3M Open Recap Rounds 1 & 2 + Round 3 Odds and Picks

3M Open Recap Rounds 1 & 2 + Round 3 Odds and Picks

World number 110, Lee Hodges, finds himself with a four stroke lead at the halfway stage of a weather delayed 3M Open. Here the 3M Open Recap Rounds 1 & 2.

Bad weather doesn’t delay Hodges progress 

The second round of the 2023 3M Open was constantly under threat due to poor weather with several players still needing to finish their second rounds today. 

Lee Hodges was one of the final players to successfully complete their rounds and the American heads into the weekend with a cosy four shot cushion. 

Hodges has been in scintillating form, picking up 15 shots through his first 36 holes without recording a single bogey. 

He has been mixed in form this season, only being able to post one top ten finish which came back in April at the 2023 Valero Texas Open. Yet to win on Tour, he looks to have a golden opportunity here. 

The biggest danger to Hodges could be Tony Finau. The defending champion, Finau spoke of his need to perform well this week to throw himself back into the Ryder Cup picture and he has done exactly that through the first two rounds. 

Two successive rounds of 66 have left the big hitting American four strokes off the lead and he will believe he can charge up the leaderboard today. 

Within the group sitting four shots off the lead is J.T Poston. Poston has been in good form over the last few weeks, recording top ten finishes in both the 2023 John Deere Classic and 2023 Scottish Open

Twice a winner on Tour, Poston is looking for his first win of 2023 and is another who is more than capable of making a charge. 

3M Open Round 3 Betting Preview 

Due to his four shot lead, Lee Hodges will start today as the man they will all need to beat. 

A surprising name to find at the top, Hodges has missed the cut in three of his last four starts but has clearly rediscovered his game here. 

Having been immaculate off the tee, Hodges has also been in devastating form on the greens. If he keeps up this level of play he won’t be caught. 

Next in the betting comes Tony Finau. Ranked as one of the highest players in the field, it’s been a year of ups and downs for the big swinging American. A winner at the 2023 Mexican Open, recent results have been a concern as he has missed the cut in three of his last five starts. 

Being back in familiar territory has seen him return to his best and he will be hopeful of reducing the four stroke deficit he currently faces. 

J.T Poston rounds out the top three in the betting. Looking to win his first title since the 2022 John Deere Classic, he has been in consistent form of late and looks more than capable of shooting low today. 

One man to keep an eye on today could be Emiliano Grillo. The Argentine finished in a tie for second at this tournament last year and heads into the weekend fresh off the back of a fine performance at last week’s Open where he finished in a tie for 6th.
