The only thing that could've made the ending to the 3M Open better is if it were Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson trading eagle putts on the 18th hole, but the big-shot making displayed by Bryson DeChambeau and Matthew Wolff was incredible enough. 

Wolff, a 20-year-old playing in just his third tournament on the PGA Tour, drained a 26-foot putt for eagle to take the lead and win at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine with a final score of 21 under par. 

Just before Wolff's ice-in-the-veins moment, DeChambeau, the No. 8 player in the world, buried an eagle putt of his own on the 18th that sent him to the clubhouse at 20 under, one shot ahead of Wolff and fellow rookie Collin Morikawa. 

Morikawa just missed his eagle putt that would've put him into a playoff with Wolff. 

For the 20-year-old, his 26-foot putt was worth $1.152 million as the first champion in 3M Open history.
