TPC Twin Cities to hold PGA Tour press conference on Monday

It could be to announce Minnesota as a new PGA Tour host.

It now looks all but certain that Minnesota will host a PGA Tour event beginning next year. 

A spokesperson from the Arnold Palmer-designed TPC Twin Cities course in Blaine tells BMTN that a press conference will be held at the course clubhouse on Monday at 12:30 p.m., falling in line with an Associated Press report saying the course will become home to a PGA Tour event in 2019. 

TPC Twin Cities has been the center of speculation as a new home for a PGA Tour tournament since the Houston Golf Association was given a May 31 deadline to find a new sponsor for the Houston Open. 

The HGA did not, but the Houston Astros Foundation agreed to a last-minute deal with tour officials and on Tuesday were rewarded a tournament that will keep the PGA in Houston, which will move to the fall when temperatures are cooler in south Texas. 

Houston's exit from the pre-U.S. Open slot in June leaves a vacancy, which Minnesota, or maybe even Detroit, which was also given a tour event recently, could fill.

Golf Digest's John Feinstein was the first to report that the Twin Cities are "chomping at the bit" to host a PGA event with 3M serving as the tourney's primary sponsor. 

3M has sponsored the a Champions Tour event at TPC Twin Cities since 1993, a PGA tournament that features players who can no longer consistently compete with the best-of-the-best  on the main tour. 

It's looking very good for Minnesota golf fans, and we'll learn a lot more on Monday.
