Tony Finau returns this year as the defending champion, and he will be looking to bounce back from a missed cut at last week's Open Championship, with another win at the 3M Open.

Cameron Young is next up in the betting market, having challenged at The Open Championship last week, but can Young finally breakthrough and win his first PGA Tour title at TPC Twin Cities?

Last but not least, one of the names that will catch people's eyes this week is Justin Thomas, who is desperate to make both the FedEx Cup Playoffs, and this year's Ryder Cup team. Unless he improves his form, he will miss out on both, so this could be fortnight for last year's PGA Championship winner.

2022 3M Open Top 5

To give you an idea of the caliber of players who contend at this tournament, let's look at the Top 5 Finishers from last year's 3M Open.

1st Tony Finau

T2 Sungjae Im

T2 Emiliano Grillo

T4 Scott Piercy

T4 Tom Hoge

Tony Finau picked himself last year. He had two top 5 finishes in his past five starts and had finished 3rd in the event before.

Sunjae Im had struggled overseas playing the Scottish Open and Open Championship but had posted four top 10 finishes since the start of 2022 and had finished 15th here on debut.

Emiliano Grillo had finished T2 at the John Deere Classic two starts prior and had a 3rd place finish at this event before.

Tom Hoge had missed six cuts coming in but was also having a career year, having won for the first time on the PGA Tour back in February, before finishing T9 at the PGA Championship, so his long-term form was impressive.

The real shock was Scott Piercy who hadn't posted a top 10 all season, but even he had finished 15th at this course before, so there were signs for every player last year.

3M Open Picks: Five Players to Finish Top 5 at the 3M Open

Looking for inspiration for your Top 5 finishers this week? 

Here's five players to consider this week:

Sepp Straka - Sepp Straka won the John Deere Classic two starts ago, and backed it up with his best ever major finish, as he finished T2 behind Brian Harman last week at The Open Championship. He now returns to the 3M Open where has an 18th place finish, and he has a spot on the Ryder Cup team still to book. Add Straka to your shortlist.

Sungjae Im - Last week's top 20 at the Open Championship was a positive effort for Im who has looked short of his best in recent weeks. He now returns to a course where has finished 15th and 2nd at, and with plenty to play for, he should be a factor here.

Emiliano Grillo - Last year's runner-up Emiliano Grillo now has two top-3 finishes on this golf course, and is enjoying another good season. Grillo won the Charles Schwab Challenge back in May, and his T6 finish last week was also his best major finish so far. Grillo is the best player at this course without a win, and he will look to change that this week, as he rides a high from last week.

Lucas Glover - Lucas Glover has finished 4th, 6th, and 5th in his past three starts, is hitting the ball really well and most importantly has hit putter working. The former US Open winner has finished 6th on this golf course in the past and will ride his hot form to a positive week here.

JT Poston - JT Poston is playing some consistent golf right now, with his 41st place finish at The Open Championship following up back-to-back 6th place finishes at the John Deere Classic and Scottish Open. Poston has finished 28th and 11th in two starts here, and has history of repeating form, so back him whilst he's hot.
