2020 3M Open: Michael Thompson’s Winning Clubs

By Ryan Watson

 

Michael Thompson had to wait 7 years between his first and second PGA Tour wins, which he achieved at the 2020 3M Open. The win netted Thompson a fat paycheck and also 2 more years on the PGA Tour through the winner’s exemption. It was an emotional win for a golfer who often is seen as one who “makes up the numbers”, but this week he was phenomenal. Thompson showed that accurate shotmaking and strategic golf can still overcome the advantage distance has granted some of his younger competitors with a veteran's performance. The following are Thompson’s winning clubs.
