3M Open Winners and History
The 3M Open is the successor to the 3M Championship, a PGA TOUR Champions event held from 1993 – 2018. Like the 3M Championship, the 3M open is held at TPC Twin Cities.
3M stands for “Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing.” The Minnesota-based conglomerate produces — among other things — tape, sticky notes (3M invented sticky notes) and other adhesives; sandpaper and other abrasives; laminates, personal protective gear such as googles and protective eyewear; window films to protect against uv rays and offer insulation; medical products such as bandages; electrical connecting and insulating materials; car-care products, electronic circuits, healthcare software and optical films. 3M is one of those companies that you don’t realize is ubiquitous until you start looking.
The inaugural year for the 3M Open was 2019. A list of 3M Open Winners follows:
