Stuck in the first prolonged slump of his career and on the heels of an 11-over score at the British Open, the former world No. 1 comes to Blaine barely ranked among the top 20. He sits 76th in the FedEx standings, with the top 70 qualifying for the first PGA Tour playoff event, the St. Jude Championship in Memphis, on Aug. 10. The two-time PGA Championship winner is also on thin ice for making the U.S. Ryder Cup squad.

Young was voted PGA Tour Rookie of the Year in 2022 after tying for third at the PGA Championship and finishing runner-up at the British Open. Then this season, he helped the U.S. win the Presidents Cup, tied for seventh at the Masters, was runner-up in the WGC Match Play and just wrapped up a top-10 finish at Royal Liverpool on Sunday, when he played in the final group with winner Brian Harman but shot a final-round 73. Still seeking his first PGA Tour win, Young has risen to No. 18 in the world rankings.

The first Austrian to win on the PGA Tour when he broke through at the 2022 Honda Classic, he picked up a second victory earlier this month with a two-shot triumph at the John Deere Classic. His final-round 62 was a career low. Straka tied for second at the British Open, shooting a final-round 69 on Sunday, and he has enjoyed a resurgence this season (18th in FedEx points) after trudging through six consecutive missed cuts last summer from June to August.

Emiliano Grillo

Grillo finally got back into winning form in May with a playoff victory at the Charles Schwab Challenge, ending a drought of more than 7½ years. It's enough to ensure Grillo will make the FedEx Cup playoffs for an eighth consecutive season. His 68 on Sunday at rainy Royal Liverpool, where he tied for sixth, was bested by only three players. In addition to his runner-up finish in Blaine last season, he was also tied for third in 2020 with weekend rounds of 64-65.

The Saskatchewan native likes playing here. Go figure. He finished fourth in the inaugural 3M Open in 2019 then tied for sixth two years later and faded to 38th last year after a second-round 75 that featured a tee shot on No. 15 that nearly reached Radisson Road. He has two runner-up finishes in 2023 — but is perhaps best remembered as the player security tackled on the green last month as he was celebrating countryman Nick Taylor's victory at the Canadian Open.


Blaine's Caleb VanArragon, winner of both the Minnesota State Open and State Am this month, was given an exemption Sunday night. Tom Hoge (Fargo), Troy Merritt (Spring Lake Park), Erik van Rooyen (Gophers), Frankie Capan III (Stillwater), Derek Hitchner (Blake School) and Thomas Lehman (son of Tom) also can expect large followings this week.


Kyle Rudolph, Larry Fitzgerald Jr., Matt Dumba and Justin Morneau will participate as part of a skills challenge at 6 p.m. on Wednesday on the driving range.
