he dropped a shot at the par-three 17th to harm his shot at the outright record.


Wolff, who went to Oklahoma State University, recovered with a birdie on the last and will start in the last pairing as he plays the final round of a PGA Tour event as a professional for the first time.

DeChambeau dropped his first shot of the tournament on the par-three 13th but a birdie on the 18th saw him join Wolff and Morikawa on 15 under.

Morikawa, playing his fourth PGA Tour event, had eight birdies and a bogey in his seven-under 64, as did fellow American Wyndham Clark who is on 14 under alongside Canadian Adam Hadwin.

Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama and American duo Charles Howell III and Troy Merritt are on 13 under.
