After a successful Ryder Cup in 2016, Minnesota is getting more golf with the PGA TOUR announcing that it will be making a stop in the land of 10,000 lakes.
3M and the PGA TOUR today announced an agreement to bring an official PGA TOUR event to the Twin Cities beginning in 2019. Hosted by the nonprofit 3M Open Fund, the seven-year deal will bring the world’s top golfers to TPC Twin Cities in Blaine for a new FedExCup Season event, the 3M Open, beginning next summer.
The 2019 dates for the 3M Open will be made official in the coming weeks as part of the PGA TOUR’s 2018-19 schedule announcement.
We are on a hot streak within the state of getting some premiere events our way. I know this isn’t on par with the Super Bowl or Final Four, but this still feels like a good win for Minnesota. Nothing but great things were said about us hosting the Ryder Cup here back in 2016. The PGA TOUR event won’t be at Hazeltine, but at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine.
It’s a 7 year agreement between the PGA and TPC Twin Cities, which brings us to 2026. Couple that with the fact that the Ryder Cup is coming back to Hazeltine and we have ourselves a nice little honeypot of golf here for the next decade at least.
