It's official, the PGA Tour is coming to Minnesota for an annual tournament starting in 2019.
The 3M Open will be played at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine. It's a seven-year contract that will feature some of golf's top names playing competitively on the FedEx Cup schedule every year from 2019 to 2025.
"We are delighted to partner with 3M for this new PGA Tour event in the Twin Cities, a community that has shown tremendous support for professional golf over the years with PGA Tour Champions, the PGA Championship, Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup, and has deservedly played host to the biggest events in sports – Super Bowls, Final Fours, among them,” said PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan.
Specific dates for the tournament haven't been released, but it very well could be scheduled for the week leading up to the U.S. Open, which is still up for grabs since the Houston Open is moving to a date later in the season.
The official FedEx Cup schedule will be released July 10.
