Joe Durant is the winner of the 2016 3M Championship in a one-hole playoff over Miguel Angel Jimenez.  Durant and Jimenez each birdied the last hole in regulation play to post 19-under par 197s.  Durant won on the first extra hole after he eagled the 18th hole while Jimenez birdied it. 

Durant started the tournament with a 70 on Friday, which he followed with a 64 on Saturday.  He began the day on Sunday at 10-under par and four strokes back of Jimenez.  Durant had 10 birdies in the final round en route to a 9-under 63, which was the low round of the day.

Bernard Langer and Kevin Sutherland finished tied for third with 199s.  Langer, who holds the 3M Championship record for the best come from behind win when he took home the trophy in 2012 after starting the day 6 strokes back, made an early charge on Sunday.  He shot 30 on the front nine but his attempt for a third title came up short on the back nine.

World Golf Hall of Fame member Larry Nelson shot his age (68) in the opening round of the tournament on Friday.

Team Ryder Cup (Andy North, Dave Stockton and Tom Weiskopf and captained by Tony Jacklin) won this year’s Post-It® Products Greats of Golf Challenge.  The tournament within the 3M Championship celebrated its 13th year as an 18-hole scramble format featuring Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Hale Irwin and other professional golf legends, including LPGA greats Annika Sorenstam, Nancy Lopez and Pat Bradley.  They delighted the huge crowds on Saturday and signed autographs for fans young and young at heart.

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 $24 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 July 31 – August 6 for the 2017 Silver Anniversary of the 3M Championship.
