KENNY PERRY WINS 2015 3M CHAMPIONSHIP

Kenny Perry is the winner of the 2015 3M Championship with a three-day 18-under par total.  Perry sandwiched a tournament record-tying round of 61 between 69 and 68.  His second round on Saturday included a hole-in-one on the 188-yard par-3 4th hole.

Perry joins Hale Irwin (1997, 1999, 2002) and Bernhard Langer (2009, 2012) as the only players with multiple wins of the event and Perry is the first player with back-to-back titles in tournament history after winning the tournament last year.

Perry’s 4-stroke advantage going into the final round held as he finished four shots in front of second place finishers Bernhard Langer, Kevin Sutherland and Scott Dunlap

Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Lee Trevino and other professional golf legends delighted the huge crowds on Saturday in the Post-It® Products Greats of Golf Challenge. They also showed that they still have game as Trevino holed out his second shot from the fairway on 11 for eagle to help his team take a share of the low score.  The LPGA legends team of Annika Sorenstam, Nancy Lopez and Pat Bradley were back again for the competition, which celebrated its 12th year as an 18-hole scramble tournament within the tournament.

The 3M Championship donated another $1.3 million to benefit healthcare programs at Allina Health’s Abbott Northwestern, Mercy & Unity and United Hospitals.  The tournament has donated more than $23 million to charity since its inception in 1993.

The TPC Twin Cities was in immaculate condition, the weather was spectacular and the contingency of Minnesota golf fans turned out in large numbers again this year.  We’ll see you next August 1 – 7 for the 2016 3M Championship.

About the Champions Tour
Collectively, the Champions Tour has the most recognizable and accomplished players in the game, with many of its 32 members in the World Golf Hall of Fame competing regularly in its events. The Tour also counts numerous other major championship winners among its members. The Champions Tour is a membership organization of professional golfers age 50 and older. Conceived in 1980 as the Senior PGA Tour, it started with just four events and purses totaling $475,000. The Champions Tour's primary purpose is to provide financial opportunities for its players, entertain and inspire its fans, deliver substantial value to its partners, create outlets for volunteers to give back, protect the integrity of the game and generate significant charitable and economic impact in communities in which it plays. Points earned in official Charles Schwab Cup events in 2014 determined Bernhard Langer as the Charles Schwab Cup champion, the season-long competition designed to recognize the Champions Tour’s leading player.
