3M Open: Matthew Wolff claims first PGA Tour event win

Wolff, at 20 years, 2 months and 23 days old, became the ninth-youngest victor on the pro tour and the youngest since Jordan Spieth won his first pro event at the age of 19 years, 11 months and 17 days at the 2013 John Deere Classic.

Wolff played his college golf out of Oklahoma State University and won the 2019 NCAA Division I Individual Championship.

"I had a blast out there, and to make that putt was everything". Wolff was named first-team All-American as a freshman when he led the Cowboys to a national championship.

She missed a 15-foot birdie putt on the final hole and remained tied for the lead with Shanshan Feng (65), Tiffany Joh (66), and Ariya Jutanugarn (67).

"These guys are really good, and I know I'm really good, so it's going to be fun", Wolff said.

ONEIDA, Wis. (AP) — Shanshan Feng hit a 7-iron to 3 feet for a birdie on the final hole Sunday to close with a 9-under 63 and a one-shot victory over Ariya Jutanugarn in the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic.

Yet this week, everything went in his favour, and now you can expect to see a lot more of the entertaining young star: His victory grants him a two-year exemption on Tour, and a spot at the Masters in 2020.

A birdie at the last saw Bryson DeChambeau join Matthew Wolff and Collin Morikawa atop the leaderboard in Minnesota on Saturday.

As many as six players were tied for the top on a warm afternoon ideal for scoring. He sank the dramatic putt in front of a packed 18th gallery at the TPC Twin Cities, before watching Morikawa just miss his eagle attempt from 22 feet.

After holing a 26-footer to birdie the par-3 13th, Wolff put his approach to three feet at 15 to set up a birdie, took his lone bogey at the par-3 17th after finding a bunker, then birdied the par-5 18th from nine feet.

Rafa Cabrera-Bello started the day a shot behind third-round leader Robert Rock but was in front by two strokes after making three birdies in his first five holes.

Brehm appeared to have it wrapped up with a two-shot lead playing the par-5 18th at the Peek'n Peak Resort.

Wolff, who has often played with fellow Californian Morikawa, finished with the winning eagle, five birdies and a lone bogey at the ninth hole. "That's just something that I've got to work on".
