2021 Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama Commits to 3M Open
June 30, 2022
BLAINE, Minn. – Today 3M Open officials announced that 2021 Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama will compete in the fourth edition of the 3M Open, scheduled for July 18-24 at TPC Twin Cities.
In his only appearance at the 3M Open, Matsuyama finished T7 in 2019--the tournament’s inaugural year. The eight-time PGA TOUR champion became the first Japanese player to win one of golf’s major championships when he won the 2021 Masters Tournament. He has also won two World Golf Championships titles. He ended last year with a victory at the Zozo Championship outside of Tokyo and two starts later won at the Sony Open in Hawaii this season. Matsuyama, ranked 5th in the FedExCup standings has six top-ten finishes this year, including a fourth place finish a few weeks ago at the U.S. Open.
“We are certainly glad to welcome Hideki back to the 3M Open as he brings an incredible talent to what we are confident will be an impressive four-day competition,” said Mike Welch, 3M Open Tournament Director.
Hideki joins Tony Finau (16) and Sungjae Im (23) as the top-25 players in the world, who are currently committed to compete in Minnesota’s only PGA TOUR event and The Event of the Summer.
Players have until Friday, July 15 to commit and can withdraw from the tournament at any time.
