Tom Pernice, Jr. held off a Sunday charge by Jeff Sluman and Corey Pavin to claim the 21st 3M Championship title on Sunday, August 4, 2013 at the TPC Twin Cities in Blaine. Pernice’s 4-under par round of 68 in the final round followed his opening round 66 and second round 65 to give him a three-day total of 17-under par 199. This win is Pernice’s second on the Champions Tour and first win since 2009. His victory earned him 263 poits in the Charles Schwab Cup season-long race.

Sluman birdied his first seven holes on Sunday and eight of the first nine to establish a new tournament nine-hole record of 28, beating the old mark of 29 that was most recently matched by David Frost in the third round in 2010 en route to his victory that year. Sluman added two more birdies on the back and had no bogeys to shoot a 62, the low round of any player in this year’s tournament and one off the all-time low, also set by Frost in 2010. Sluman’s three-day total of 200 came one short of Pernice and gave him a tie for second place in this year’s event with Pavin.

Team Majors won the 10th annual Post-It® Greats of Golf Challenge, a team better-ball competition featuring three teams of professional golf’s legends in an 18-hole event on Saturday. Team Majors (Lee Trevino, Fuzzy Zoeller and David Graham and captained by Don January) won the Miller Barber Cup with a team 16-under par 56.

Tying for second place in the Greats of Golf Challenge were Team LPGA (Annika Sorenstam, Nancy Lopez and Pat Bradley and captained by Arnold Palmer), and Team USA (Johnny Miller, Dave Stockton and Bill Rogers and captained by Billy Casper), who each shot a 14-under team 58. This year was the first in the 10-year history of the Greats of Golf that one team was comprised of women’s professional golfers.

The weather was mild, general admission was free for the fifth consecutive year and Minnesota golf fans turned out in droves to watch this year’s tournament and to see the women compete in the Greats of Golf. Saturday’s gallery was the largest the 3M Championship has had in its 21-year run.

After exceeding the $20 million mark in overall charitable contributions last year, the 3M Championship will donate another $1.3 million to charity this year, thanks to the generosity of the tournament’s corporate sponsors. Proceeds will benefit healthcare programs at Allina Health’s Abbott Northwestern, Mercy & Unity and United Hospitals.
