Tommy Fleetwood Makes His Highly-Anticipated Return to the PGA Tour as One of the Headliners of the 3M Open

Following a second consecutive week of fantastic golf at Muirfield Village, which saw Jon Rahm overtake Rory McIlroy to become the No. 1 player in the world, the PGA Tour is finally leaving Ohio and will head to Minnesota for the week for the second edition of the 3M Open.

The field at the 3M Open certainly won’t be as strong as what golf fans witnessed at the Memorial but it’s still got some star power with four of the top 20 players in the world set to tee it up at TPC Twin Cities, one of whom is Tommy Fleetwood, who’ll be making his first appearance on the PGA Tour since the season resumed last month.

For the first time since the first round of The Players Championship, the final round on the PGA Tour before the season was shut down, Tommy Fleetwood will play a competitive round of golf. It’s been four months since we’ve seen the Englishman in action as he chose to remain at home during the first month of the restart.

With the travel restrictions currently in place, Fleetwood returned to the U.S. a little over two weeks ago to complete his quarantine period and has been comfortably doing so in the Hamptons. As for getting in some work, he’s been playing rounds at famed Shinnecock Hills, which has hosted five U.S. Opens, so it’s not as if he’s just been sitting around. He was expected to travel to Minnesota on Sunday night and will be one of four top-20 players in the field at the 3M Open.

Tommy Fleetwood has dropped just two spots in the Official World Golf Ranking during his hiatus from the PGA Tour, dropping from No. 10 to No. 12. He’ll be the third-highest-ranked player in the field at the 3M Open and hopes to continue the success he’s had this season. While he missed the cut in his most recent start at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, he’d finished 18th or better in his other four starts in 2020, including a tie for second in Abu Dhabi and a solo third at the Honda Classic.

The other three top-20 players in the field at TPC Twin Cities are world No. 4 Dustin Johnson, No. 6 Brooks Koepka, and No. 17 Tony Finau.

Johnson is coming off a disastrous week at the Memorial in which he shot 80 in each of the first two rounds and missed out on the weekend. Koepka barely made the cut at Muirfield and finished tied for 62nd. Finau held a share of the lead at the Memorial through 36 holes but struggled on the weekend, shooting 73-78 over the final two days to finish eighth.

Defending 3M Open champion Matthew Wolff, who moved up to No. 55 in the world with a T-22 finish at Muirfield, will also be at TPC Twin Cities to defend his title.
