Some of the world's leading golfers will be in Blaine later this week for the second 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities.

The final field for the tournament, which runs Thursday through Sunday, was confirmed by organizers on Friday.

Returning for the second year is Brooks Koepka, the World No. 6 and four-time Major winner, whose brother, Chase, is also confirmed.

He will be joined by 3M Open debutants Dustin Johnson (World No. 4) and England's Tommy Fleetwood (World No. 12), while World No. 19 Tony Finau, who is currently leading the Memorial Tournament, is also confirmed.

Another Englishman, Paul Casey (No. 25) and Austrian No. 29 Bernd Wiesberger, are also in the field, along with notable names including Stewart Cink, K.J. Choi, Luke Donald, and Jason Dufner.

Minnesotans in the field include Tim Herron, and former Gopher Eric Van Rooyen.

Defending his title will be Matthew Wolff, who won the inaugural event last year.

This time around, the golfers will play before an empty course, with the COVID-19 restrictions meaning the PGA Tour has resumed with no crowds in attendance.

The first two days of the tournament will be screened on the Golf Channel, with the final two on CBS.
