Will say one thing about the 3M Open, players will love it. One of the big reasons is the person that runs the event, Hollis Cavner. In the early 80s when I worked for ABC Sports I ran into Cavner who was started his career as a runner. You could tell his career was not as a producer or a director, but Cavner was very friendly and learned how to take care of people’s needs and he was a very organized person. After a year or two, Cavner realized TV production was not his future and got involved with a management group. Ten years later Cavner was making a name for himself as players would rave at how well Cavner events were done. Cavner’s big baby was the 3M Championship and you ask any Champions Tour player, 95% would point out how well run the 3M Championship was, thanks to Hollis Cavner. He was responsible for the switch from the PGA Tour Champions to the PGA Tour and I can guarantee that players and anyone associated with the PGA Tour will say that the 3M Open will be the best run event on the PGA Tour schedule.
