Cameron Champ wins 3M Open for third PGA Tour title

·1 min read

Louis Oosthuizen lipped out with a shot from just inside 100 yards on his final hole that would have tied Cameron Champ and given the South African a share of the 3M Open lead in the clubhouse at 14 under.

Instead Oosthuizen had to settle for the clubhouse lead one back at 13 under, putting the pressure on Champ to finish strong. The 26-year-old made birdie on No. 15 to take a two-shot advantage but hit a wayward drive left that found the thick rough on the final hole. After two lay ups to get back in the fairway, Champ spun his approach shot to a couple feet and signed for a 5-under 66 on Sunday at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, Minnesota, to earn his third win on the PGA Tour. Champ previously won the 2019 Safeway Open and 2018 Sanderson Farms Championship.

The Houston resident had struggled in recent events. Before a T-11 at the John Deere Classic two weeks ago, Champ had missed the cut or withdrawn in his previous five starts. The former Texas A&M Aggie is now the fourth player 27 yeard old or younger to win a Tour event in each of the last three years, joining Jon Rahm, Collin Morikawa and Bryson DeChambeau.
