3M Open Betting Tips
This isn’t a short golf course by any means, but the 3M Open isn’t a great week for the bomb-and-gauge crowd. The course has hazards everywhere with water coming into play on 12 holes. And while the fairways are relatively generous, the big miss off the tee will usually find serious trouble.
There’s not a whole lot to the green complexes, so it’s fine to take average to below-average putters who are hitting it great tee-to-green. Distance off the tee is certainly helpful this week, but accuracy is more important than you usually see at events that yield winning scores around 20-under-par. Those in control of their golf ball should be able to score with ease, but all the water means you don’t want to pick scrambling wizards who tend to spray it around.
If you’re thinking about a wager or heading to a sportsbook, our advice is to mostly forget about putting stats for the week and focus on players who tend to hit it flush and keep it on the fairways.
