It’s not everyday that you see a golfer making an eagle on their final hole. It’s not everyday that you see them go on to win the tournament, either. But that’s exactly what 20-year old Matthew Wolff did on Sunday at the 3M Open, one of the wildest weekends the PGA Tour has seen in a long time.
With a seemingly endless list of potential contenders for the win, it was Wolff, in this third tournament since turning pro, that held his nerve and knocked down a 26-footer on the 18th hole to get to -21. That proved to be enough to win by one over Bryson DeChambeau and Colin Morikawa. His win at the TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, Minnesota, gave him a check for over a million dollars and a two-year tour exemption. Not bad for someone playing on a sponsor’s exemption!
