Cameron Champ wins 3M Open by two strokes

Australian golfer Cameron Champ carded a superb 5-under 66 in the final round to claim 3m Open title at the TPC Twin Cities on Sunday.

The 26-year-old Champ smashed five birdies in his bogey-free final round to grab his third PGA Tour victory at the $6,600,000 prize money event.

“I feel like whenever I get in those moments, I'm super comfortable and super in the zone and it feels like it's mine to take. It's not so much mine to lose, I feel like it's mine to take and I feel that's how it was today,” Champ said.

Louis Oosthuizen once again failed to capture the PGA Tour title despite a solid 5-und er 66 in the fourth & final round.

In four major tournaments this season, the South-African Oosthuizen remained in contention in three but did not win.

Though he was not the favourite to win 3M open, he smashed three birdies in the last four holes to give himself an outside chance, as he was six pairs ahead of the champion champ.

"We had a good time here this week, and I'm just trying to see if I can go one better than all these seconds and thirds," Oosthuizen said.

Cameron Tringale, the overnight leader, shot 74 in the final round to finish six strokes behind Champ, leaving PGA Championship winner Phil Mickelson as the only 54-hole leader to win in the last 13 tour events.

Matthew Wolff (2019) and Michael Thompson (2020), the former champions of the 3M Open, both finished their campaign at a tied-39th position at 5-under.
