Power Rankings: 3M Championship

Bernard Langer goes after his fifth victory of the 2017 PGA TOUR Champions season this week at the 3M Championship.

Langer added his third major victory of the year last week at The Senior Open Championship presented by Rolex at Royal Porthcawl in Wales to go along with the Regions Tradition and the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship. Jack Nicklaus is the only other golfer to win three senior majors in a season (1991).

Langer also won the season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai and has a massive lead in the race for the Charles Schwab Cup.

Joe Durant will defend the title he won last year at TPC Twin Cities in a playoff against Miguel Angel Jimenez. Durant shot 19-under 197 with closing rounds of 64 and 63. On the first extra hole, Durant made a 10-foot eagle putt for the victory. The win was the second for Durant on PGA TOUR Champions.

Langer missed the playoff by 2 shots. He put himself into contention with a quick start – six birdies on the first seven holes – before his momentum stalled with a bogey at the 14th hole. He tied for third with Kevin Sutherland.
