The big event is right around the corner.
Day 2 of the Insight Pro-Am is almost in the books. The tournament itself starts tomorrow. The top five points earners in the season long Charles Schwab Cup are all playing here this weekend. The top two in the current standing stopped by the Media Center for a pre-tournament interview this morning.
Two-time 3M Championship winner Bernhard Langer talked about his stretch of great golf. After having won last week’s Senior Open Championship by a record 13 shots, Langer is excited to be back at the 3M Championship. He loves playing at the TPC Twin Cities and in front of the great Minnesota golf fans.
Colin Montgomerie’s good golf streak is second to only Langer. He is playing the 3M Championship for the second time, after having finished in a tie for 7th last year.
In addition to Langer and Montgomerie, the field includes former champions Jay Haas, Hale Irwin and Tom Kite, Minnesota favorite Fred Funk, Minnesota native Tom Lehman, Vijay Singh and Craig Stadler. It’s shaping up to be a great tournament. With the course conditions, scores should be low.
Tee times on Friday start at 10:20. The weather looks to be perfect all weekend and admission and parking are FREE!!!
