So I have an aqueon 29 tank with a fluval 307 canister filter along with 2 hygger mini DC wave makers at 1600gph each. My rockwork is pretty much in the center of the tank. One wave maker is on the right side wall in the lower back corner which is pushing water behind the rockwork to the filter. The filter return is above this pushing water in the same direction. The other hygger is on the opposite side wall more towards the front of the tank and higher up pushing water across the front of the rockwork. So what I want to know is, this is a good setup to have my flow in a circular pattern around the rockwork? Or should my wave makers be pointed at each other.

Yes, that flow pattern is fine. If you have access to an air stone you can also toss that in to get a visual idea of how the flow is doing.
Wow that’s actually very creative thanks for the pointers, would you put any of the huggers on 100% power? Maybe the one in front of the rocks?

I always aim for 10-20x supplemental flow. So for a 29-gallon tank you want a total of 290-580Gph for all wavemakers combined (not including your return pump).
