3M Open features art from patients at Masonic Children's Hospital

Giant golf balls feature pictures drawn by patients like Tripp Smith, who has a congenital heart disease.

BLAINE, Minn. — Even on a sunny day at the 3M Open you'll still be able to see a rainbow. 

Giant golf balls on display off the 18th fairway at TPC Twin Cities are part of the "Wrapped in Happiness" initiative. They feature pictures drawn by patients like Tripp Smith from the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. 

The 4-year-old, who lives with his family in Hugo, battles a congenital heart disease call aortic stenosis. 

"Art therapy is a great outlet," Tripp's mother Krissy said. "I know it brings our kids a lot of joy."

Art and golf is proving to be a perfect combo for the Smith Family, who said they'll be heading out to the course next week. 

The 3M Open is doing even more by giving back for birdies made by PGA TOUR professionals during the Open. 

In the case of Masonic Children's Hospital, any money raised will go toward art therapy at the hospital.
