Arnold Palmer will make his first appearance of the year on the Champions Tour August 4-5 when he plays in a special, unofficial event in conjunction with the 3M Championship at the TPC Twin Cities course in Blaine, Minnesota, outside Minneapolis. It will be his first public competition since the Wendy’s Champions Skins Game in Hawaii January 13-14.
He, Don January and Miller Barber, three of the biggest stars in the early years of the then PGA Seniors Tour, will again make up one of the three teams competing in the “Greats of Golf” exhibition, which will be integrated into the regular 54-hole tournament.
The other threesomes in the best-ball-of-threesome competition are Billy Casper, Lee Trevino, Chi Chi Rodriguez, Tony Jacklin, Gene Littler and Charles Coody. All nine men will play in a pro-amateur at 3M’s Tartan Park golf course on Friday, August 3.
