Wolff Seals Memorable 3M Title Success

Wolff Seals Memorable 3M Title Success

Matthew Wolff hit an eagle at the 18th hole to claim his first PGA Tour title by one shot at the 3M Open in Twin Cities, Minnesota. The 20-year-old American, who was only competing in his fourth PGA event and third as a professional, came into contention on Saturday with a third-round 62.

And just as it looked like he would be forced to go into a play-off on Sunday, Wolff rolled in a 26-foot putt to record a seven-under-par 65 to finish on 21-under for the tournament. Bryson DeChambeau and Collin Morikawa were left tied for second place after both concluded with rounds of 66.

Speaking about his victory, which ensures him a place on the PGA Tour until 2021 and secures him a place in the 2020 Masters and US PGA Championship, Wolff said: “It’s a really special feeling. “I just proved to myself I can be out here.”

On the eagle at the 18th, he added: “I was shaking, to be honest. A lot of my putts weren’t going in and I was just kind of telling myself one’s bound to drop in. “It happened at the right time. I just gave it a chance and it went over the right spot that I pointed out. And as soon as it dropped, the tears started coming.”
