The Greats of Golf is a team competition teeing off after the regular field on Saturday, August 2, as the last three groups of the day. Tentative tee times are 11:50 a.m., 12:00 p.m. and 12:10 p.m. CT.

“To have The Big Three, Nancy Lopez, Annika Sorenstam and all of the legends together in one event is history in the making,” said Robin Torgerson, vice president U.S. Sales for 3M.

The Greats of Golf Challenge presented by Post-It® Brand Products began in 2004. This tournament within a tournament is a unique feature of the 3M Championship. Competitors in the Greats of Golf Challenge are members of the World Golf Hall of Fame, have 20 or more career victories on the PGA and Champions Tours, or are former major championship winners.

Defending his title at the 3M Championship is Tom Pernice, Jr., who will be competing against a world-class field featuring such Champions Tour stars as Rocco Mediate, Colin Montgomerie and Bernhard Langer. Fan favorites Nick Price, Tom Lehman and Champions Tour rookie Miguel Angel Jimenez are also set to compete.

General admission will be free for all spectators. The tournament will donate $1.3 million to benefit healthcare programs at Allina Health. “Our sponsors and volunteers continue to help us improve the lives of people in our community with their continued dedication to the 3M Championship,” said Hollis Cavner, executive director for the 3M Championship. The 3M Championship has donated over $21 million to charity since 1993.
