Minnesota gets regular PGA Tour stop in 7-year deal

The 3M Open will be played at the TPC Twin Cities course in Blaine starting next year. Fans gathered at the ninth green to watch the event when it was

Hollis Cavner, president of Pro Links Sports, which will run the event, and 3M officials said they have settled on a week for next summer, but no announcement will be made until the PGA Tour releases its full 2019 schedule on July 10.

The PGA Tour found room on the schedule for the 3M Open when the Houston Open announced it was moving to the fall starting in 2019.

A source told KSTP Sports the Fourth of July spot is the more likely landing spot for the 3M Open.

It will be the first time the Tour will play a regular event in Minnesota since the St. Paul Open/Minnesota Golf Classic was last played in 1969.

The 2019 event will mark the first official PGA Tour event in Minnesota since the 2009 PGA Championship at Hazeltine in Chaska.

The tour stop and seven-year agreement had been widely reported previously, so it does not come as a surprise. Look at how successful we've been on the Champions Tour. It's had a Ryder Cup and Final Fours and the Super Bowl.

Cavner expects the event to host most of the PGA Tour's top players.

He also recruits constantly at home in Jupiter, Fla., where he lives a few miles down the road from Brooks Koepka, who won his second consecutive U.S. Open on Sunday.

The 3M Championship has offered free admission for many years.

"I think we'll be one of the biggest events on the tour within a couple years", Cavner said.

Alan Cull, director of golf at TPC Twin Cities, said the course never played at its toughest or longest for the world's best 50-over golfers. Keel said the goal is for the event to set ticket prices around the average cost of other PGA Tour events. That gives the PGA Tour two new markets next year that were not on the schedule this season.

The 3M Open Fund plans to donate all proceeds from the tournament to local organizations.
