It's official, the PGA Tour has modified its schedule in wake of the coronavirus pandemic and the 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine is still on as scheduled this summer.
The PGA season is set to begin with four tournaments – no fans allowed – beginning at the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas on June 11-14. The first four tournaments will be played without fans in attendance, with all events beyond then to be determined at the COVID-19 situation evolves.
That puts the 3M Open in limbo for those wanting to attend, but at the very least it is currently slated to be held as scheduled July 23-26, with events for the event beginning July 20.
TPC Twin Cities General Manager Chris Weinhold told the Anoka County Union Herald that the decision on whether or not to have spectators will be considered sometime next month.
"The bigger decisions affect the build-out in advance of the event that is scheduled to begin on May 1," Weinhold said. "At this point, we do not have these answers, but we still have time.”
The 3M Open will be preceded July 13-19 by the Memorial Tournament in Ohio and followed by the World Golf Championships in Tennessee July 27 through August 2.
