- See the odds to make and miss the cut for the top players at the 3M Open
The hangover going from the British Open to the 3M Open will be out in full force this week, not only for golf fans but for the small group who are electing to play in back-to-back events.
Just three of the top-50 players in the world are making the trip back from across the pond to Minnesota this week to tee it up at TPC Twin Cities, and one of those players is a prime candidate to miss the cut.

That of course would be Sungjae Im, who’s been a shell of himself since a forced layoff due to COVID interrupted some solid form.
Sungjae Trunk Slams Again
Im was a popular outright bet at the U.S. Open but failed miserably to make the cut. He trunk slammed again the next time we saw him at the Genesis Scottish Open. We made the weekend at the British Open, but finished dead last among the 81 players who played four rounds.

In prime scoring conditions on Saturday and Sunday, Im shot a pair of 74’s carding just three birdies in 36 holes. He wound up losing 6.6 total strokes to the field and it’s hard to imagine he’s going to psyched to play in what is shaping up as a glorified Korn Ferry Tour event this week.
As mentioned in our sleepers and longshots article, the 3M Open will likely be a scoring fest and players are going to need to rack up birdies in bunches to stay competitive. Scoring has been a big weakness in Im’s game lately, as he ranks 92nd in birdies or better in this watered down field over the past 24 rounds.
Pick: Sungjae Im to Miss Cut (+275)
Make the Cut Parlay
While Im is someone we’re looking to bet against at the 3M Open, there are plenty of players we want to back.
At the top of that list is Brendan Steele, who leads the field in strokes gained off the tee over the past 24 rounds, and ranks second in approach play. Seems like a pretty good anchor for our Make the Cut Parlay.

Let’s pair him with Nick Hardy, who ranks fourth in the field in birdies or better over the past 24 rounds, and J.T. Poston who ranks third in that category and has finished first and second in his last two American starts.
WOW what a week here @JDCLASSIC!! Feels amazing to get win #2 with my man @AaronFlener! So many people to thank for all of the support behind the scenes but most importantly the friends and family that have been there through the incredible highs as well as the difficult lows! 🏆 pic.twitter.com/IGMLFaja4j
— J.T. Poston (@JT_ThePostman) July 4, 2022
Next let’s Canadian Adam Svensson, who leads the field in birdies or better over the past 24 rounds while ranking top-six in strokes gained approach and putting.
Emiliano Grillo’s last American start was a runner-up result to Poston, and the Argentinian finished third at the 3M Open in 2020. We’ll add him as well as Wyndham Clark to round our parlay out. Clark has made five of his past six cuts with two top-20 results, and ranks top-30 in the field in driving distance, birdies or better and strokes gained putting.
Pick: Make the Cut Parlay (+536)
