The four-time major champion, Brooks Koepka will play the first two rounds in the inaugural 3M Open alongside Patrick Reed and Kevin Na in Minnesota. Koepka has thrived in the major setting this summer, but his last two starts in regular events have been annoying: a T-50 finish in Canada and a T-57 result a couple of weeks ago in Connecticut. This week, Koepka will renew his quest to figure out a non-major in Minnesota.
Reed’s T-5 finish at the Rocket Mortgage Classic was his best result on Tour since the 2018 U.S. Open. He will be playing for the fourth straight week. Na captured the Charles Schwab Challenge in May and finished sixth last month at the Korean Open.
Mickelson is making his first start since missing the cut in Hartford, while Finau has missed three cuts in a row following a runner-up at Colonial. Lashley won last week in Detroit after taking the final spot in the field, and Phil Mickelson will be grouped with Tony Finau and Nate Lashley.
Bryson DeChambeau joins Koepka as a top-10 player in the field, and he’ll be joined by Charles Howell III and Keegan Bradley. Bradley is making his first start since a runner-up showing at the Travelers Championship, while Howell contended through 36 holes in Detroit before fading to a T-35 finish,
Matsuyama finished T-13 last week in Detroit while making his 24th straight cut, the longest active streak on Tour. He is among the final PGA Tour Live featured groups other groups include, Corey Conners and the international trio of Jason Day.
